    • DESCRIPTION:

    The Calathea lancifolia, more commonly known as the Rattlesnake Plant, has recently been renamed to Goeppertia insignis. In honor of the many Calathea fans still working through the transition, we’ll refer to the plant by its accepted common name. Just know the Goeppertia name seems here to stay, but it’ll take some time until we all get used to it.

    Scientific Name

    Goeppertia insignis (Calathea lancifolia is an accepted synonym)

    Origin

    Brazil


    • CARE:

    Light Requirements

    Moderate, indirect light. Will not tolerate direct sunlight.

    Watering

    Keep the soil lightly moist at all times. Water once the top inch of soil is starting to dry out. Water thoroughly each time and make sure all excess drains thoroughly.

    Soil

    Two parts peat or coco coir and one part perlite or another suitable drainage amendment works well.

    Temperature

    65°F (18ºC) to 85°F (30°C). They won’t like the thermometer to fall below 60°F (15°C).

    Fertilizer

    Fertilize every 2-4 weeks while actively growing. It is better to use a little on a regular basis than a stronger preparation less often. will not tolerate being over-fertilized.

    Humidity

    High humidity of at least 50% is very important to keep the foliage looking well.

    Flowering

    Rarely produces insignificant, white or yellow flowers on short spikes that emerge directly from the soil.

    Pruning

    Minimal required. Remove damaged or dead foliage as required.

    Propagation

    Propagate larger plants by division.

    Re-Potting

    Repot only when quite root-bound. Tolerates repotting better than most Calatheas (Goeppertias)

    Susceptible to most common houseplant pests. Early detection and treatment is important. Not prone to any specific diseases, other than root rot secondary to overwatering.

    Non-toxic to humans and animals
