Goeppertia lancifolia - rattlesnake plant / calathea & pot cover combination

  • Position: bright but indirect light
  • Soil: good potting compost
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: tender (indoors only)
  • Current height: approximately cm (including pot)
  • Pot cover: includes an 18cm earth Tivoli planter

    The upper leaf surface of this attractive house plant is a lush-looking mix of apple green and rich forest green, while the underneath is a contrasting magenta-purple. This becomes more noticeable in low light levels when the leaves fold up on themselves, and become more upright.

  • Home care: Originating from tropical regions, they like relatively stable temperatures (ideally above 15°C) and a well-lit position that does not get direct sunlight (think steamy jungle!). They like to be kept well watered, although this can be cut back a little in winter, and they thrive in high humidity, so either grow it in a steamy room, mist it with water regularly, and/or sit the pot on a tray of dampened shingle.
