Geoppertia insignis is known as Calathea Rattlesnake because of its leaves' wavy, elongated reptile-like appearance. At first glance, you can get the impression that the plant is actually moving! The leaves of this plant are a vibrant and eye-catching addition to your collection of plants due to the numerous hues of green that are found on top, as well as the reddish-purple color that can be found underneath. A little extra care and attention will go a long way toward preserving the health and beauty of your Calathea. It's wonderful for the bathroom or kitchen because it tolerates low light and thrives in damp environments, so it's a great choice.
Note: The plant comes in nursery/grow pot.
Detailed Care Guide
Light: Bright Indirect Light
Water: Water twice a week during the growing season (May to August). Ensure that the soil is well-watered at all times. In winter, trim it back and only water when the soil is dry.
Pet Friendly: The plant is pet-friendly!
Humidity: 60% humidity required.
Temperature: Temperatures between 65℉ to 75℉ is ideal.
Fertilizer: The leaves will appear healthier and more appealing if you use a balanced liquid feed. As of April through August, feed only once a month.
Repotting: As the plant grows, you may need a broader pot for the roots and additional stems. You can divide the plant into parts if you don't have a larger pot. Calathea prefers moist but not soggy soil. Mix 50% potting soil, 20% orchid bark, 20% charcoal, and 10% perlite.
Leaves curling: Dry air and/or underwatering can cause this problem in the Geoppertia, as can low humidity.
Yellowing leaves: Overwatering might cause the lowest leaves of an older plant to yellow, which is normal.
Limp stems: Overwatering a plant in cold weather might result in weak stems, which can be a significant problem. If not addressed right away, this can have a devastating effect on the entire plant.
