Calatheas are loved for their striking leaf patterns and colours! The Rattlesnake features long and narrow leaves with ruffled edges which are unique to this variety. You'll notice that the leaves seem to move throughout the day and this is because they follow the light - usually pointed up high first thing in the morning and lowering down as the day goes on.
