Description for Calathea crotalifera orange rattle

Calathea is a genus of plants belonging to the family Marantaceae. There are several dozen species in this genus.

The unusual inflorescences are upright, shaped like a rattlesnake's rattle, up to 10 inches (25 cm) long, and consist of stacked leathery floral bracts with small, yellow or yellow-orange flowers peeking out at the edges. The relatively inconspicuous actual flowers are tubular and have 3 unequal lobes. The flowers are followed by 1/2 inch (1.3 cm) long, egg-shaped seed capsules containing dark blue seeds surrounded with white flesh. The leaves are large, dark green above with paler green along the midrib, grayish green with often purplish margins below, ovate in shape, and pinnately-veined with parallel lateral veins. The plants grow from underground rhizomes.

    Caring for Calathea crotalifera orange rattle

      A Calathea Plant likes bright indirect light; so placing it in front of an east, west, or north window is ideal. Too much direct sun burns the leaves of a Calathea Plant and causes the beautiful leaf colors to fade.

      Calatheas need to be protected from strong winds wind and even mild cold. Prolonged direct sunlight is harmful. If planted outside in colder areas, during winter the leaves take a beating in the cold. If you wish, cut off all the l eaves and stems - at the start of spring, fertilize and all will be well.


      Flowering times

    In warmer areas, Calatheas can be planted outdoors in shaded areas (minimum outdoor winter temperature is 12 degrees).

    In colder areas they can be grown as indoor plants.Calatheas are tolerant of lower light conditions, making them great indoor houseplants.
