AKA 'Rattlesnake Calathea'

Bright to medium indirect light.
Calatheas are part of the group of plants known as 'Prayer Plants' because their leaves fold upwards at night (or in low light) due to a process known as nyctinastic movement. Watch your plant towards the end of the day and you'll notice a shift from an open shape to a more upright shape! Calatheas can be very tricky to grow indoors. Ensuring proper humidity and balanced temps is essential.
