Calathea insignis - Big Babes

Mature tubestock, premium and ready to plant!

pet friendly


 Calathea Insignis

Check out the Rattlesnake Plant! He has narrow, wavy-edged leaves that are pale green with purple-red on the undersides. That looks pretty snake-like to us.
This plant looks great showing off in an indoor pot where his striking foliage perks up a boring corner or office desk, and he’s perfect for a shaded spot in your tropical garden too. 
If you have pets, this is a good non-toxic choice. Who needs flowers when you can live with a foliage plant this perky? 
Calathea like to dry out before having a drink, so hold off watering until the soil is dry on top. Learn how to care for your indoor plants via our blog 'The quick start guide: Indoor plants'

Quick Facts:

  • What to use me for: Consider me a handsome air-purifying guy that brightens any room. In the garden, I’m a perfect understory plant for a tropical set up, and let’s not forget I make a top drawer ‘man’ present.

  • I grow to: I’ll reach 60cms high and 30cms wide.

  • Where to place me: I like shade to part shade outside and shaded position indoors.

  • How far to space me: Give me 30cms of elbow room

  • Soil Conditions: Let me dry out between waterings and mulch my base once a year.
