Product Overview

Rattlesnake Plant is a unique and stunning houseplant, native to the Amazon rainforest, that is beloved by home gardeners. A dense, compact plant roughly 24” x 24” at maturity, Rattlesnake Plant takes observers’ breath away with its one-of-a-kind foliage. The leaves are long, pointed and very rigid, with ruffled edges and a glossy, almost lacquered surface texture. But what really sets them apart is their coloration: dark purple underneath and bright yellow-green with rows of darker green splotches on top. Coupled with the plant’s tendency to hold the leaves with tips pointed upright, these markings bear an abstract resemblance to a rattlesnake’s tail rattle and give the plant its name. Rattlesnake plant is an excellent addition to any home, a showpiece plant that’s sure to wow you day in, day out with its striking appearance. It prefers bright indirect light and ample humidity, but requires little fertilizer and is a patient grower, minimizing the need for repotting.
