Plant Care Guide:

5. Pruning and Maintenance:

  • Trim any yellowing or damaged leaves to encourage new growth. Gently wipe the leaves with a damp cloth to remove dust and maintain their vibrant appearance.

6. Toxicity:

  • Calathea Lancifolia 'Rattlesnake' is non-toxic and safe for pets and children.

7. Pests:

  • Check for common pests like spider mites or mealybugs regularly. If needed, treat and prevent them with our "Damn Bug! Organic Pesticide." You can find it here.
