Plant Biography

The Calathea Rattlesnake is native to Brazil. They are mostly found in tropical rain forest growing under the canopies of trees. Calatheas in general need lots of shade and well draining soil. Brazilian natives use their leaves to craft containers usually to hold their rice crop. They are a slow growing plant but in their natural habitat they can grow up to 3 feet tall.

Great plant!!

We love this plant. Didn't realize it closes at night, really cool trait.

Texas freeze killed my plants

I ordered four plants from you at the wrong time. I live in Texas and we had the worst weather freeze in 30 years when it was time for my plants to travel to me. Because of the bad travel conditions my order got stuck in Fort Worth Texas for over a week in below freezing conditions. When my order finally did arrive to me they were literally still frozen. This is at no fault to the greenhouse. When I ordered the plants the weather for the week was not going to be below 40 degrees but Texas being Texas changed that up on me. I have tried to email the greenhouse about it twice now but they come back to me undelivered. When I received my package the plants were packed with such care. It was just the fault of the very rare week and a half long Texas freeze that those plants died. The soil of the plants had ice crystals in them. I would have waited to order if I would have know about the change of weather we were getting here at that time. Even if I would have gotten the heat pack added to my order I don’t believe it would have helped in the long run. So this is no way a bad review of the greenhouse. The weather was out of all of our hands. Thank you.


Plants arrived well packaged and beautiful!!!
