Goeppertia insignis (Previously known as Calathea lancifolia)

Rattlesnake plant bears long, narrow mid-green leaves edged and spotted in dark green. The undersides of the leaves are a rich purple-red. It has a smaller stature than other varieties. A bold and beautiful houseplant, calathea looks good even without flowers.

Lighting: Grow calathea in medium to low light. This beautiful tropical doesn't like much sun on its leaves, so shield it from direct light to prevent sunburn.

Watering: Water calathea enough to keep it moist, but not wet or saturated. This isn't a drought-tolerant houseplant, but it is relatively forgiving if you forget to water it from time to time. Extended periods of dryness can result in brown leaf tips or edges. 

Humidity: Calathea need abundant humidity. If the air is too dry or the plant dries out too frequently, the leaf edges may turn brown and crispy.
