This cute baby plant is a Calathea Lancifolia plant also known as a Rattlesnake Plant.
It has upright, lance-shaped leaves with long wavy edges. The leaves are variegated with dark green strokes on a pale green background. The undersides are a burgundy red and velvety to the touch.
It is also known as a rattlesnake plant as the riffles on the edge of the leaf look a bit like the fans on the neck of a rattlesnake. But don't worry - this plant doesn't bite like its name-sake does.
This calathea comes from the hot and humid South American rainforests. This means it will be like a misting on a regular basis.
TIP: grouping your humidity loving plants together will help to help the atmosphere in dry rooms in your home. This can help with things just as dry skin, irritable eyes and respiratory issues.
Place in a light but not a bright spot in your home and keep out of direct sunlight. Make sure it has a good constant temperature.
Check that the top layer of soil is dry but that the lower soil is kept lightly moist. Use collected rainwater or bottled, distilled water without fluoride.
Make sure your Blue Grass is in a pot with drainage holes in its base, if the soil becomes waterlogged, it can be affected by root rot.
