5. Calathea Lancifolia

Calathea lancifolia is a tropical plant you can find originally in the rainforest in Brazil. Its beautiful colors make it stand out in your house. It's even called a Rattle Snake plant because of the striking patterns. Long and narrow, wavery leaves have ruffled edges that are unique to this Calathea species. They are bright green with alternating dark-green markings down each leaf. The underside of the leaves is purple. Of course, they also fold up at night. You already knew it's healthy for your plants to flush the soil? Calathea is one of the plants that doesn't like too much salt in the soil, so calmly let hand warm water flood through the pot and your plant will love it

6. Ctenanthe Oppenheimiana


Ctenanthe oppenheimiana is preferably placed in a bright place in the house, without direct sunlight. This allows the colors to show their best, without the leaves being able to burn. But it does need light for photosynthesis. So make sure the leaves keep clean. Keep the soil slightly moist at all times. However, the plant shouldn't be in soaked soil constantly. Plants of the Calathea family require a higher humidity compared to most other houseplants to grow optimally - otherwise, the edges of the leaves may begin to wither, somewhat negating the wow effect of the leaves. This is one of the 7 green tropicals for Mother's Day 2022 to gift and score.
