Planting & Care
2. Watering: The Rattlesnake Plant loves humidity and moist soil, but it will tolerate lower humidity without issue. It’s easy to provide a humid environment by placing your plant in a bathroom, kitchen or near a humidifier. Simply ensure that you regularly mist so that your plant’s soil remains moist. If you’re not sure when to mist your Rattlesnake Plant, just check the soil down to around 2 inches. If the soil is dry, it’s time to mist.
3. Fertilizing: Feed your Rattlesnake Plant once a month during the growing season, from spring to fall, with a diluted solution of low-balanced fertilizer.
You can still order, but due to cold weather, we have delayed shipping to the areas shaded on the map below. We want your new plant to thrive right out of the box, so we will wait on shipping your order until the weather is ideal. This includes anyone in

Customer Reviews & Photos
- rattlesnake plants
I have bought two of them, and they are so different from most of my other plants! The leaves are down in the daytime, but at night they rise up as if to strike! Just a very neat plant!
This was a gift to my friend. I had never seen one before, but it is so green and beautiful that I purchased it for her. She sent pictures of this beautiful plant. In the morning the leaves are opened and a variegated green! At night, the leaves close up, and look like a snake ready to strike! A very unusual plant, and extremely beautiful.
So far so good, I do NOT have a green thumb. But I really like this plant.
Love my plant! Very unique looking houseplant. Arrived as expected, packaging was great! Not a leaf on the plant was broken. Great company to do business with. Will definitely buy from Fast Growing Trees again!
I absolutely love this plant.
