Calathea 'Freddie' is another really pretty calathea plant with a subtle silver green & darker green striped leaf variation. Some calathea's prefer low light while others can take super bright light as long as it's moist and humid environment. In the landscape we use calathea's as understory plants of tree and palm canopy's and in an area that does not get direct sunlight. They grow really well around the edges of a pond or water feature as they get the mist of moving water. Calathea roseopicta likes to grow in indirect or bright light. We plant them under larger tree or plant canopy as a ground cover in areas that are shady and moist. Calathea 'Freddie' is a champ and though I would normally plant this in a shady area, I've had some in the nursery that ended up getting a couple hours of midday South Florida sun and they are doing great!
These plants are super full in an 8 inch pot.
