Calathea 'ornata' is another really pretty calathea plant with a pastel pinkish white and deep dark 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 ornata 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 'ornata' is a fickle but beautiful plant. It certainly seems to like more shade than sun and more moist/humid than not. Here in South Florida is can grow as tall as 2-3 feet high.
These plants are growing in an 8 inch pot.
