Know Your Indoor Potted Plants





Even potted houseplants need adequate light.  Consider things like the direction that the sun comes into your home, what kind of overhang your house has, and the shade from trees or buildings.  All of these things - as well as blinds, ultraviolet window protection, and deciduous trees - can change your lighting situation.  To get the right amount of light, however, yo first have to understand the three basic types of potted houseplant lighting needs:

Low-Light Plants:  will do well in a north facing window as they do not require any direct sunlight.  Potted plants can also be placed in the interior of a room with moderate light from eastern, western, or southern exposures.

Medium or Bright Indirect Light Plants:  like an east or a west facing window or should be placed at least 2 feet away from a south facing window.  A western exposure needs to provide indirect light through the morning and early afternoon.  It it receives more intense light and becomes hotter in the afternoon, place the potted plant farther into the room.

High Light Plants:  should be placed in a south facing window that provides the brightest light conditions for the longest time each day or in an unobstructed west facing window that gets up to four to six hours of direct light in the afternoon.  Make sure to check leaves for sun scald, and rotate the flower pots for even plant growth.
