Normally, there are 3 main levels of indirect light for plants:
- Bright light: direct sunlight
- Medium light: partial, filtered and indirect sunlight
- Low light: minimal light
Direction of the window facing:
- Windows facing south can receive the most direct sunlight.
- Windows facing west get sunlight during mornings at normal medium level. But they do receive about 4 to 6 hours of intense and bright sunlight during the afternoon.
- Windows facing east can provide bright indirect light for most of the day throughout much of the year. However, between late spring and early autumn- they can also receive direct sunlight .
- Windows facing north never have bright, direct sunlight. (so leave a spot for your Gothic plants here!)
Suggestion for solving the bright light problem:
- Move a few feet away from the windows, if you don't like how it looks then place it back next to the window when you get home- it won't be much of an eye-sore when you're at work or outta home when the sun hits the hardest.
- Or cover the window with a sheer curtain to filter the light.
