Light provides the necessary energy for plants. It is very important for plant growth and healthy life.
South: Area receives the most light. Plants can be placed far from the window and still receive enough bright light through the day.
East: Area that gets light for short period of time. Plants should not be placed too far from the windows; just a few feet away.
West: Area that gets strong heated light for few hours a day. Plants should be placed away or on the shady side of the windows. It is best to use curtains to create filtered light during mid-day sun if plants are very close to the windows.
North: Area that lacks direct sun and provides the lowest light. Plants should be placed as close to the windows as possible.
