LIGHT

 noun (BRIGHTNESS)

 

Light is vital for plants, it allows them to feed, grow and preserve the beautiful color of their foliage. Every plant requires a different level of lightning. First step would be to think of a spot where the light conditions will suit the variety of you plant.

Don't forget: plants are extremely adaptable, so don't panic if your home doesn't have the exact required conditions.





          In a very luminous room:
          = SOUTH exposure

 

We move our plants away from the windows to prevent them from burning out in the high season.
We position them ideally behind a veil in order to cut them from the direct rays.

However some plants can acclimate very well, like cacti and succulents or large plants
like Beaucarnea and Ficus.

(but never in direct exposure).

 

          In a room with constant sunlight but where the sunrays remain indirect:
          = WEST exposure

 

Exposure near a window (2 meters away) but without direct sunlight will allow them to flourish without risk.

You are lucky, almost all plants will benefit from this exposure: Schefflera, Aloe vera, Maranta leuconeura, Ficus, Peperomia, Aphelandra.
You have a wide range of plants to choose from.

 

          In a room with moderate to normal sunshine, the light illuminates your home
in the morning:
= EAST exposure

 

A luminosity that varies according to the time of day: this can be suitable for most plants.
Mild sun in the morning, the room becomes cooler at the end of the day and remains semi-shaded: prefer plants such as Alocacia, Kentia, Monstera, Philodindron.

 

          In a room with little light:
          = NORTH exposure
          Don't panic!


Positioned in dark spaces such as bathrooms and rooms with minimal natural lighting or where windows are shaded by outdoor trees and obstructions.

Here are the varieties we recommend for a room with not much light: Asplenium, Aspidistra elatior, Fastia, Spathiphyllum, Philendendron, Aphelendra.




TIPS: do not hesitate to turn your plant around once in a while so that every side has light !☝
