Indoor plants in winter are a good idea for many reasons. They add to air quality, provide a winter hobby, and can lighten your mood.
The key to the success of a system, however, is the right light. Different plants thrive in different light. Buying a plant that will go with your home lighting is possibly the most important thing for indoor plant success.
Bright light: Ideally, find a south-facing window or, alternatively, a west-facing window to get the maximum amount of light.
Bright indirect light: Look near a south or west facing window, but not directly in the rays of the sun.
Medium light: Place the device in a bright room, away from direct sunlight. Think of the opposite side of the room from a south or west facing window – or consider a bright room with an east or large north facing window.
Dimmed light: Ideal for a room facing north or east – or a room with only a small window.
When looking to buy a plant, you think, “Does my house have the right space and lighting for this plant?”
The right place for the right plant helps ensure a healthy plant that you will enjoy for years to come.
