Light Intensity Description
Bright Light South or southwest-facing windows. Direct sunlight.
Medium Light East or West facing windows. Partial, filtered or indirect sunlight.
Low Light North-facing windows. No more then 20 feet from the window. Bright fluorescent light at least 8-10 hours a day.

Note: if you can’t read a book as it is too dark in a certain areas than it is too dark for any plant as well.

Window direction is not the only factor to understand your light situation. What is outside the window makes a big difference. Another building, large tree, etc. will block direct light and will effect lighting environment.

This plant sparks so much joy!

This is my first ever plant and I couldn't be happier buying it. I wake up each morning with so much joy seeing it by the window! The delivery process was seamless, easy, and prompt. I also appreciate the frequent check-ins from the team. As a budding "plant daddy" (I've began buying more plants since this purchase), I am constantly reassured that I can care for plants with the support from MyCityPlants. The one-pager of tips was concise and helpful.

Woohoo! Happy 'plant daddy' - priceless! Dear Jeremy, It is great to learn that you are happy with your green family and pleased with our service.
