A Great Gift!

I am an Australian mum who's son lives in NYC with his Dutch girlfriend. Finding suitable gifts for birthdays is difficult enough but purchasing and sending from Australia is even more difficult. I usually have problems using my Aussie credit card and have to phone the company. My City Plants have solved all my gift giving problems fom now on. Efficient, easy to order and the plant is beautiful. Thanks My City Plants!

Plant Light Chart
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.
