are pretty straight forward as long as you follow the recommended care instructions and

don�t forget to water your plants. But how do you ensure that your indoor plants are

getting enough light? Finding the right location in your home may require some trial and

error before you find the perfect spot.

Before deciding on what type of plants you will have in your house, look into the light

requirements. The four categories that describe the different light requirement for plants

are low, medium, high, and very high. If you have a sunroom or skylights in your home

and can position your plants in or under them you can purchase plants that need high or

very high light exposure. Be aware that some plants can get too much sun, in which case

the light that comes in from a regular window should suffice.

There are options you can utilize if you want a certain type of plant and know that your

house is not going to provide it enough light. You can purchase specially designed grow

bulbs to supplement the amount of light the plant is getting. Be aware of the light

requirements for your plants when choosing this lighting method. Although plants

require a lot of light to grow there is such a thing as too much light too. The exact ratio

for your plant may differ but a good guideline to follow is 14 hours of sunlight to 10

hours of darkness.

Your plants will let you know if they are getting too much or not enough light (either

they will begin to look dry or will become limp). Try different locations in your home to

find the best place for them.
