Photosynthesis

Plants absorb light and produce sugar through a process known as photosynthesis. This is their food. Sunlight is everything to a plant, and this should always be at the core of your decisions on care.

Windows amplify the heat

Plants can get scorched and suffer sunburn! Windows can amplify the sun’s heat and may cause irreversible damage if not protected adequately.

Yellowing leaves & stunted growth

Noticing your plants are developing yellow leaves or growing smaller leaves than usual? On some varieties, this is a tell-tale sign there’s too much sunlight! Try exposing your plants less during the day by moving them away from bright, direct sunlight and into a more shady spot.
