When the sun is too strong, you’ll often see bleached out foliage, and in extreme cases, holes burned straight through leaves. You may even notice the plant leaning away from the window in search of shade.

Before plopping your plants on a bright windowsill, you’ll need to evaluate the mount and intensity of light it prefers. Consider what direction the window faces. Southern and western exposures offer more direct light than eastern and northern facing windows. The type of window you have can also make a difference “Some of the old windows of historic homes don’t have as much UV filtration.
