Where to put your house plants

If you have bought plants that require direct light, it is recommended that you position them on a window ledge facing north or west. However, you may need to shade the plant from the midday sun at the height of the summer, and check that the leaves aren’t being burnt by the sun’s heat. If they begin to wither, move your plants away from the window.

For plants that need bright light, you should choose a west-facing window perhaps even shaded by sheer curtains. Failing that, you can place these particular plants on an east-facing window ledge too.

If your plants prefer to be kept in the shade, you can choose any shaded corner of a bright room or even a couple of metres away from south-facing windows.

If you have a room that is particularly sun drenched and benefits from long hours of sunlight throughout the day, you may want to invest in succulents. Jade plants and aloe vera only need to be watered sparingly and are incredibly easy to look after. Likewise, the snake plant is very low maintenance so you can have a great looking room without the hard work!
