This is the most amount of light in our lighting categories. Plants in this category would like at least some of their day spent with full sunshine. Southern exposure, close to the window where the rays of sun cast a crisp shadow, is a perfect example of direct light. Desert plants want plenty of light and are used to not being shaded. Plants in our direct light category may also be happy with bright indirect light most of the day and direct for part, so be sure to read each plant description for more details.
