- There's an easy way to determine your lighting condition:

Take a piece of white paper and hold your hand about 8 inches above the paper

• High Light: If you can clearly see the shadow from your hand and it has some definition

• Medium Light: There is a blurred shadow

• Low Light: No shadow

• Houseplant Options

 

o High Light

-Kalanchoe

-Succulents/Cactus

-Asparagus Fern

o Medium Light

-Orchids

-Bamboo

-Dracaena (some varieties)

o Low Light

• Caring for Houseplant

-Avoid placing in troubled spots – near heat or air conditioning ducts, on TV or radiator or between curtains and a frosty window

    I think this is what many of us assume about outlet mall shopping -- we get rock bottom prices on everything from clothes to housewares on brand names that are either leftovers from last year or this year's overstock. Well, it's not quite like that.
