Original Message Check sellers specs
Quoting Leslie: ------------
-We are getting new windows. We were
-told if we get low-e coating on the
-windows all my houseplants would die.
-Does anyone know if this is true? Does
-anyone have low-e glass & houseplants?
Leslie: This one's definitely 'way
'bove my head! But...the seller's of
the windows should have spec sheets on
them....somewhere on there I would
think they'd list the amount/number of
footcandles of light that these new
windows emit....most houseplant books
give recommedations of the
amount/number of footcandles of light
recommended for 'most' plants. This
might be the long way to find out, but
at least a way! If you can't find a
book with the recommended footcandle
info, I have one, and would be happy to
quote it for you!
