Original Message Light for houseplants
Quoting Nan: ------------
-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
-quote it for you!
Thanks for the info! I have several
books that I saw the footcandle info
in. I will check with window dealer and
see if they have the specs for that. I
sure don't want all my plants to die.
