As you can see from the picture, the jade's new location seems ideal, in a loft space under (south-facing) skylights. And there is natural light bouncing around the room from all four directions. BUT, I've noticed that on full sunny days, bright light hits only the lower half of the plant (because of the position of the skylights and distance of the plant from other windows).
Particularly because the jade came from a single, northern exposure, my thought is that the plant will do well where it is despite the lack of bright light on its upper half. But I'm wondering whether anyone has other opinions. (Putting the plant outside isn't a good option for me). Anyway, here is the picture of the plant in its current location (but in its old pot):
Thanks in advance.
Lobalobo said:Thanks for the response. The skylights are indeed tinted. But the light from the east north and west, though indirect, are through untinted windows, bouncing of white walls, enough to create shadows (as apparent in the photo I posted). As for rotating the plant, yes I do this, but this doesn't solve the height problem. Should I look to move the plant, do you think, or will the abundance of bounced light all day be enough to keep the plant healthy? (Moving the plant would not be an easy fix.)when you mentioned hight problem, do you mean the hight of the light or the plant itself? Indoor jade plants really do need all the direct sunlight they can get to really do well. But they'll reward you for giving them light. The leave bottoms and the edges will turn a beautiful dark red.
