I've wanted a bird of paradise for quite some time. I always thought the lighting in my kitchen window (a west facing window) was considered "high light"... but now that I'm looking into other peoples videos of their plants, im becoming more aware that my highest lighting is probably closer to medium/low light. Well I realized that after I bought a 3' white bird of paradise, AND a fiddle leaf fig. I posted pictures of my bay window in mid afternoon lighting so you can see. It gets decent morning light but I don't know if this is enough lighting or not. Should I get rid of the tree? Or will it be alright in this spot?

My fig is in front of my west facing living room window so it gets about the same lighting.

That light location is just fine for either plant as long as the windows remain uncovered during the day. Thumbs up
