How much is enough light???
This is kind of a complicated question, (I will try to word it so it makes sense). And Denise, please forgive the repeated question, as I have picked your brain on this before. I guess I'm either an idiot or trying to complicate it too much.
From what I've read, most hoyas like bright, indirect light. If the light's too bright it makes the leaves look washed out. Others say they sacrifice the washed out look for flowers. Being, the more light they get the more likely they are to bloom.
When reading about a certain hoya, they say bright, shaded/filtered light. But I'm assuming they're talking about outside b/c they mention the temps must be above 40 degrees.
I realize outdoor light, even shade, is much more intense than indoor light. So when a hoya requires shaded light can they tolerate direct indoor light?
I'm currently growing all of my hoyas in eastern light. It's only direct for an hour or so, but then it's bright for the rest of the day.
My H. wayetti has new growth that's very dark green with a lot of maroon/bronze on the new growth. They all currently have new growth to some extent. None of them are *washed out*, the ones that are supposed to have silver flecks do. Is this a good indication that they are where they need to be?
I do have a spot I can move them to that gets western light, much more direct and stronger light. Should I move them to that location?
I know, *if it ain't broke don't fix it*, but maybe just some maintenence to help them perform better?
What are your thoughts?
