Without getting too deep into the science, sun-light is a key energy source for all plants

Through a process called photosynthesis, plants absorb energy from the sun, which fuels the processes necessary for survival

Full Sun: A plant requiring full sun needs all the sunlight it can get; at least 6 to 8 hours of direct sun exposure per day

Part Sun: A plant requiring part sun needs 3-6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Many “part sun” plants can also be treated at “full sun” plants

Part Shade: The difference between part sun and part shade can be confusing. Part shade plants prefer 3-6 hours of sunlight

Shade: A shade-loving plant still needs some sunlight, just not a lot of it! These plants prefer less than 3 hours of direct sunlight, but not total darkness

If you’re watering your plant regularly and there doesn’t appear to be any sign of bugs, it might be an issue with sun exposure

A plant that isn’t getting the sunlight it needs will start to turn dull green or yellow, drop leaves, and start growing “leggy” with few, if any, new leaves
