Light

Light from the sun in the form of energy, helps plants to carry out photosynthesis.

“Photo” being the light and “synthesis” being the preparation. Plants use the sun energy to convert, CO2 from the air and the water we irrigate with, into sugars such as “glucose” and a byproduct gas O2, released in the air, which allows us and other animals to breathe.

 

All plants need light. Different houseplants need different intensities of light, to mimic their natural needs in the wild. Some plants can put up with less light than others, which is indicated next to every plant in our plant care section.
