Parlor Palm, Spider Plant, ZZ Plant, and Mother in Laws Tongue. will a couple hours of direct afternoon sun hurt them?

No problema.

RE: Light good enough for these

probably fine. try it out and adjust if you're concerned.

RE: Light good enough for these

Keep a close eye on the palm, mine hates any direct sun and it burns right up.

I was going to say the same thing as Christine. If there's any problems, it would be with the palm. I might put the Sans in the 'first row' by the window, kinda looks like it's behind the spider.

Interesting pic, I love how only the shapes of the plants are very visible. When I'm sitting on my front porch, I'm always looking at the backs of a lot of leaves, and if it's really bright, just the shapes like in your pic.

Are these all new acquisitions?

RE: Light good enough for these

Cactus first glace your photo reminded me of a silhouette. :)

I agree w/Purple about placing Sans closer to window.

Which direction does the window face?

Your plant window is very nice-looking. Toni
