Many houseplants are native to jungle or forest conditions, growing on the ground or as epiphytes beneath the tree canopy. They’re therefore used to low light levels and will thrive in a shady spot in the house. Direct sunlight can do more harm than good for these plants, which may suffer from leaf scorch or wilting if in the wrong position.
