Any plant that can grow in low light grows even better in medium light, so both low and medium light plants appear on this list. To benefit from medium light, a plant should be placed directly in front of a window with a northern exposure, within 1-3 ft. of a window with an eastern exposure, 2-5ft. of a window with a western exposure, and 3-10ft. of a window with a southern exposure. Medium light is an area having between 150-300 ft. candles of light.
