    Since winter, the sun has moved (or Earth has moved....) either way, my plants don't really get direct sunlight in my south facing window anymore. The over-hang is just enough to keep the sun out of the windowsill. It's still bright light, but no direct sunlight. I'm growing venus fly traps, D. capensis, D. cappilaris, D. aliciae, D. madagascariensis "botswana", and D. intermedia. There's no other place in the house for them. Will they be ok without the direct sunlight? Thanks!

    They'll do okay, but especially the VFT's need as much direct sunlight as possible.

    A larger fraction of the high angle summer sunlight is reflected too.
