As some of you already know, I have started my nepenthes collection. I would like to ask the experts in the field about light requirements and terminology found in books and common discussion forums:
Peter D'amato mentions the following:
Sunny: plants should be illuminated by the sunrays for most of the day.
Partly sunny: plants should be illuminated by direct sunlight from 2-4 hrs.
Bright shade: plants should not illuminated by sunlight for no more than 2 hours.
When he describes greenhouse light requirements, then he says that a greenhouse should exposed to the sun for most of the day. Does this means that plants that need to be exposed to "partly sunny" conditions won't do well?
What about plants that are in a greenhouse and only receive 3-4 hours of direct sun through a 50% shade cloth?? wouldn't that be partly sunny conditions or bright shade because of the intensity of the light is now diminished due to the shade cloth even though they are receiving the right amount of light??
What is the difference between bright shade and indirect light??.
I would be very grateful if someone can clarify this terminology
