Default Re: low light plants in high light areas?

plants should do more than alright, they should thrive. As long as they aren’t too close to the light (this could burn them). Plants don't care about wattage though, lumens is what they are after, I believe 6000–7000 lumens works best for most plants, do you know the lumens output of your bulb? .. if you're using just an ordinary bulb then it's most likely giving off the wrong spectrum of light. Plants in the vegetative stage prefer the blue light spectrum whereas those flowering prefer the red spectrum. Hope I could help!
