AKA – I have no idea why this is happening…
This is the lemon plant that lives in the bathroom. It’s on a window ledge that faces East. So only gets direct light in the morning and indirect light all the rest of the day.
These two are in the the kitchen, south facing and gets direct sunlight through the hottest part of the day between about 10am and 6pm but no real indirect light at all.
Both plants are watered and fed at the same time and have the same medium. Obviously the one in the bathroom is doing FAR better, maybe its the lack of strong direct light, early light is not as strong as the light from midday onward, and abundance of indirect light that does it. I don’t think it’s the fact that bathrooms tend to have more moisture because we have an extractor fan in both the bathroom and kitchen that is permanently on. So other than shower time it doesn’t get that wet. The kitchen gets just as much moisture in the air when I am cooking… Swings and roundabouts there, I’m thinking.
I’m considering moving one of the kitchen plants to my computer room which is north facing but is also quite light with indirect light filtered through from the kitchen. The only issue is that this room is much cooler than the others.
Funny thing though. The one on the right in the kitchen has no spines, but is darker in leaf… The other two are lighter in leaf colour and have spines… Connection?
Answers on a postcard, please!
P.S. I’m thinking that I am going to have to repot that one in the bathroom soon. It’s starting to get a bit top heavy. I’m thinking that will give that one a boost that the other two won’t get. I swear it feels like I’m playing ‘Favourite child’! B-)
