Apartments that face south are popular because they are particularly bright. However, not every plant can be found on a south-facing window.
A distinction should be made between a bright location and direct sunlight.
Plants for the latter location must be more robust, as they must be able to withstand several hours of warm sunshine in summer without burning the leaves.
This is not only the case with the following plants;
they even need the sun to thrive.
