Did you know? Variegated plants, or plants with white or light foliage, will almost always require bright light to thrive. The reason for this is because the white foliage does not contain chlorophyll, the essential part of the plant that allows the plant to produce food for itself. Brighter light is essential for these plants so the green foliage can compensate for the chlorophyl lacking white foliage!
