thanks.. I have read that the light levels in the shade on a sunny day (especially in Australian summer) can be many fold greater (100x?) than indoor light even with a window open.
lol....Your absolutely spot on, That is easily true [And not because of the gorgeous big Aussie summer sky-Been there done that
Plants see the 'brightest room in the house' as practically darkness.
Light intensity reduces massively
over a very short distance.
The technical geek way to put it is generally: The reduction in light intensity is equal to the square of the distance.
Which simply means that if you have a tree 1' away from the equivalent of 1000 lumens and then you double the distance to 2' you now have only the equivalent of 250 lumens. this number drops even more dramatically as the distance grows. 6' of distance and less than 28
lumens reach the tree. I know this is a bit off your original post but It's frustrating to hear people who put their indoor tree 5' away from the window for fear of the :shudder:
direct sun when most likely it is the lack of humidity that is slowing it down [And it could really use the sunlight too. I accept there may be temperature issues with some species.]
Of course ...When it is a deciduous tree or a juni inside [Or Anything
that needs a dormancy... not much at all helps....]
Anyone heard of a Wollemi? I have one which is outside at the moment. *fascinating* plant..
Wollemi Pines have become available on our shores in the last mmm...two years or so, I should say I think they are available... I know some retailers have had them for a while. Pretty interesting plant indeed.
BTW...Even though It is too late there due to the time difference [And even though it hasn't happened here yet...I will say it anyway...]
Happy Australia Day Mate!:!:
Grab a slab and go make Don Bradman proud with a few bowls [It's not the MCG but go for the century anyway
