How can I tell if my indoor plants get enough light?

Light Requirements

Most indoor plants have surprisingly high light requirements, needing up to 16 hours of light a day. To see if your plants' light requirements are being met, hold your hand over a plant on a sunny day. If you don't see a shadow, move the plant closer to a window. However, don't let plants touch the window because cold windows can give leaves frostbite; hot glass can sizzle a leaf tip.
