Depnds what you mean by very high light !Originally Posted by jenn
Due to the lack of space in the growroom my Phrags are getting less than last year.Now they get between 1500fc/2500fc(last year 2500fc/3000fc).
There is an exception & that is Phrag Tara , it seems to not like this level of light but it may be due to the fact that it is still quite small.
Phrag Tara probably won't appreciate high light--besseae comprises a significant part of its genealogy. Some besseae hybrids seem to tolerate and appreciate good light levels, mostly the primaries (i.e. Eric Young, Dick Clements, etc), but the more advanced breeding I keep more shaded (i.e. Jason Fischer). Maybe as they mature you can step it up but I suspect they'd do better in the shade of the larger sun-loving phrags.
