    Depnds what you mean by very high light !
    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.
