High Light Plants

Indoor plants from Strader’s greenhouse are beautiful additions to your home or office.

Let us help you select the right plant for your high-sunlight area.

High light plants require direct or strong indirect sunlight for most of the day. If you have questions about spaces you are considering for house plants, ask your Strader’s specialist for some thoughts and advice.

Here are some of our most popular High Light Plants:


This plant has gorgeous multi-colored foliage – probably because it’s a native of the tropics! It loves humidity and requires proper watering to thrive. A Croton can be a bit tricky as an indoor plant in Ohio because it requires direct or strong indirect light, but is sensitive to cold drafts from doors or windows, and doesn’t like warm air from a heater blowing on it – a common problem for many indoor plants.

There are many types of Croton plants to choose from. Come see our selection or check our full plant inventory below.


The Ficus is an outstanding indoor tree, capable of growing to ceiling height if given enough sunlight. The leaves will burn if in direct light, but placing a Ficus next to a sunny window will make it very happy. They need well-drained soil kept moist, and need to avoid cold drafts.

We carry many varieties of Ficus, including Fiddle Leaf Fig known as Ficus Lyrata, Ficus Elastica, or Rubber Tree Ficus, Ficus Benjimina, or Weeping Fig Ficus and many more.


There are lots of fun varieties of succulents, and we carry many of them! They typically require bright indirect light for about half the day, but too much direct sun burns the leaves. When planting succulents, use soil that drains quickly, and when watering, soak the plant thoroughly and let it dry out completely between waterings.

Common types of succulents our customers ask for are Burros Tail, String of Pearls and Aloe plants. Other popular types we carry are Crown of Thorns, Flaming Katy, Jade Plant, Roseum and Zebra Plant.

Proper watering is very important with cacti. Water your cacti well, then let excess water drain out of their pot. Water them more when they are actively growing, typically during warmer weather, and water very little during their dormant season when it’s cold out.

Cacti have special needs for soil and nutrition, so don’t forget the cactus soil and fertilizer these beautiful, unusual plants require. If you have any questions at all, our staff is there to help!
