Hi Jane,

I find that communication regarding growing under light and how much light
to give plants are so varied that it's unsatisfying. If growing under light
is something you'd like to pursue, I would purchase a relatively cheap
light meter for about $30. That will give you a more scientific and
consistent way to work relative to natural sunlight. The edges of shelves
away from the cone of light that Kipp mentioned have much reduced intensity
so they're good spots for growing more shade plants.
