The best window in my rental house is the big front one. In fact, it might be the best feature of the whole house!
It lets in lots of light, even on rainy days like today, and there’s plenty of room on the sill for plants.
Since this is a good spot to grow things, Sonia started some plant babies for me with cuttings from her vast houseplant collection.
And so far, I have killed only one (which was an African violet start).
To be fair, my success rate is probably due largely to the abundant light this window provides. None of my other houses have had a good spot to grow plants indoors, and that has probably contributed greatly to my black thumb houseplant problems. 😉
The African Violet would have most likely wanted a more filtered morning light. They can be fussy.
Light is my best friend. I have new solar shades in my kitchen. They are 100 percent better than the old roller shades. Light comes in. Heat stays out. Can still see outside. The rare outside person can’t see in. All the wins.
Do you have a link for these solar shades? I’d love to check them out.

Did you water your African violet by setting it in a bowl or saucer of water? They want to be watered from the bottom.
