High Water Needs
Zig Zag Iris can tolerate and grow in low light and shady areas which means it prefers about 2 hours of diffused natural light. Remember, low light does not mean NO light! All plants need light to survive, some more than others.
When plants like Zig Zag Iris grow in low light or shady areas, you will want to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight unless direct sun is specified as a light need for the plant. In which case it can tolerate a wide range of low light to direct sun conditions and is very forgiving!
If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Zig Zag Iris in a shady area.Zig Zag Iris is a great option for shade gardens or underneath trees or near fence lines that provide cover from bright sunlight.
If growing indoors, you can grow this type of plant in a lot of different areas of your house. The only thing to keep in mind is that you will want to avoid direct sunlight (unless specified) for Zig Zag Iris. This means if you are growing near a South-facing window, make sure to place it a few feet away from the window. South-facing windows receive the most amount of bright, indirect and direct light a day.

☀️ Light - Direct Sun OR Diffused Light
Direct Sunlight (Full Sun)
Zig Zag Iris thrives best in direct sunlight or full sun meaning that it loves at least 6-8 hours of bright direct light.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Zig Zag Iris in an area that receives sunlight throughout the day. If growing indoors, place near a South-facing window for ideal conditions. South-facing windows receive the most amount of direct light everyday.
Bright Indirect Light or Partial Sun
Zig Zag Iris can grow in bright indirect light which means it prefers at least 4-6 hours of diffused natural light (ideally 6 hours).
Growing Outdoors
When plants thrive in bright, indirect light only this means that you will want to avoid exposing them to direct sunlight unlessZig Zag Iris is also explicitly noted to tolerate direct sunlight.

If growing outdoors, you will want to plant Zig Zag Iris in an area that receives morning sunlight that's not too harsh and afternoon shade for most natural light. You can consider East facing portions of your garden as those get more morning sun.
Growing Indoors
If growing indoors, you can place near an East-facing window that will receive morning sun for half of the day and afternoon shade. You can also consider placing a few feet away from a South-facing window for diffused light. However, be careful about placing in direct sunlight of a South-facing window as that can cause leaf gscorch and affect growth. You can always diffuse the harsh light of a South-facing window by using a sheer curtain.
