Ignoring plants that love or require direct sunlight, my understanding is that generally plants don't like it too much (leading to sunburn) and rather prefer bright indirect or filtered light. I did read though that direct sunlight is acceptable if it's only for a couple of hours a day, e.g. in the morning or evening.
Since my flat is somewhat dark but has some okay south window spots, I was wondering whether direct sunlight in Winter may be "less problematic" than direct sunlight in Summer. Spring is about to begin where I am and right now I'm measuring some 180k Lux (~16700 footcandles) of illuminance on the windowsills.
I'm mainly concerned about my new Monsteras but I also have some Alocasia, Peperomia, Rubber Tree and cuttings that could use some photons.
