The paper analyzed the resistance of tropical and subtropical plants cultivated in the winter garden of the Russian Research Institute of Floriculture and Subtropical Crops to low light conditions. The collection consists of 39 families, 70 genera and 120 plant species (including cultivars and forms). The plants are divided into three groups according to their need for insolation: shade-loving, shade-tolerant and light-loving. Based on daily multi-year measurements using a luxmeter, a graph of changes in the light intensity in the winter garden during a year was made. Species that are most adapted to low light conditions are identifid.
