how much light can a janet craig actually tolerate? full sunlight? can't remember and can't find it in my book!

Hi Jiffymouse, they can handle bright indirect light to low light. According to this link: Janet Craig Dracaena

Full sunlight to shade according to this link: Dracaena - Janet Craig

Personally I have two...one grows great in very low light in my livingroom...the other sits in a south facing window with lots of sun, and it is doing equally as well.

Most Janet Craigs, especially those with deep green leaves, are grown for low light use and tend to bleach out in direct sun. Smaller, starter plants can be adapted to direct sun.
