Crypts can tolerate weak lighting... true. Crypts can benefit from stronger
lighting... true. But not all crypts enjoy the same degree of lighting as
other plants. For this reason, commercial growers have to control the
amount of natural light they give crypts.... some more than others. This is
despite the VERY rich substrates that they use.
