What is the best amount of sunlight for a plant?

Depends on the plant

What is right for one plant may cook another plant to death. Conversely, a plant may thrive in shade and another will grow spindly and never bloom. Also it depends on your geographic location. Full sun in some areas is much stronger than in others. Really, no generalization can be made, and each plant 's needs decided individually.
