    I decided to move some LR ever so slightly last night and then getting it back the way I had it was like to trying to solve rubick's cube! Now my feather duster is in the shade. Do Feather dusters need direct light?

    Daugherty is right, they usually do better somewhat shaded, in fact.

    They don't need any light but it's good for them to have some current passing them so they can catch small foods.
