They will grow faster. A more accurate name for low light plants is "Low light tolerant"

Higher light would only be a problem if you don't monitor your plant health and nutrient deficiency signs. Photosynthesis will increase and you will more than likely need to counterbalance with nutrients.

Here are some signs that a plant is getting too much sun:

Flower petals are dry.

Edges of the leaves look burnt and dry.

Flower color is faded or worn.

All the plant begins to weaken and decay.

And here there are signs that a plant is not getting enough light:

Growth is limited.

The stems are thin and lanky.

The distance between the leaves, which are connected to the drift, is very broad.

See fewer flower buds and, therefore, fewer flowers.

All the plant leans toward light sources.

Some find the right location for a plant involves trial and error - you are aware that the roses as a full day of sun, but you really want Bush to go in the corner that afternoon shade. Give the place a try. If the plant is happy, you can always go to a better place.
