Increasing the amount of light beyond the need of the bushes leads to a decrease in the elongation of the internodes (the distance between one eye and the other), and it also leads to the wilting and yellowing of the leaves, then their fall.
Also, the lack of the amount of light reaching the bushes leads to elongation of the internodes, wilting and yellowing of the leaves, then softening them, and murraya paniculata become limp (saggy), and may lead to the death of the murraya paniculata.
