    I believe it gets morning sunlight till noon. I'll pay attention to it more to give exactly amount of time on direct sunlight.

    I grow a few of my cephs outside. I think the weather in San Francisco is not drastically different from the weather in Albany, Western Australia.

    I've been sacrificing a Ceph to the TX sun every year and I've had zero success so far.

    Dried out, eaten by animals, death by flooding rains, ect....have never actually made it to the 2-6 bad weeks in the middle of the summer.

    I thought with the new dog and it actually being a good hunter (she has killed all the bunnies in our area already this year), that would give me a better chance. But 2 weeks of constant rainfall (very odd for the area we live in, flooded out this years Ceph, I had it in the bog so no way to move it inside. Just crown rotted away)

    Thanks gents. I will commit to keeping these plants out all year long. The summer in Tennessee they can survive. It's the winter I am worried about. I put out squat, hummers giant, Brewers red and double ribbed to see which clone does the best. Only time will tell!

    I would think the main concern would be freezing. Would a cold frame be enough to protect the plants?

    That's what I am hoping. I already planned on building a cold frame. For a small amount of heat I have a seedling mat or a old reptile mat I could put underneath hopefully that will be enough to keep them just warm enough
