    yes that is what i plan on doing with it because it will be in my back yard so it needs to be adjusted to the back window anyway and its gets really sunny around noon. I will plan on moving it after christmas to its new spot.

    Okay, you guys are scaring me! Mine / Elgecko's has been on southern-facing window sills since its arrival. The leaves are totally green and dewy, continuing to put out new leaves every week. I dosn't have artificial lighting, so the window sill is all I have. It is on its 7th or 8th leaf. Is it set up for failure?

    If the leaves are dewy, it's probably alright. The leaves will never turn red, at least not in normal light. The dew- producing glands should be reddish if you look carefully at them. This effect is usually most noticeable on new leaves that are still unfurling. The glands on mine are only barely reddish in the mid-winter. I think my plants get just about enough light. Anybody who's ever been to Southern Spain, Morocco, or Portugal will know that the sun there is fierce for most of the year. This species certainly appreciates as much sunlight as it can get
