    Capensis Question:

    Hi, I have a capensis that is growing very well in partial sunlight, but I was wondering if I could put it in full sunlight to make it grow better if I acclimated it? Would it grow better? I know that people who advise not to grow them in full sun, they say filtered sun. So, can I grow them in full sun and see better results?

    Thanks,

    -Dylan

    You can grow them in full sun just fine. I do. D. capensis seems to take just about anything you can throw at them

    I grow alba, red, and "narrow" outside. Red does the best I think, followed by alba. The "narrow" does grow much smaller leaves for some reason.

    They do well whether they are in a window sill or outside or under an artificial light. However, if you have the "All Red" variety, they won't stay or turn red on a window sill and so far mine haven't done so under a fluorescent light. But when I put a plant under the fron tporch, even under less than direct sunlight, within 4 days, the leaves turned red.
