    Capensis: Partly to full sun.

    Filiformis: I would say partly to full sun since mine is in full Florida sun.

    The above is from experience.

    Intermedia: It depends, do you have the tropical or temperate kind?

    Adelae (Lance-leafed): This species supposedly hates direct sunlight. Idk, I've never grown this plant, but they like to divide and are easily propagated by root cuttings.

    Regardless of the type of D. intermedia, it should receive full sun. But the "Cuba" form requires no dormancy.

    Welcome to Terraforums!

    All of them should do fine in full sun, all day long. Unless you want to grow them indoors, in which case you would put some florescent fixtures about them.

    In my experience, Adelae can take lotsa light, or much less light. It's not too picky indoors.

    Intermedia does not depend on if it's tropical or temperate. All these plants love light.

    If you repotted them when you received them (right?), slowly give them more and more light so they can acclimate properly, with no burning.

    For the temperates (filiformis and temperate intermedia), give them significantly less light during the winter cause they go dormant. If you don't already know about dormancy, you should search through these forums for help.

    Oh, and just as a tip, keep D. graminifolia out of heat. It likes cool roots but bright light.

    We all do different things, within reason. Here's what I do:

    binata: Outside in the sun from spring to fall and in a coldish, sunny window for the winter

    capensis: Does very well at window sills all year long, but can go outside for many months

    intermedia: Same as the binata

    filiformis: Same as the binata and intermedia

    graminifolia: Window sill or artificial lighting. Does better when there is a day/night temp differential

    lance leaf: Does just fine in artificial lighting or window sill
