Will full sun destroy my plants?
I have been growing amaryllis for only 8 months. Up til now I have kept my 30 or so potted plants outdoors against the northern wall of my house. They have experienced very little direct sunlight. My goal is NOT to have plants that barely hang on. I want to grow my plants in an environment that will produce the healthiest, finest Hippeastrum possible.
1. If I slowly acclimate them to direct sun, would they eventually flourish in the heat of SE Louisiana summers(90-97 degrees)?
2. If not, how many hours of direct sunlight would they prefer per day?
3. How old should my SEEDLINGS be before I subject them to direct sun?
Picotee, Lady Jane, Hercules, Red Lion, Vittatum, Rosario, Apple Blossom, Orange Soveriegn. Amoretta and 5 small red doubles that were supposed to be Papilio
