i just received a sans moonshine and was reading the post about the plant getting flowers. do i suppose to keep the plant out of direct sunlight? i have a screened in porch is that ok?

yes. for moonshine the screened poarch will be fine and so will under a shade tree where it will get a little sun and or morning sun. The more light the whiter the leaves. I seen someone say moonshine was flowering and the stalk was within the plant it was at a nursery. I never seen a Sans flower so poorly. But dont quote me on that cuz i just glanced inbetween the leaves and said thats sad and walked on. Now Sans. downsii is a green spiral type maybe a foot high but the bloom stalk is 6 foot or more.

Yes, you should bring it in for the Winter. Most Sans don't like temps much under 55 degrees. Better to be safe than sorry!
