RE: new plant

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.

RE: new plant

should i bring the plant inside for the winter

RE: new plant

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!
