I found that mine didn't like ANY sun. And I don't know how they cope with the high temperatures. Does it get that hot around the shady side of your place? I grow mine in the garden all year round, grows like mad from late spring onwards and has buds coming up now. It is summer here now of course. Day temperatures around 20C. But I have had to make sure it is protected from all sun except a bit late in the afternoon. I planted 2 Feijoa bushes and standardised them so when they are a bit bigger they will do the job of shading the Scadoxus. At this stage I still have a piece of shadecloth between the Feijoas. https://picasaweb.google.com/102349754034616089606… Ina On 10/01/2012 1:28 p.m., Leo A.
