ah ha - i think i've got it!  the sun  moves  around them if  they stay in 
one place.  if you move  them - and i guess you have to keep moving them, 
the sun on them wouldn't be even???

Hi Robin,
Probably the best known example of sun tracking (phototropism) in plants is 
Helianthus spp. Here I have also seen it in A. belladonna. However, if you 
are a cactus and planted during the sunniest, warmest time of year here, you 
would experience enormous sunburn damage. In the better nurseries, cacti are 
almost always marked on their south side.
