    Hi Ian,

    congrats on the blooms. a related question, I see that you have tied the ctsm plants to a fence. is it exposed to direct sun light or is it in shade.?. I have a few of ctsm and I have them in shade..have not grown these before and i thought you might be the best person to answer me.

    this is not the usual place where i cultivate them, i just bring them out for photography session.
    basically they are planted outdoor 24/7, just with a shade of 50% light filtration. they get all the morning sun till about 2pm.
