I have some young epies a friend rooted and sent me in a trade,i will post pictures to show you how well established they are.I think that easier than trying to make your understand with my description of them.

My question is how much sun should I have these plants in? They have been in direct sun since i put them out and they have been going to town growing!! But it's getting time for Georgia summer sun and heat.
Should they be put in partial sun as it gets hotter or just watch them & let them tell me(hoping i will understand their signs before to late) Confused

I also only have an ID on the oxy,if anyone has any idea's about the ID of any other's please let me know!!! :tiphat:

I have my rooting cuttings in part shade. In Florida they burn easily and you won't see the signs until the damage is done. If I were you, I'd put them somewhere that they get morning sun and afternoon shade.

Hey Jelinda - I've seen you on the Hoya forum. I have a few epi's and I keep mine in partial shade, any sun and they burn unless it is the early morning sun. and yes this Florida sun will burn them up alot like your Georgia sun.
