I think this must depend a lot on just where you are....sun being
hotter the farther south you go (in the northern hemisphere)

After I read one post about them needing shade, I got a bit nervous
as mine are in what passes for sun here - nothing overhead and direct
sun for about 2 or 3 hours a day and seem quite happy.  The ones that
I had at the edge of the covered walk, only getting some morning
rays, were leaning toward the light, so I moved them to the "sun"
position and they are doing fine - no scorch.  I do think making sure
they have plenty of water is important if they are getting sun - I am
speaking of plants in pots - drying out will also scorch leaf edges.

>  I am also very currious about mow much sun is required for these
guys... It seems like I am hearing anywhere from deep shade to an
entire day of direct sun.. I do understand that it will depend on the
variety. I know that bulbifer is more sensative to sun than konjac
>  What I would like to know is what is the optimal.. Mine are
currently getting 2.5 to 3 hours of full direct sun now with no signs
at all of scorching... is this enough for good tuber growth ?
