Suddenly putting an Amorph in the sun is a bad idea. They are not sun-loving
plants to begin with, although some do accept a few hours when the leaves
have developed in bright conditions. I don't think your bulbifer will suffer
too much. It is a very strong species and even one of the few able to make a
second leaf after disturbance.
I guess your "hildebrandtii" is probably Am. taurostigma and that is a
species from brighter locations on Madagascar, so that one might be
"pre-adapted" to more light.
