Re: konjac and sunlight

Where do you live?

Full sun in the SW is a whole different ballgame than in the NE.

There are many growing conditions that correspond with how much sun you can
give a plant too. Remember that when you are posing such questions to a
listserver like this, you are talking to people all over the world, in many
different climates, all with different growing regimes.
