Default Thai black sun requirements?

Hey yíall

So I have a nice Thai black tc that Iíve been slowly upsizing in pots all spring/summer and itís now getting to the point where it needs to go in the ground. Unfortunately the only areas I have left to plant it arenít as sunny, and Iím afraid the pstem will revert back to a plain green if it doesnít get as much sun.

Does anyone here grow Thai black in part shade/ part sun?

Thanks. Yup I think I've read somewhere if shaded out they will get taller to get sun light.

Although it looks bright in the picture, this one is growing in mostly shade. Its bigger than my other one in full sun.

I never had any indication of color change with this plant when growing it.
Outdoors,indoors the plant mostly looked the same.
The plant overwinters well indoors under artificial lighting.

It does show fingerprints pretty good though.

It should be a nice addition to your backyard paradise

Mine grow great in sun up and sundown conditions and also in partial shade. Partial shade just takes alittle longer to get going in the spring.

In this pic it's between 12 and 14 feet of trunk, not counting the tops of leaves. I'd say right now it's about 15+ feet.
