Sun/shade- growing morning glory
Hi, I've started growing morning glory indoors. I am planning to transport the box out on my balcony when it gets a bit warmer. The seedlings are already growing taller in it. I know they need full sun but can a box be in almost full shade while the leaves are crawling up on the trellis and will get full sun exposure?
Sun drives photosynthesis which allows morning glory to grow quickly. It will languish and sulk while in shade. There are degrees of shade, however. Deep dark shade is a problem. Bright shade, meaning no direct sunlight but lots of ambient light, may be OK temporarily. I would not be surprised if the lower leaves yellowed and dropped after several weeks in shade.
