    How much light do you give yours?

    As much sun as I can give it in my greenhouse. I have a white poly film on the outside, not sure how much light it filters.

    Thanks. I've been told to grow mine in shady conditions and it blooms regularly. I have an extra piece that I might try brighter to see what happens.

    There may be a large difference in the duration and intensity of "bright" light between Eureka and Santa Rosa ;)

    I would agree with Kelly. Most days here start out foggy then turn to sun by midday. In the summer it stays foggy most days.
