What tropical plants are full sun?
Considering this, do tropical plants need direct sunlight?
Tropical plants make excellent houseplants because many of them can easily adapt to growing indoors. Many of these plants come from tropical forests where they live under the shade of large trees. That means they don't need a lot of light, which is perfect since most of us don't have a lot of sun in our homes anyway.
Furthermore, do Cordylines need full sun? Most Cordyline plant varieties grow best in a neutral to alkaline soil ranging from 6.5 to 8.0 on the pH scale. Cordyline fruticosa: Part shade to full shade. Morning sun with afternoon shade is fine. Cordyline australis: Full sun to part shade.
Accordingly, what palms will grow in full sun?
