i tried to move two indoor plants outside, on either side of the front door. a parlor palm and a variegated umbrella tree that now seem to be deteriorating. this site gets a lot of direct sunlight in the afternoon. i keep finding conflicting information online about the amount of light these guys can tolerate. what do you all think, are they just having an adjustment period (as some plants do) or will they continue to degrade?
also can anyone recommend tallish plants that do well in pots and lots of direct sun? i'd like to bring them in during winter if possible.
