Ease it in to it if it is used to the shade, otherwise it could burn like any other plant that is not acclimatised.

Plant in the pic gets direct sun from 5:45-14:30

average (lack of) humidity around the plant also affects those that burn. looks like you have an ideal situation...

How much full sun does it get? What is it's aspect?

Be careful, one hot day could change everything, and it could easily dry out in a pot too.

first light is 4:45 the trees block the sun till 5:45 then direct sun till 1400. The root system is very strong now, which has made it able to handle the sun, also high humidity during the day. The plant was conditioned naturally ie the position it was in previous season gave it sun from 1h after sunrise till around 1200. As the sun has come around the time in direct sun has slowly increased. Aspect is NE. Also it was 36 degrees when the photo was taken. I guess humidity is very important, as the plant in the pic is only watered twice a week, humidity & love = happy plant.
