It would be best if they did not have to deal with afternoon sun but they do need lots of sun through the rest of the day. They can take afternoon sun if the soil is kept moist but not soggy wet. It is difficult to say how much to water. Plant size, container size, container type, growing media type, temperature, etc. all affect how often a container plant needs water. Dig down a few inches and feel the soil. Try to maintain moist conditions which may mean watering daily or every few days depending on the above mentioned factors.
Thanks for the question. Please stop in again soon!
