I have my seedlings on the patio under the eave. They don't get direct sun. I am afraid the heavy Florida downpours will beat them to death.
What do your suggest?
Should I,put them in the sun for part of the day, then back in a protected area.

I think that would be a good compromise until they get stronger. Morning sun, I would suggest.

I put mine under a large piece of glass. Propped up on the four corners by tall enough pots, or two chaira.

Sudden downpours will murder babies! If I see a discarded refrigerator, I scrounge the shelves. Strong glass! I've dropped one glass shelf on the deck, and it just bounced! hahaha.

Good idea, Melissa.
I am so afraid because here SW FL we get heavy thunderstorms. Maybe I'll put my babies under the glass patio table. That will give them lots of sun, and protect them from the downpours. We are expecting storms again tonight. Smiling

My Tstorms send rain at a slant. Be sure your babies are under the dry part of the table if that happens to you, too.

They are pretty far under the table. No really heavy thunderstorms in the past few days. Usually in the summer very short very intense rains. Smiling
