Will Gloxinia thrive in a partly sunny location outdoors?

Gloxinia is a tender houseplant that will not survive the winter in your climate. But if you are asking if you can put your potted Gloxinia outside for the summer, the answer is yes, but in a lightly shaded spot. The intensity of outdoor light is much greater than that of even a sunny indoor window, so I'd be wary of putting the gloxinia where it got direct sun. You could try it in a spot with morning sun; if the leaves begin to look bleached, move it to a shadier location.
