hi....i wondered if a plant requiring full sun will also thrive if the bottom portion is in a fairly shady area but the top half is in full sun....
thanks

Some plants do best with morning sun and not evening sun, while others can be planted in any sun.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌

Depends on what the plant is, can you tell us the name of the plant? That would help us give you more accurate info. Thanks. Thumbs up

By bottom portion- do you mean the roots or the leaves? There are very few plants that want their roots in sun.

If the bottom leaves are shaded the plant will likely grow a little taller and not grow leaves in the areas that are too shaded. So the bottom will look bare, but the plant will otherwise do fine if the top gets enough sun.

Knowing the specific plant will help give more specific answers.
