I purchased a colcasia "Illustris" which was marked "Black Magic" in error.
My research showed light requirements were full sun.
After planting in a western exposure - part sun/part shade the top leaves browned out, obviously burnt.
Will the plant acclimate to the location or does it need to be moved to full shade?
Is browning of older leaves normal?

Thank you
