The hosta plant likes partial shade to complete shad meaning that it rather be without sunlight than with. This plant also can die off or turn yellow if overwatering occurs. This plant does not need to be watered everyday more like once a week without sunlight.

Easy to maintain and grows rather fast!

I have had no problems getting this guy to put out more leaves. it is a bush plant so it comes out from the center and i eventually want to move him outside. these plants like the shade, and will burn if put in direct light for too much of the day, so it makes a perfect bushing plant on the east side of a house. filtered early morning light, and shade the rest of the day !
