Outdoor lighting question

when growing outdoors, for me, I have a location that gets sun from sunup till about 3 pm. Does it need direct sunlight or will it be ok if ends up in the shady area for part of the day. So question is- does it need direct sun all day or not

No, it does not need direct sun all day. And in fact, in some instances, some plants will not like the full intense direct sun for the entire day, especially smaller less developed plants.

thanks. I had hoped non full sun would be fine but had to ask the experts. By the way, I am growing from herme seeds from last grow. hope they are girls.
