Turtle Vine grows grows well in partial sun to partial shade. If the pot is placed at least 50 centimetres behind the window hot summer sun will be tolerated.

During summer a spot in the garden or on the balcony is welcome. There it has to be slowly accustomed to the sun, which is no longer filtered through a window. Allow the soil to nearly dry between the waterings. Water sparingly if placed cool to temperate during winter. Avoid overwatering. Drying out for a short time will be tolerated.
