Shade Cloth % South Florida

how long during the day will they be getting sun?

are they sun acclimated already?

I have found that they can do very well in full all day sun if you give them a winter to adjust to the sun.

If you are concerned i would start with the least shading, something around 15-30% so that they can get the most of the beneficial light
