Mine is planted in a large pot and sits in full sun. Its now over 6 foot tall and is quite happy with the arrangements. If I were you I would move it into a sunny spot gradually over several days to acclimate it to the stronger sun. Be sure it doesent get dehydrated but be sure also to not over water or you could drown it.
Also if you have the option(depending on where you live) if possile plant
it in the ground or the largest container you can afford that you can move inside or to a sheltered location if you live where it gets cold. Living in central Florida I dont need to do much protecting of it beyond making sure it doesent dry out completly.
