Clivia - shade or part-shade?

Anybody in So.Calif coastal:
Do you have your clivia in total shade, part shade, or?
My neighbor gave me some plants years ago, and I have divided and replanted them numerous times. Some are in part shade, some in fairly heavy shade, but some get quite a bit of sun. They actually do pretty well.
Just curious what others' experiences have been.

Boo-hoo - replying to myself. Any clivia experience out there in varied sun-shade situations?
TIA

Here in the SF Bay Area, I've found that clivia does best in open shade with as much light as possible. Too much sun and the plant starts to yellow and not do well. Watch out for snails.

I've got the same question and I'm having trouble finding answers. I found a nice Clivia growing in a shade house locally about a mile inland from the coast. In Dana Point I see some growing in strong light on east walls of h ouses in shade that I'd suggest was "partial"... that is no direct sun. But I've also seen some which bloomed profusely at the NE corder of a gate/wal l with what seems pretty strong exposure to sun until at least noon. In thi s array, it seems that those in the sun bloom a week or two earlier than th ose in the fuller shade (though strong light).

I am reluctant to pull up so many plants, but a few seasons have convinced me that the strong So.Cal. light makes the Clivia "burn" and fade sooner th an those in part shade.
I got a few plants originally as gift from a neighbor, now departed. As any one who as grown Clivia knows, you can divide and divide and divide over ti me. I don't have much available shade space, so not sure what to do. Live with quickly-deteriorated blooms for the sake of beautiful "strap-like" fo liage the rest of the year...Sigh...
