Hanging balcony plants for magnificent outdoor spaces!
There are actually quite a few plants that are suitable for the balcony conditions. Of course you have to remember what kind of balcony your offers: light, humidity, shade, water supply. If you are clear, you are already ready to select your balcony plants.
Balcony plants are usually annuals that bloom only one summer and can be brought inside in winter. Balcony plants are usually no larger than 60 cm. When it comes to climbing plants, this is the minimum limit. Hanging balcony plants are usually preferred if you want to use them as a natural privacy screen for the balcony. Most balcony plants love sunny and partially shaded locations, but there are also some plants for the balcony, which are also suitable for the shade.
