Planning to move to an apartment pretty soon and the plants are coming with me. I was wondering if anyone had any experience with growing plants on a balcony of an apartment and had tips to share. I imagine that it could be windier and harder for the plants to catch bugs naturally this way, but would be interested to hear everyone's thoughts on this. Any pictures of example/recommended set-ups would be great!
This may end up turning into an indoor growing thread if people recommend simply growing indoors instead!
What sort of plants are they? Sarracenia and VFT will do fine in mini bogs on a balcony if there is enough sun. No problem catching prey unless you are ultra high and pitchers can be supported with sticks if necessary, protection over winter shouldnt be too tricky. cheers steve
