Sunlight Exposure: Take note of the sunlight conditions on your balcony. Some plants thrive in full sunlight, while others prefer shade. Understanding the sunlight exposure will help you choose the right plants for your space. Plants like plumeria, bougainvillea and olive tree love the sun so make sure to place them areas that get full sunlight. On the other hand you have plants like the Boston fern, philodendron red Congo, Draco and Fiddle Fig that work well in an area that gets the morning sun.
