Title: Enhancing Your Lanai, Balcony, or Patio with Container Plants

Abstract: The environment of a lanai or an apartment balcony is generally not hospitable for plants. Winds dry the soil and dehydrate the foliage. The sun heats the pot, medium, and plant, causing poor root development, water loss, and stress on the photosynthetic factory. Soil microorganisms are also affected and exist at low populations. However, if plant selection and maintenance are done with proper forethought and care, länai plants can enhance the outdoor environment.
