Have you seen an Alamunda?
It has pretty bell-shaped yellow flowers.Perfect oval, jewel green leaves with a waxy texture.It’s a climber and one of my favorite plants in my balcony garden.
It’s also one of the first plants I bought.The water and nutrition need of the plant is less and is very easy to care for.

- Place it in the middle.Fill up the pot
- Keep about 2 inches free from the rim of the pot.
You can put a few sticks deep into the pot and make a frame with wire if you are putting this in your roof .or you can let it hug the balcony rails and grow either way it will make you happy.
It blooms throughout most of the year, except in winters when the old leaves need to be trimmed and the plant hibernates.Sun filtering through the leaves is the prettiest picture you will ever see.
