I posted this in the container garden forum and then figured I probably should have put it here....
I am about to close on my new house...Yay!!...and I have a huge sun room that will double as my studio retreat. It's not very economical to try to cool off a room with a large kiln so I wanted to have a tropical theme to all of my plants. Everything will be in containers and I only want one plant per pot. I like clean and simple, so invasive plants may or may not work, depending on how controlable they are. Also, I have lots of pets and a kid so anything poisonus will only be okay if it is a hanging plant. I want a mixture of all kinds (fruits, floral, green, VINES!) so that when one walks in, they feel like they just entered the rain forest. Anybody have any recomendations or advice for this kind of theme??? Please, all responses are greatly appreciated........Oh, and I'm not sure how the humidity level is. I do know the room leaks in heavy rain fall.
