From my idea of building some lattice work and standing it behind my window unit AC.. I am thinking of training a vine of some kind to go up it to help with shade and privacy..
My first thought was to just seed some morning glory, grapes or something like that..
but, I have this ivy in the house that I got from one clipping about a year ago that I have literally put every where.
it grows quickly.. quite common.. and doesnt take a lot of extra care.
But, I dont know how well it will do outside.
When I type in keywords like household ivy, common ivy.. ec.. I dont find this exact plant. It isnt RARE.. I just cant find it.
Anyone know if it is a good idea to put this outside-
The balcony gets pretty hot in the summer because it is dark wood.
It gets a lot of straight sunshine all day.. if not 99% of the day . I tis south facing and the over hang of the building only supplies a few short minutes of shade each morning and evening.
There IS room to put it back into shade if need be, and then it will only get direct evening sun for about 3 hours.
