Hi everyone, I'm in an apartment in Wolli Creek with a bleak, uninteresting balcony that I would like to turn into a garden.
My main aspect is east so lots of morning sun, but I also have a bit of north through louvres (see pictures).
To soften the two white balcony walls I was considering trying to grow ficus pumila, or creeping fig, to cover them. It's like a tiny miniature ivy, and if it's happy the two walls will end up looking like hedges.
Has anyone had experience growing creeping fig from a pot onto a wall? normally they're planted into the ground (which obviously I can't do).
I'll place some big planter pots around as well, but I really hate these white walls and would love them to "disappear."
happy to hear all opinions!

Cant see an issue. I grew quite a large passionfruit vine to cover a large offensively white wall when i lived in arncliffe. Id recommend getting a trainer that isnt the actual wall/balcony of your building though. You dont need any strata hassles.

I understand SAL has its own electricians on contract to quickly replace at no cost any lights that occasionally fail. This service has given installers confidence in the brand.
