Although the most common is to see them climbing the walls and exterior walls of houses, the truth is that climbing plants can also be grown in pots, so we can also enjoy these specimens on our terraces and balconies.
Thanks to this cultivation, it will be very easy to have your own green corner at home despite having a small space and, in addition, it will allow you to create a beautiful space that will fill your balcony with freshness. We will tell you which are the best-potted climbing plants to have in your home.
Types of potted climbing plants and their cultivation
It is important that you look for a place where they can develop in good conditions: Take into account a favorable climate, that the specimen is in a corner (to be able to develop on both walls) and that the pot in which you place it is sufficiently large to allow your roots to expand comfortably.
In this sense, it is important that you also take into account that the pot of this plant must be changed regularly since with its rapid and continuous growth it will need more space and nutrients in the soil (and therefore also more of it).
Of course, you cannot choose your climbing plants for simple aesthetic tastes or interests, because you must take into account many factors such as the climatic conditions of your area and also the space that will be reserved for the plant.
To have climbing plants in pots in shady areas, specimens such as the Adam, the Potus or the Philoendro , for example, are recommended. On the other hand, in sunny and well-lit areas, the best climbing plants will be fuchsias, bluebells or Cuban jasmine , among others.
Other species that can be potted at home are bignonia, ivy, passionflower, American vine, bougainvillea, sweet pea, honeysuckle.
