Transform your balcony into a green oasis

Mix and match different types of plants

The first step in creating a green oasis on your balcony is choosing the right plants. Of course, Anthuriums cannot be missed, as they are not only beautiful but also easy to care for. Just make sure not to place them in direct sunlight, as this can cause the leaves to burn. Combine Anthuriums with plants that can withstand direct sunlight, so that you have a plant suitable for every spot on your balcony.

Go vertical

When you think of a green oasis, you imagine being surrounded by greenery, right? Therefore, in the second step, we’re going vertical! Hanging plants are perfect for this, but you can also hang ‘regular’ plants in a plant hanger. Hanging your plants gives you more space on the ground, which is especially nice if you have a small balcony.
