Lots of sun on enclosed pool deck!
Hi all! I'm a newbie at planting, but I just love my plants! My only problem is I'm not sure I'm properly caring for them:( I have a screen pool deck, that is about 30x40, but it gets full sun! I currently have potted plants on the deck--all of which I bought at Lowes & the tags said they were full sun...but on days that it is not raining, they look wilted. Is the Florida sun and the heat from the concrete too much for them? Should I build some little stands to put the pots on so that air can flow under the pots and so that they're not sitting directly on the cement? Or do you suggest a type of plant that will do fine in the heat/sun (they get sun up/sun down light, as the patio faces North to South with very little obstruction from East to West light. Thank you in advance for any help keeping my pool buddies happy and healthy!!!!!
