Joshan Welcome to the forum. May I ask where you live and do you know your grow zone? That way we can know the weather conditions and how it is grown. Have you had these under grow lights or are they new to you?

Greetings @joshan, welcome to NGA!

Lovely adenium trees, and I really like your bonsai. Lovey dubby

Where you live in the global hemisphere would be helpful to know, and also which direction your balcony is facing: north, south, east or west?

That said though, as long as your plants are getting a minimum of 4 hours direct sunlight and lots of bright light, they should do quite well on a balcony. I think @Gerris2 grows his plants on a balcony and could give you more informed information.

Thanks @ crystalview & rainbow
I'm in Chennai, it was in terrace for past 1 yr.
but children in apartment damaging the plant.
so i decided to place it in balcony.

But, balcony was facing towards south. it wont have sunlight , not even a minute. but it ll be very bright through out the day.
will they survive ? bloom ? give flower..?
:confused: a lot.

@joshan I found latitude and climate information for Chennai, India. We have just about the same latitude, but it is warmer there than here on our island. During the summer your balcony will not get any direct sunlight if it is receded or has another balcony or ceiling over it. At any other time of the year your balcony will receive sunlight.

If your apartment has an east or west facing window you could place your plants in the house by the window where the sunlight comes in. If not, then you might consider electric grow-lights for your plants. In order to survive and grow, plants must get some direct light.
