No way! It reminds me of the first summer I had my first house. I had the most amazing deck that was off my bedroom. It was loaded with planters! I was glad it was overbuilt because I had some serious weight up there.

But the watering was just too much of a chore, even with several self watering planters.

Kudos to you for being able to manage all that! And thank you for sharing

Thanks, Jennifer and J! Jennifer, I watered them with a hose except for every couple of weeks I would use a watering can so I could add some Miracle Grow. So it isn't as overwhelming as it looks. I would try to let the water warm a little bit in the hose so they wouldn't get such a cold shower especially with the succulents and caladium.
