Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - If you have a condominium in Puerto Vallarta, then you know that part of the appeal of being a homeowner is our indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Most condos have terraces that are designed to integrate your indoor living with your outdoor living and the terrace of your condo will probably be one of the areas in which you spend the greatest amount of time.
With your terrace being one of the most utilized spaces in your Puerto Vallarta home, it's nice to make the most of that space and tropical plants can transform even a small terrace into your own little paradise. Here are some varieties that do very well in our climate.
Called "Jamaica" in Spanish, Hibiscus are not just beautiful flowers to look at, but they are also dried and brewed into one of the most popular drinks in Mexico – Agua de Jamaica (Hibiscus tea).
These gorgeous potted plants produce a large, cup-shaped orange flower, and they love bright light and warm sunshine. One warning, be sure to pull your Hibiscus inside during rainy season storms, as they don't enjoy being over-watered.
Another great choice is the Angel's Trumpet. With lovely trumpet-shaped, delicate blooms, this flowering plant will bring charm to any Puerto Vallarta home. But caution if you have pets – Angel's Trumpet is poisonous when ingested.
Many Puerto Vallarta homeowners like to use their terraces as mini-gardens, growing tomato plants and herbs like basil, cilantro and parsley, which all lend themselves well to our climate – as well as to your dinner table.
