This is great info that applies to growing plants on high decks like those on so many walk-out rambler homes. I like to use lots of grasses and fleshier plants along with succulents that stand up to the strong winds and heat. Cannas make a statement but can get tattered leaves.

"And these plants need to be watered frequently -- sometimes as often as three times a day." Are you kidding me? Who has time for that? Add mulch (wood chips, bark nuggets, etc) to cut down on watering and add nutrients). I water about every 3 days and I have 8 container/balcony pots. Normally for most landscaping projects I prefer the biggest chunks of mulch for longevity but I prefer finer mulch for my balcony garden.
