When it comes to plants that will thrive in hot sun, cacti and succulents come to mind first. Most of them are really resistant to bright light, but not only these species will grow well on the southern and southeastern window sills.
one ficus benjamina
This small-leaved ficus is a favorite of many flower growers, because it does not require special care, it grows quickly and looks very decorative. And if varieties with plain leaves are not too demanding on lighting, then variegated (variegated or spotted) should grow in a sunny place. Ultraviolet will make the color of the leaves even more unusual and pronounced.
Putting a pot of ficus on the south window, do not forget that this is a tropical plant. Therefore, regular watering and daily spraying are mandatory for him.
2 indoor jasmine
Curly liana with lush greenery needs the sun. Beautiful fragrant flowers will appear on it only if there is a sufficient level of illumination. However, jasmine is best placed in the southeast or east openings. The scorching southern sun may be too aggressive for him.
Place in the bedroom with caution: a strong aroma can cause headaches. The best place for jasmine is the kitchen or living room.
3 Date palm
This tropical beauty is easy to grow from seed. While the palm tree is small, it has enough space on the windowsill. For an adult plant, you will have to allocate space on the floor next to the window. The direct sun is not just acceptable for a date, but useful. But, as in the case of ficus, the palm tree needs to be regularly sprayed and watered, preventing the soil from drying out and low air humidity.
Another flowering liana that can be grown both on a trellis and in a hanging planter (as an ampelous plant). If the apartment already has tunbergia and it needs to be moved to the south window, it is recommended to accustom it to the sun gradually, at first protecting it from the midday heat. When growing from a seedling, put it in the right place right away — so the flower can adapt to the level of lighting and will feel comfortable.
If your Chinese rose is not blooming, try rearranging it to a south window. Hibiscus need bright light in the morning and afternoon to set buds. And variegated varieties (for example, Cooper’s hibiscus) also need the sun for the beauty of the leaves: under the scorching sun, the crown will acquire an unusual pink hue.
The larger and more magnificent the plant, the faster it evaporates moisture: keep this in mind and water the flower in a timely manner, otherwise the leaves will wither and fall off.
6 indoor maple
Abutilon is the second flowering home tree, reminiscent of the hibiscus described above. Maple loves low temperatures and bright light, which is why it is most often grown in winter gardens. But with proper care, maintenance is also possible in an apartment. The main thing is that there should not be a heating radiator under the windowsill on which the maple pot is placed. Regular watering and spraying are 2 more mandatory items that should not be forgotten.
In conditions of lack of light, the leaves of the anthurium will become smaller, the bush will look loose. With an overabundance, flowers and leaves may begin to burn. Look for a compromise: place it on a bright southeast or south window. In the second case, the state of the flower must be carefully observed and shaded in a timely manner if burns appear.
For other habits, anthurium is similar to ficuses and hibiscuses: it must be provided with high humidity (humidifier or spraying) and regular watering.
