    I have a large planter inside my lanai but have not been able to keep a small tree or shrub free of mealy mites, aphids, etc. I have tried small palms, plumerias, and numerous blooming shrubs to no avail even with careful spraying and cleaning. Does anyone know of a bug resistant plant I can use? Thank you for any help you can provide

    I planted Datura outside my lanai in Zone 9B and it grew big and gave us privacy from the neighbors but now the roots are huge and growing under the base of the lanai . We need privacy and I had smaller roots Buttercup but I think they also as well as Hibiscus growing and making huge holes under my Lanai patio.. What can I plant ? We put sand in the holes that can be up to three feet under my lanai but I don't know if this is strong enough to protect the cement from caving or the dirt from eroding

    Alice, I see that you have some plants hanging from brackets on the pool screen uprights. I'd been wondering if it was OK to do that. Have you experienced any issues from the weight of the plants on those brackets?

    Hi Debra. No I have had no issues. They have been hanging there with baskets for 5 years just make sure you use screws that don't rust. Stainless steel. Good luck
