    I have an amaryllis and the sunburnt fig at the moment. Am hoping to plant some herbs and other things as I've just moved and now have a some balcony space. Need to read up about how and when to change soil and which plant foods to add etc!

    You can grow a lot on a balcony herbs are a good start, many do well in containers. Are you planing on cooking with them? We have some good cooks here.

    Nothing like eating some thing you have grown. The Harvest forum is where a lot of recipes are shared.

    I agree with others, it is sunburn. Personally I would not put it outdoors. It is a house plant. I had a tall one by my glass stained window and a couple of the leaves got sunburn. I found out that stain glass reflects a different light. I've moved it to another bay window and is doing much better. I removed the 2 leaves just because it bothered me but you don't have to do that. Every once in a while, give it a little fertilizer high in nitrogen.
