plants plant plants

Guys, I am no plant expert and I have the opposite of a green thumb, but I’m sort of proud that I have kept more than one plant alive! I even snipped off a bud (or whatever that is called) from one plant and repotted it in another container. There have been obstacles though. Aphids have attacked my old basil plant and it seems like my new one has downy mildew. I only know this because I’ve been googling images and reading through forums.

Our balcony is a major eye sore, so I’m hoping to get more plants soon to mask the cage like feel. The hanging planter was easy peasy , and I got the directions from 3191 Quarterly.
