comment What climbing plant can I grow on my balcony that's not poisonous to cats?
Maybe it's just my cat but I find she doesn't play or even rub up against poisonous plants, I have quite a lot of plants in and around my house.

comment What are the best conditions for basil?
Don't forget to pick the larger leaves first, allowing the smaller ones to grow. Along with pinching the flowers and not watering later in the day this will help you get the most out of your basil.

comment What are these trees in the front of the picture?
Looks like a palm tree. There are quite a number of palms trebrown.com/palms_arecaceae.php. Perhaps you can get a picture closer up showing it's fruits or flowers...

comment Chilli sprouts are too close together. Should I start culling them?
@itsmatt makes a good point, if you are only interested in 1 -2 then make sure you select the largest healthiest looking seedlings, they usually go on to make the best plants.

comment What are the names of these two succulent plants?
'It is considered an invasive species' that depends on where you live. It is native to my country (South Africa) and we call them sour figs and make jam from the dried 'fruits' that form after the flower. Invasive species is a relative term ;)

comment Why does my Passion Fruit Creeper grow best in autumn and early winter?
Ah that could be the reason. I notice that in mid summer some plants don't grow as well as in spring autumn and it's probably that the sun is too strong at that time.

comment How much lighting do I need for growing lettuce using indoor hydroponics?
@BRM if you use 80 watt compact fluorescent light (CFL) you don't need a ballast just plug it in normal fitting. From personal experience I know these lights work well with lettuce and basil. In my answer there is a link, you can pick up a CFL for like $30.
