Some opinions and maybe pics?

I should have put this post in the balcony forum, but it seemed kinda slow.... so I thought I would post here since I think that having a balcony garden would constitute having potted plants right? Anyways, I am doing my mother's balcony and was wondering what you guys think and if you could maybe point me to some pictures of others balconies for some ideas. I am planting two different passion plant vines from low long pots on the ground of the balcony and training the vines to grow on a trellis I attached to the front of the balcony. I also have some black trumpet plants. I have more space and plants but I don't really know what else to put on the porch. I would like a jungly or exotic kind of theme and I get direct light on the balcony from about 12 to 3 then a tree blocks most of the light out till about 5 till sunset. Thanks for the help!
