    I have a small humble area to garden in Mexico. Many plants will grow outside, but I want to have a flowering arch inside, to frame a sunny window about 8' tall and 15 - 20' wide. The flowering plants they have in their nurseries are pretty much outdoor only. Can I grow a Jasmine inside? And will it cover half the arch ( 8' tall by 7' across the window?)
    I have never seen one so big.
    Any other ideas for a flowering window frame for inside the house?

    The area is Manzanillo, near Puerta Vallarta. Humidity is high in June - October and dry November - May. Always about 80 degrees farhenheit.

    You can grow Jasmine indoors, but it likes a lot of light (and air circulation, etc.) If possible in the winter, try to keep it in a cooler room for a month or two. You can always use philodendron, pothos or Passiflora (Passion flower) if you want a vining plant for the window, but you'd probably need to raise the humidity a bit for the last one.
