Can I safely attach strings for supporting morning glory vines to the aluminum siding ceiling/soffit of my balcony? Answered
My apartment building has aluminum siding, which extends to the underside of the roof over my balcony. I want to train morning glories to climb up strings leading up from their pots to the balcony's "ceiling," but I need to know if i can attach hooks to the aluminum "siding" that forms the soffit of the roof overhang.
If so, does anyone know what kind of hooks (and where I might find them), and whether they could support the 10-20? pounds of tension that the strings & vines would put on them?
(Apparently, I also need to know whether it's called a "ceiling" when it's outdoors, and what to call "siding when it's on an outdoor ceiling/soffit. :)
