Hi! I live in NYC on the 11th floor of an apartment. My place has a staircase that faces south and halfway up the staircase there is a sitting area. The sitting area is exposed ~160 degrees of windows (facing south). I want to fill it with plants that will give some liveliness to the place. During the summer it gets pretty hot in that area. If I had to guess I would say around 8-12 hours of sunlight. most of which is direct on a sunny day. Please let me know what kind of plants would thrive in this area. I have zero experience taking care of plants.

If this area does not get cold, then I would say that you could plant just about anything that is tropical. Native plants will not do well here because they will need a cold period to thrive.

You might try your hand at citrus, or other fruits that will not usually do well in your area.
