Indoor Gardening: What You Need to Get Started

Posted on

Indoor gardening is a great way to test out your green thumb, no matter the weather outside. Whether you want to grow plants for beauty, produce you can eat, or a combination of the two, you will need a few basic things before you can get started. 

Containers to Grow In 

You will also need the containers that you’ll grow your plants in. This will depend somewhat on how you plan to grow. If you haven’t already decided if you want to use soil or hydroponics, now is the time, as the latter typically uses specialized containers. If you are growing plants from seeds, consider seedling trays and pots. 

Potting Soil (or Nutrients for Water)

If you decide to go with the traditional route of conducting indoor gardening in soil, you will need to get that soil. Opt for high-quality, organic soil for the best results. If you are opting for indoor gardening in water, you will need a source of fresh water and the liquid nutrients to put in. 

Your Seeds (or Plants)

You will also need whatever you plan to grow, whether that is seeds or established plants. Many gardeners love the sense of accomplishment that comes with growing something from seed to full-grown plant. Others prefer to get a head start and buy seedlings. There are even some produce you can grow from food scraps, such as potatoes or onions. Just remember that depending on the type of food scrap, you may not get a full version of the vegetable. Carrot scraps, for example, only regrow the leafy greens on the top. 

Lighting

You have two options when it comes to lighting your indoor garden. If you are lucky enough to have a sunny spot in your home, this is great. Otherwise, you can invest in garden lights that will mimic the sun’s light.
