Which plants to choose

Most garden plants can be grown in an indoor environment. Many possibilities are available to you: flowers, succulents, cacti or herbs (basil, oregano, coriander). However, the reduced space in an apartment needs to be limited to small plants, which do not make long roots. For example many flowers such as roses are available in miniature version, as well as alpine plants, mosses or topiaries. Also think of naturally small plants such as pansies, violets, daisies, primroses, beeches.

How to arrange the plants

Indeed, many plants, including aromatic herbs and tomatoes, can for example be grown on a window sill. Placed there, they will enjoy the light and decorate this space. In addition, 'window farms' are systems of vertical cultivation that hang near windows. These installations allow optimal capture of natural light by plants. Avoid only the proximity of electric plugs or cables; do not risk a watering accident.

Light is probably very important for your plants. Ideally, it should be indirect but sufficient to allow photosynthesis and plant survival. Indeed, even if you have plants put on a window sill, you have to make sure that the sunshine is good. If necessary buy a growth lamp . Be sure to position it near the plant, but not too close to avoid burning the leaves.

Gardening is not an activity reserved only outside

When arranging plants, larger plants should not hide light from smaller ones. Adjust the size and number of pots instead you have. Use your small height space by hanging some plants above the worktop in deco macrame for example. Or, combine the plants on one or more shelves.

How to treat your indoor garden

Your indoor garden will certainly need more frequent watering than an outdoor garden. At home, the earth of the pots dries more quickly. It is recommended to water with water at room temperature and without soaking. There is no need to invest in a watering system or a hydroponic system. Simple pots, a lamp with adequate light spectrum, a reflector equipped with a ballast, a simple timer and a small weather station measuring temperature and humidity may be sufficient.

Concerning the soil, it depends mainly on the species of plants. It will be easier for you to buy special sachets for houseplants in garden centers.
