Are you tight on outdoor space or just want that green home aesthetic with alive indoor plants? Whatever the case, I’m going to show you the 5 best and easiest vegetables you can begin growing in your home.
Going to kick this off with a few pointers on what you should take into consideration before beginning your indoor greenhouse,
If you are growing from seeds (which I highly recommend! Lots of fun!), you will need various container sizes and pots throughout their growth. I recommend getting at least 3 different sized pots for best growth practice. You’ll need an itsy bitsy one to start the seed out, or instead just grabbing a seed starter tray. Then as it starts to stem pretty well after 2-3 weeks, it will need to get into a pot at least about 6 inches diameter so the roots can fully expand. Then after about another month, you’ll need to move it to it’s forever-home which should be no smaller than 8-10 inches deep (mostly for plants such as tomatoes and other tall growing vegetables).
You will also need to make sure that any containers you do put your vegetables in, they have drainage holes for water! You definitely don’t want to get root rot early on because the soil doesn’t dry or have anywhere to go besides the bottom of your pot!
It should also be noted that it’s not always wise to take all of the soil from the previous pot to the next, because plants love fresh soil and if there are any harmful bacteria from the previous one, you aren’t bringing it to the next! Of course, throughout the year you definitely need to replace all of the soil in the pot with fresh new soil as well! Your plants will thank you very much for that, trust me!
I also absolutely endorse growth lights because they can play such an important role in plant’s growth from the beginning, especially if you don’t have a lot of natural light getting into your house. You can still grow your plants indoors without them, but they honestly do play a huge role in their growth because without them it might take months for them to fully blossom and produce!
If you can provide your vegetables with 4-6 hours of sunshine a day in your home, then you will have no worries with them thriving and reaching their maximum potential!
