What is the best way to start indoor gardening?
First and foremost, indoor gardening might mean different things to different people, so you should be clear about what you want to plant. Indoor gardening is all about learning about your home’s unique climate or microclimate and then making changes to meet the needs of each plant species. There are so many different ways to grow plants, so the advice you get is so conflicting. It’s better to consider many things before starting.
If you’ve never grown anything indoors before, I recommend starting with a spider plant. Spider plants are low-maintenance, tolerant of neglect, and grow swiftly. They’ll produce “babies” in a relatively short time, which you can use as gifts to loved ones or new plants elsewhere in your home, delivering you with a rapid reward and sense of accomplishment for your work.
Make regular checks on the soil to ensure that your plant receives the proper amount of water. It is the first step, and once you get the hang of it, you’ll be ready to learn about other factors that affect the health and happiness of your indoor plants, which will allow you to care for more sophisticated ones as well as to decide which ones will thrive in your home.
