With the pandemic happening around the world, everyone is looking for a productive hobby and gardening is one of the most common things that come to mind. However, not everybody has the space to start a garden.
Here comes indoor gardening.
It may sound easy but indoor gardening isn’t that simple. There are several things that should be considered before starting an indoor garden. We have listed some of these below.
Not All Plants are for Indoor Gardening
Do your research. Not all plants can survive indoors. There are plants that require full sunlight and there are those that will do just fine with hardly any sunlight. Be responsible enough to do your own research or ask a professional what plants you can grow indoors. Your local nursery can help you choose what plants to grow indoors.
Use Proper Containers
For indoor plants, plant pots and planters are essential. Find a quality container with good drainage for your plants. Make sure you find something that matches your interior.
Consider Proper Positioning
Look for a place where your plants can get some sunlight. Placing succulents and cacti near a window with consistent sunlight is a great option. These types of plants need continuous, daily sunlight. While Philodendron is a type of plant that can survive where light is dimmer. As we have said, do your research.
Proper Care for Indoor Plants
