Are you thinking about starting your vegetable garden at City-Base Vista Apartments? Why not consider growing indoor plants, apartment vegetables, as well as herbs? Gardening is a very relaxing activity, and you don’t need a garden to be a gardener. Instead, perhaps start your journey with an indoor herb planter.
Plants, Vegetables, & Herbs Best for Indoors
Firstly, consider which plants, herbs, or vegetables will yield the fastest harvest. There are several vegetables that you should be able to harvest very quickly.
Spring onions, kale, spinach, arugula, and chard grow to maturity quickly. However, radishes are possibly the type of vegetable that grows the fastest and will reach harvest in as little as three to four weeks.
Why not grow a few tomatoes and baby cucumbers in your indoor garden if you enjoy eating salad. Remember that tomatoes may take anywhere from 60 to 100 days to reach harvest, so they are not the fastest-growing veggies.
Taking Care of Indoor Plants
Key points to take into account when growing plants or vegetables indoors are that all plants need sunlight to survive and thrive. Sunlight helps a plant photosynthesize, which is crucial as the plant draws energy from the sun to convert water and carbon dioxide into sugars known as glucose. Then, the plant feeds off this glucose to stay alive.
The soil conditions need to be ideal, and if the plant grows roots, then there has to be sufficient space in the holder that you will be storing your plants in. Of course, the idea is to grow plants, herbs, and vegetables small enough for an apartment.
