You must have tried all kinds of ways to decorate your home, but you still feel it lacks of a little life and vitality. So you should bring some lovely mini indoor plants into your interior. Indoor greenery is a kind of positive energy that is good for your mood and health. They can be anywhere of your home like bedroom, living room or kitchen, let alone the balcony.
Creating a successful indoor garden relies heavily on selecting a space indoors that will help your plants to grow. Choose an area that has lots of windows and sunlight; typically east and west facing windows are the best. When at all possible, place your garden (container or hydroponic) near a window to allow for more heat and sunlight.
When gardening indoors, there are two general styles of gardening: container gardening, and hydroponic (also called aquaponic) gardening. Container gardening is just as it sounds - a series of planters/containers that use traditional gardening soil and methods to grow your plants. A hydroponic garden is a special type of indoor garden that uses fertilized water (sometimes with live fish) and a non-soil starter for your plants, arranged vertically. Each is a valuable option for different reasons:
- Container gardens are a good option for someone who may want to rearrange their plants or eventually move them outdoors. Container gardens can grow any type of plant, in any size.
- Hydroponic gardens are a good option for someone who is looking to produce a lot of plants in a small amount of space. Typically, hydroponic gardens are used for growing vegetables.
