Helpful Tips In Growing Vegetables Indoors

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 180

In today's modern generation, with the advancement of technology, where even foods are being processed, most of us still want to enjoy fresh salads on our dining tables. However, most of the vegetables sold in the market underwent certain processing which lessens its quality. Furthermore, because of the use of modern farming tools and products, vegetables have become rather expensive. So what is the solution in this?

There is now a better way for all vegetarians to enjoy a fresh and free salad in the comfort of their homes. The solution to this dilemma is growing vegetables indoors. Let's get started!

Tip # 1: Plan it out Think about what kind of indoor garden you want. If you want to opt for a beautiful vegetable garden, you can choose a dish garden. If you want the more convenient type, you can simply grow your vegetables and pots. The choice is really up to you. What's important is, make sure that you choose what's more convenient and less costly for you. Also, start small. For a start, build a small indoor vegetable garden. This way you won't have problems managing your garden. Next, choose the kind of vegetables you want. The secret is making sure you choose the ones which are good for your environment and climate.

Tip # 2: Give it a Shower Growing vegetables indoor is less demanding than outdoor gardening when it comes to water usage. Just make sure you provide the right amount of water that your plants need. Also, take note of the drainage system. Taking all of these into mind will avoid you from overwatering your plants and messing up your garden.

Tip # 3: Pollinate it Outdoors, plants are pollinated by insects and wind. Indoors, you have to do the job by yourself. The most effective way to pollinate your plants is to use your hands or a brush. For other vegetable types where pollination happens inside the flower like tomatoes, simple shake it up or fan it with a small electric fan. This may take time and process but your vegetables will surely pollinate at its best.

Tip # 4: Light it up Plants need a good lighting system to survive. Since you are growing your plants indoors, they may not be getting the right amount of sunlight. Therefore, the solution to this is proper positioning. Make sure you position you vegetables in a place where sun is accessible. If it's the cold season and there's no sun at all, you can use lighting systems to give your plants the light it needs. Just make sure you don't expose them too much.
