Indoor gardening is an art, but even those with a black thumb can make a success of it with the right type of plants. Indoor gardening serves a number of purposes: beautification, purification and source of activity and relaxation. Many persons are unable to keep an outdoor garden because they live in apartment buildings or the climate just is not conducive to outdoor gardening.

To get the best out of your indoor gardening efforts, the following tips will come in handy:

Select the right type of plants

Some indoor plants are easier to care for than others, so depending on the time you have available this is a serious consideration for indoor gardening. The best plants to use indoors are foliage plants because they are generally easy to maintain since they do not require a lot of attention.

Types of containers

The container used for indoor plants must be drainable, that is, water shouldn t sit in there after the plants are watered. If the pots do not allow drainage some plants will die as the roots will rot, plus mosquitoes will use the still water as a breeding ground. Also, some indoor plants need very little water such as cactus.

Temperature control

Humidity and temperature control are also vital to the health of indoor gardening. House plants need a certain level of humidity to grow well. Humidity can be maintained by using a humidifier, but you can also help by spraying water on the leaves in the morning. It is not advisable to do this at night since there is less evaporation and this can result in the plant rotting. Try to maintain a temperature range of between 65 75 degrees Fahrenheit. Most plants can stand fluctuation of between 8 10 degrees daily; anything greater or lesser can result in poorly growing plants. If your plant leaves begin to turn yellow it is an indication that the temperature is too low; if the plants fail to strive the temperature may be too high.

Arrange for adequate lighting

Most plants need some amount of sunlight to strive, however this is not always possible. If you are unable to provide enough natural light for your indoor gardening needs, consider installing artificial lighting.

How to water plants, when and how often

Watering indoor plants calls for observation of certain rules. These include:

Try to use room temperature water so as not to shock the plants Wet the soil and allow to drain so that it does not become soggy Do not over water the plants

Indoor gardening, also commonly known as container gardening is a great way to brighten a cold winter s day.
