Indoor Gardening for Beginners
It's the weekend again and you're pretty much stuck indoors, for there's a deadly virus lurking outside.
You've already gone through half of Netflix's streaming library. Your fridge probably can't house any more of the end products of your culinary experimentation. Besides, there are only so many times you can re-read your favourite books and magazines.
Why not put yourself to work on a new creative project?
Behold, indoor gardening!
BUILD YOUR OWN INDOOR GARDENING KIT
To get yourself started, you'll have to shop for options online. Fix a suitable budget, and then proceed to make a list of everything you'll need to prepare an indoor garden of your own. Your list should include the following: seeds/plant shoots/leaves, planters, indoor plant fertilizers, and potting soil. From here on, you can customise however you please. If you intend to focus on a minimalistic indoor garden that won't require much space or effort, you might consider growing your own herbs for instance. Set up mint, basil, or oregano planters by the windowsill for ease of access and you're good to go. For something more elaborate, you could opt for themed planters to create a fairy garden consisting of succulents and mini lanterns which can easily brighten up any corner of your house.
GARDENING DOS AND DON'TS
In order to take upon the role of a responsible plant parent, you must remember to tend to your plants' needs. Some key factors in this regard include: room for growth, exposure to light, provision of nutrients, and frequency of hydration. If you're purchasing seed packets, be sure to consult the label on the packaging for information on germination specific to that particular plant. Beginners are always advised to exercise their green thumbs by starting off with smaller plants that have minimal requirements. As you work your way to becoming an expert, you'll have to keep in mind the right kind of potting soil and nutrients, the appropriate foliage, the optimum environmental conditions, and the necessary measures for disinfection and cleanliness.
SHARE THE JOY OF GARDENING
Once your green thumb has been well-exercised over time, why not spread the love by gifting gardening starter kits to your loved ones? You can include either plant cuttings or packaged seeds in your kits.
