Editor's Notes

May 01, 2020:

Growing indoors is a rewarding activity that has only recently become available in the consumer market. Lately, it has become even more accessible due to advancements in technology making it more affordable, and with the advent of LED lamps the energy consumption has come down as well. Growing inside can be much easier than erecting an entire greenhouse, or paying for a spot in your community garden.

If you are looking to cultivate plants inside all year round it's good to know the basics of how traditional growing works. It's important to understand how the sun, nitrates in the soil, carbon dioxide, and water combine to help grow the plant. This will help give you a better understanding as you mimic these conditions in an artificial setting.

Indoor grow kits can range anywhere from affordable to extremely pricey, and you'll want to do some research on what kind of kit your desired plant demands. If you are growing lettuce, then it will be easier to go with a lower budget kit, as this plant is hardier and less prone to disease. If you want to grow something like tomatoes, then you are going to want to make sure you have the proper nutrients, netting for growth, and light cycles to produce a worthwhile yield.

For those with children out there, it's great to start with the Window Garden So Much Fun. You can set this right on the window sill, and it comes with a choice of bean or broccoli seeds.

The Click & Grow Smart Garden and the Aerogarden Bounty are perfect for people that don't want to start a new hobby but would enjoy some fresh herbs and greens every once and while. The kits are self contained and fit anywhere there's enough space, like the kitchen or living room.

Finally, people who are serious about indoor growing should check out the Bloomgrow Tent Kit or the Topogrow Grow Tent. Both of these setups include lamps and everything else you will need to get growing.
