Everybody wants to have a little paradise island all for themselves. In order to create a small and cozy haven where you can enjoy the wonders of nature even in cold and winter periods, we prepared for you this article where you can read all about creating a perfect indoor garden. There is no need to wait for spring anymore. Now you can create your little safe place where you can sit back and relax and take pleasure in knowing you have your own Garden of Eden where you can plant whatever it pleases you.

1

Space

The first thing to consider is actually the amount of space you are willing to spare for your indoor garden. Extension builders may help you in upgrading the space and creating it as big as you wish it to be. The most important thing is for the space to be well-organized so you will create a place where everything will have its order. This means to choose whether you wish to have a container or hydroponic garden. Most people opt for container gardens as they are easier to manage and you can grow any kind of plant in any size. Also create a separate space for vegetables and fruits and a different one for decoration plants, greens walls and similar.

Conditions

One of the most important things to keep in mind is what kind of conditions are needed for your plants to grow and develop. Make sure to set up an adequate temperature which is approximately 70°F for most plants. Another thing to think about is the humidity. This can easily be managed with a humidifier or an environmental controller, but also with placing some plants closer to each other in order for humidity levels to rise. Last but certainly not least, the lighting. Make sure to provide your plants with adequate lighting so they could develop. Natural light is always the best option, but make sure to purchase adequate grow lamps for winter periods, when you won’t be able to rely on natural lighting that much.

Plants

The choice of plants you are going to grow in your indoor garden depends completely on personal preference. There are a lot of choices in which you can design your indoor garden. You might wish to create a place where you can relax with only some decoration plants, trees and flowers that will contribute to the atmosphere. On the other hand, you might want to plant vegetables and fruits, which is also a good choice. A combination of the two is also possible, but in that case, you will need to carefully examine the conditions in which you are going to grow certain plants.

Maintenance

Of course, whatever type of plants you choose to plant, you will need to know how to properly take care of them. This includes watering them regularly. Indoor plants, especially container ones are known to dry out more easily so they require more watering. Just make sure not to overwater them as they can easily die. Use a moisture meter to make sure that the plants are getting enough water. Another thing to consider is the soil. Make sure to use natural and organic fertilizers. It is also a good idea to make compost in your home and use it on your plants.

Creating and indoor garden is a great idea for those long winter days where you just want to snuggle up in your home. This way you can transfer one piece of nature right into your house. Grow anything from salads, mushrooms and tomatoes right up to oranges, avocados and flowers. Create your own little piece of heaven just for yourself.
