How To Have A Garden In An Apartment?

How To Have A Garden In An Apartment?
by Jerome Foster - October 7, 2021

Plants are an essential part of our lives because they provide us with oxygen and help purify the air we breathe. They can also be used as decoration for your home or office space. 

Growing plants is a great way to add some life and color to your home. It’s also relaxing, therapeutic, and can even help reduce stress. But if you live in an apartment or condo with limited space, it might seem impossible. Growing plants in an apartment can be a challenge, but it’s not impossible. There are many ways to have a garden in an apartment.

There are lots of ways to make sure your plant gets the sunlight it needs while living indoors. The first thing we recommend doing is getting yourself a good full-spectrum light bulb like this one here on Amazon. These bulbs mimic the sun's rays and help give your indoor plant all the light it needs throughout its life cycle. 

If you're not into buying new lights would be trying out some DIY methods such as using mirrors or reflective surfaces around your house to bounce more light onto your plant's leaves during the daytime hours when they are most active, i.e., from 10 am - 4 pm. 

This method works especially well if there are windows near where you place these reflectors because they'll naturally bounce more sunlight back towards them at those times of day when they're open and receiving direct sunlight already anyway.

Lastly, another great idea would be growing plants under artificial lighting like LED Grow Lights, which work very similarly but without worrying about replacing any bulbs ever since LEDs last up to 50x longer than the regular fluorescent light bulbs.

If you’re looking for an easy way to start, then we recommend starting with succulents. They require little water and can be grown in just about anything. You can even use old plastic bottles as planters. 

Succulents are great because they don’t need much light or soil, making the perfect indoor plant. Plus, they come in all shapes and sizes, so there is something for everyone.
