How does an indoor garden work?

There are three main growing systems that indoor gardening kits use: soil-based, hydroponic, aquaponic and aeroponic systems. Soil-based systems are similar to growing plants in an outdoor garden — they contain pods with traditional potting soil that you can plant seeds into and water periodically.

How do you garden indoors in a house?

  1. Find the right space for your DIY indoor garden.
  2. Choose vegetables and herbs that thrive indoors.
  3. Make sure there’s adequate sunlight.
  4. Water less for a successful DIY indoor garden.
  5. Take proper care of your plants by using the correct soil.

How many hours of light does an indoor garden need?

Plants grown indoors require more hours of light than those grown outdoors. 14 to 18 hours of light per day is recommended for most edible species when grown under artificial lighting. Don’t be tempted to leave the lights on 24-7, however – at least six hours of darkness each day is essential to plant health.

Are Aerogardens worth it?

In testing, our lettuce garden grew within weeks and produced enough for daily harvests. So while it’s undoubtedly pricey, the AeroGarden Bounty Elite is a reliable and relatively low-effort gardening system that makes it easy to grow herbs, vegetables, or flowers indoors, no matter the time of year.

How does a hydroponic system work?

Hydroponic systems work by allowing minute control over environmental conditions like temperature and pH balance and maximized exposure to nutrients and water. Hydroponics operates under a very simple principle: provide plants exactly what they need when they need it.
