Tips for Apartment Gardening

If you live in an apartment, you may not think you have the proper accommodations for gardening. However, you can still add some greenery to your apartment with a few quick tips

starting out

Start your garden small. Only pot a few plants to make sure you're comfortable with taking care of them. Once you feel comfortable, you can expand with more plants. Try planting succulents first as they are easy to maintain require little water.

Use vertical space

Increase the space for your garden by thinking vertical. Use hanging pots and tiered planter boxes. These make for beautiful accents to any apartment.

create a watering schedule

It's important to never overwater plants. Create a schedule to add to your daily or weekly routine. Use colored stickers to track watering frequencies for different plants.

deciding what to plant

Do you want to grow your own veggies and herbs? Do you just want some pretty flowers to brighten up the space? Consider what is important to you but don't forget to research what plants pair well together.

pay attention to humidity

Different factors can dry out the air in an apartment and some plants are more dependent on humid conditions than others. Use a spray bottle to mist the plants in absence of moisture. You can also leave a bowl of water near the plants.
