These are a few pics of my indoor garden. Sometimes I’ll just throw things in dirt to see what happens. It’s easier than a lot of people think. The pics below are of a Red Bell Pepper plant, Green Onions (Scallions), Garlic and a Beef Steak Tomato plant.
The Red Bell Peppers I started by just throwing seeds from a Red Bell Peeper in a pot of dirt I used for just that…throwing seeds in. The pic of the Green Onions and garlic are the same thing only not from seed. What I did was take the ends of of green onions I bought at the market…you know how they have the roots on them already, well all you have to do is cut the ends off like you normally would and stick them in dirt. Don’t totally cover them, just push them in so the roots are in and you can still see the top and then they’ll start to grow.
Same for the Garlic; all I did was take a clove of garlic from the head of garlic, that I bought from the store, and stick it in dirt. As you can see it’s doing the same thing…it’s the one in the middle My place has a lot of light so that helps…if you live in a dark apartment, put your pots close to the window or in the window sill.
The tomato plant isn’t from seed but it is from the 99 cents store; It’s a "Beef Steak Tomato" …Hmmm, I wonder if vegetarians can eat this type of tomato since it has beef in the title?
It was almost dead and about 6 inches tall when I bought it, now it’s about 5 feet.
Remember not to over water the plants…they’ll tell you when they need it…if the leaves look droopy, they’re telling you they need water, but you can also keep an eye on the soil…if it looks dry, then it’s probably a good idea to water them. Give them the love they need and they’ll grow well!
The pic of the orchid is a cool one…there’s a whole other plant growing out of the top of the first and it’s blooming…this the third time this orchid has bloomed, so remember, when the flowers fall off, the orchid isn’t dead so don’t throw it away…it will flower again, just don’t over water it. If re-potting, buy orchid bark or the orchid soil and they’ll love you for it.
All the pics below were taken recently, except the tomato…I ate that bad boy last month!
