Now that you know which delicious herbs you want to grow, we need to understand how to get these plants to thrive.
Proper drainage and watering are the keys to success in an indoor garden! Too much water can drown the herbs, and without adequate drainage, the plant sits in wet soil and will not flourish.
Placing gravel or pebbles in the bottom of the pot will protect the herb’s roots. Don’t forget a tray on the bottom of your pot to prevent your well-drained herbs from ruining the area they’re sitting on,
A bonus for having indoor plants is selecting fun and unique pots for planting them! Matching your style and décor with your potted plants is another fun way to incorporate your new green thumb. If your new plant vessel is large enough for the plant and you can achieve proper drainage, the possibilities for containers are limitless!
Choose a soil that is best for indoor plants and rich in organic nutrients. While you can plant different herbs together, it is essential to ensure that each plant has enough room to spread out and grow. One exception to this is the bully herb: mint. Mint doesn’t like to share and will take over any other plant in its presence.
