Here u get 9 benefits of having an indoor garden

People who are living in cities usually live in a condo or apartment where they have minimal earth space to do gardening. They can either utilise their balconies for planting trees or opt for container gardening.

1.Improve your health with improved air quality: We all know that city living is not easy. Every day you have to breathe polluted air filled with smoke and fog. Breathing impure air can make you sick and a victim of several diseases like allergy, asthma, and even life threatening diseases like lung cancer. Do you know that plants can clean the environment around them? Yes, plants take in carbon dioxide and give out oxygen there by making the air around them pure .plants also absorb other gases like benzene, and other gases and emit oxygen. It is again the plants that increase the humidity levels of the atmosphere. In fact there is a plant known as ivy plant that increases the quality of the air efficiently. If you are interested in improving the quality of air around you, plant ivy in your indoor garden.

2.Control the temperature and environment : If you are having a proper garden outdoors, you cannot protect the plants from harsh temperature and weather conditions like rain, snow or frost. When you grow plants indoors, you can protect the plants from excess sunlight, snow and rain.

3.Have your own indoor kitchen garden: Planting an indoor garden does not mean that having few pots of flowering plants in your balcony. You can have your own veggies or fruits well inside your homes. Plant a few tomato, or basil plants in your balcony and you can enjoy fresh vegetables which are devoid of preservatives.

4. Educational purpose: Now, upon hearing this you may wonder how can indoor gardening serve the purpose of education?, but it is quite true. If you have kids at home and if they have to learn about plants and gardening, you can surely show a lively example of plant parts and the method of gardening. Isn it a unique way of teaching?

5. Protect the plants from insects and pests: when you grow plants in an outdoor space, they are more prone to attack from pests or insects. If they are grown indoors the plants will be completely safe from pests and insects.

6.Indoor garden can reduce sound pollution: You may believe it or not, having an indoor garden can help to reduce the noise pollution. According to recent studies, a living roof can reduce the sounds up to 40 decibels. So why not start building up your own indoor garden today itself?

7. Reduces temperature: hot seasons means more of air conditioners and rising electricity bills. Interior designers and gardening specialists vouchsafe on the reduction of inside temperatures up to 8 percent there by keeping your home cool and helping you to reduce your electricity bills.

8. Increase the life expectancy of your roof: apart from providing you a cool shade in summer, indoor plants also help to increase the life expectancy of your roof. And you can save on your maintenance costs

9: Grow plants which can provide you nutrition, health and well being: Having an indoor garden means you can plant your own collection of flower, fruit or health providing plants like aloe vera and reaping the benefits all year around.

So how about collecting seeds and saplings of your favorite plants and start planting them ? You are doing a bit to save Mother Nature too.

    I have one of the elephant ear plants like the one you have in this video.  It was on the north side of the house under a covered porch all summer, did very well.  I brought it inside this fall and had it in a south window.  It bloomed, but then stated to lose leaves.  I cut off the forming seed pod, hoping that it would help. Any ideas?  Could it be possible that it needed to be fed because of the blooming and setting seeds?

    i grow poinsettias outdoors year round in southern california. not the one you find at the store, those are hybrids. i grow the wild type that grow in mexico. they can get up to about 8 feet high in just one season.

  • Petericia Patsy

    Yes you are… are very good. Am now bringing my plants up from the foyer where its chilly and am grouping them together as you said. Will also get that bulb and put water around them. Thanks for your help.

    Hi Ray. I couldn't find the link for the predatory mites. I believe I have fungus gnats and spider mites attacking my pepper plants right now. Would the best thing be the predatory mites? I also have pyrethrin, and diatomaceous earth that I use in my garden but not sure of the best course to take inside. Thank you! Great show as always!

  • ahj71

    The BEST thing for gnats is Mexican Butterwort plant! They love the plant & the plant loves to eat them! It's amazing. Ty it.

    Hey Ray, I got so excited this weekend gone, 1-01-16. We had a re-grand opening of our office here is SJ, CA and to my surprise I was you…well your twin walking through the crowd. For a moment I thought you were visiting this area. I almost walk up to this guy and say hi Ray, its Susan. Well I looked at him very close and he is wearing glasses just like you are right now. Any for a at least 3 minutes I thought it was you, I'm sure you know when you see someone on the TV then when you see them in real person you have to look a little closer. It would have been cool to meet you though. Oh I was your video of how you got started and I am totally get why you might want to do what you are doing. Its awesome, I love my house plants and you give so much tips on caring for them. Thank you.

    I got one of those fly strips stuck in my hair once while I was in my utility room. It was so gross and took multiple washes to get the sticky out. :)

  • Hazlett Homestead

    I'm sorry, but I had to laugh at your fly paper story. I had a very similar experience when I was a kid although mine required a hair trim to get it removed. Lets just say that I have a healthy respect for the strip from hell. lol

    Excellent video! Thank you for these brilliant tips. The segment on lighting was very helpful.
    I wanted to ask: Do you have a video in which you list all the plants you are currently growing in the Voodoo garden? If not, I would be greatly interested in such a video!! Thanks again for contributing such wonderful content.

    Hey Ray, Nice picks! The one that you think is a prayer plant is actually indeed a prayer plant if you haven't found out already, although its genus name, Calathea is different from the more common or popular Maranta prayer plant.
