I am currently enjoying a growing
interest in growing
things. This is a whole new world for me and I can admit that I only know the basics that plants
need water, soil and light to grow and of course a suitable environment.
I have already begun growing plants
and have enjoyed seeing them sprout. So now I have questions and concerns.
I live in a west facing apartment where I have limited amounts of direct sunlight. Since I did not know what to grow I just picked out seed
packets more or less at random. I have cherry tomatoes, habaneros, basil, chocolate flower
, texas bluebonnets, bluebells, california poppy, and columbine and I can tell that there will be success issues.
I have bought a couple of growing
lights from Home Depot and these shine on the plants
for a majority of the day and I keep a humidifier going. Most everything is planted in eight inch pots and I have basically thinned everything to one or two sprouts per pot. I am using potting soil I purchased from home depot and pots as well that all have good drainage.
Since I have invested some and would like to invest much more in to this, my question is: What kind of plants
, herbs, vegetables would grow best in my stated environment for maximum succes and what could I do to expand my options with what I have to work with? I don't have any preferences yet as to what I want to grow.
I appreciate any and all input.
Thanks for your time.
