How To Make Your Indoor Garden Space More Awesome
Indoor gardens are all the rage. People while in quarantine have figured out their inner green thumb. While looking for something to do, it’s amazing how many gravitated towards the meditative, aesthetic, and all-around awesome skill of gardening. It’s not just about having the coolest plant, although the coolest plants do help. There’s a lot more that goes into it. There are so many avenues for you to put your spin on your indoor garden. You don’t have to copy anybody. You can be unapologetically you. That’s the best part. Here, will explore the top ways you can make your indoor garden look more awesome. Take them, absorb them, and make them your own.
The best way to brighten up any indoor garden, or anyone for that matter, is with some new windows. Most windows, especially apartment windows, are not outfitted with the right design for an indoor garden. They are all pretty generic. If you get Double hung windows, on the other hand, you’ll have the right amount of light, and most importantly the right amount of air. They are stylish and affordable. They’re not lavish French doors with Venetian molding. They are a functional, very down-home means of getting your plant everything that it needs. The look fits perfectly with the modern aesthetic of a small, but growing, indoor garden. Once you get them installed you’re going to want to post about it immediately.
Another super awesome addition to an indoor garden is something you may have seen in your high school biology class: a terrarium. A terrarium is a completely self-contained ecosystem. It can be either open or closed. It can be dry or wet. When you have a terrarium, the oxygen produced by the plants, whether it be water-based plants or terrestrial plants, fill up a glass jar or tub. You can put in worms, some species of crickets, shrimp— anything that can self sustain and potentially reproduce in that environment. If you keep them next to the double-hung windows, you’ll get all the sunlight and warmth necessary to stimulate photosynthesis and continue the cycle of growth in the glass jar.
The thing about an indoor garden is that it takes up a lot of home space. To get it going, you’re probably going to turn every tabletop next to a window into a place to grow. That’s not a bad thing. That is encouraged. But if you want to save some space, you can think about hanging planters. Now, you can’t do this with all plants. You have to choose smaller plants or plants that are easier to handle. Something that you can water and spray without creating a massive puddle underneath your suspended planter. But if you can get it right, the aesthetics are astounding.
These are just a few ways you can upgrade your indoor garden. They are practical, fun, and encourage creativity. Don’t let anything stand between you and the things that you want to make. Your garden is a reflection of new skills and ingenuity. Treated well. Most importantly, make it awesome.
