Do you have fruit trees/plants growing in your house? A lot of people enjoy having house plants, but... why not enjoy ones that give something back?
I recently read fun book, Growing Tasty Tropical Plants. It talks about growing all kinds of tropical plants in any home... including bananas and pineapples! Did you know there is such thing as a "Peanut Butter Plant?!"
Anyways, we've been enjoying plenty of kumquats over the past few weeks. :) The plant/tree is just about 2.5' tall and 1/5' wide... but there were 45 kumquats total!
Even though they are sunbathing near bright windows and windowsills, I have a slight uneasy feeling that they really need is some kind of grow light system. There are 2 things holding me back from this:
2. Where to put it?
Discovering that I truly enjoy gardening, I guess I would not mind investing in something that would last me for years. So the biggest barrier is really where I would put it... I am somewhat of a 'neat freak' and don't want to necessarily look at it all the time. I would love to hear your thoughts/ideas on this...
Are you starting seeds indoors? If so, what are you growing? And, do you use any sort of lighting system?
