I partnered with Zulily to bring you this post about easy indoor gardening tips. While I may have been compensated, all opinions are my own.

When it comes to gardening I don’t always have a green thumb, but I do enjoy and take some time to learn about it and do my best. Which is what I want you to do for yourself during this season, give yourself the gift of starting an indoor garden and enjoy the beauty of seeing it grow and enjoy the harvest. Grab these easy indoor gardening tips and let’s see what you “grow” out of it!

Gardening is a way of art, a means to relaxing and enjoying fresh air and beauty. Indoor gardening is perfect for those with small to no backyard space or those that simply don’t want to deal with enjoying a garden outside. 

Easy indoor gardening tips

What to garden indoors?

  • Herbs, choose the best herbs for growing indoors, but most importantly choose herbs you want to enjoy. There’s no reason why you would grow a cilantro plant if you prefer parsley, or vice versa. 

We love growing herbs, a few we have grown at home and love are: 

    1. Cilantro
    2. Mint
    3. Parsley
    4. Rosemary 
    5. Lavender
  • Succulents

Succulents we have grown indoors and love

    1. Aloe Vera – a favorite in our home, if it starts growing too much, snip some of it off, replant and give them away to family and friends. They’ll enjoy the gift. 
    2. Plus a variety of small Succulents
  • Some vegetables

A few veggies varieties we have grown at home and love are: 

    1. Peppers
    2. Tomato
    3. Cucumber (note: this one grew into vines and was a little tricky to contain)
  •  Beautiful flowers

Our home is always filled with Orchids, they bloom at different times of the year which means we always enjoy one or two plants at a time. They require very little water and indirect light works for them as well. 

  • Plants for providing oxygen

Plants we love that provides oxygen:

    1. Bamboo plant
    2. Fig plant
    3. Fresh Golden Pothos Plant (note, one of my favorites)
    4. Peace Lily
