5 Innovative Indoor Apartment Gardening Ideas: Easy DIY Projects for gardening in small spaces

I recently moved into a new apartment. The first think I wanted to do was start my apartment garden. There are so many innovated techniques used to created an indoor apartment garden. Below are some of my favorite apartment gardening ideas.

1. Regrowing plants from scraps

There are many herbs and vegetables that you can regrow from cuttings bought from the grocery store. You can find unique glass containers at thrift stores or even the dollar store. Place the cuttings in water by a window seal and watch them grow. You can try to regrow spring onions, Leeks, Scallions, Fennel, lemongrass, ginger, potatoes, sweet potatoes, romaine lettuce, celery, bok choy and cabbage. I'm currently growing these green onions in my bedroom window seal in shot glasses I bought from the dollar store. Change the water daily and enjoy watching the growth.


2. Indoor Aquaponics apartment garden

AQUAPONICS is a system of growing plants in the water that has been used to cultivate aquatic organisms. Here are some youtube videos explaing how to create your own home aquaphonic system.


3. Vertical gardens for vegetables and herbs

Using found or inexpensive materials to build vertical gardens a great way to garden in small spaces. Vertical gardens are perfect for apartment gardening and in environment here there is not a lot of space.

  2. I've been wanting to learn how to grow potatoes in indoor gardening tent! Also, question, do the potatoes get bigger then that? or were they that size because that particular species of potatoes only get that big? I ask because I want to grow potatoes bigger then those, not the giant mammoth potatoes, but the ones that are about 4 inches length, and 3 inches width.
