Types Of Indoor Gardening

Starting an indoor garden? Yay! Welcome aboard. There are many different growing methods available, however the three most commonly used are soil, hydroponics and aeroponics. Each has its unique advantages and disadvantages.

Soil

The simplest indoor gardening technique is just basic planting with potting soil. Anyone can start a garden with some basic soil. Just fill an appropriately sized pot with a mixture of potting soil and fertilizer and bury your seeds or transfer your plant. As long as you provide your plant with light, water and reasonable temperatures, it will continue to grow.

Drawbacks to using a soil-based growing medium for your indoor garden include the potential for messiness (especially if you have indoor pets). When you bring buckets or bags of soil through your home, some of it is bound to spill on your floor—and unfortunately soil isn’t easy to remove from traditional carpet.

Hydroponics

Hydroponics is a more advanced gardening method that uses a water-based growing medium and nutrient mix. It’s our favorite; can you tell by our name? There are many different ways to set it up, but plants typically have their roots suspended into nutrient-rich water using this system.

 

Hydroponics is a bit more technical and can be more time-consuming than traditional soil-based gardening, but one huge advantage to this method is that plants are supplied nutrients directly into their roots. When water flushes through the hydroponics system, plants get a huge boost of nutrition. Hydroponics typically yields bigger, healthier plants more quickly than traditional gardening.

Aeroponics

Aeroponics is another form of indoor garden that’s become increasingly popular. It’s a form of gardening in which roots are sprayed down with a nutrient mist. The word “aero” literally translates into air, which is exactly how this technique word. The plants in an aeroponics system are suspended with their roots in air and treated with sprays of nutrient-rich water.
