If you have an indoor garden, you will have a series of issues you have to deal with just like when you have an outdoor garden. For your indoor project there are different things that you deal with that you should be aware of.
One very common problem is that your plants are not germinating. For one reason or another your plants won’t grow at all or will start off well then die. The most common mistake that most make is that they pack the soil way too much. Your indoor plants need to have light soil that is easy for the roots to grow into. If you pack too tight, you end up with young and dead plants.
Another issue many notice is that their plants are wilting despite sticking to the water routine as suggested. The issue here is that the plants are really not getting enough water. While this might sound strange since you are watering enough, there is other water that outdoor plants get. Humidity, dew, and the occasional make the difference for outdoor plants. Water your plants a bit more than suggested to make up for all this.
If you notice that your plants are not growing as they should, it’s probably a light issue since they are indoors. Try your best to get them into some sunlight preferably at the south side of your home. Another option is to grow plants that require less lighting. You can also purchase some grow lights that will help give them the lighting they need.
Another common issue is that your plants just don’t see to be right for some reason. They grow a bit but seem to be unhealthy. There are two options for this. The first is that indoor plants can suffer from bacteria issues. These need to be removed and treated. Another mistake is that you get too ambitious with fertilizer. It’s better to just get good quality soil and skip the fertilizer process with indoor plants.
