Plants do a great deal more than making an apartment look alive and pretty. They also help to purify the air, and make your space look more welcoming. And you don’t need a lot of space, outdoor or otherwise, to start. As long as you have a window to let some sunlight in, you can have plants! Just be sure to practice mindful watering.
Choosing the right seed and soil is only one part of the process. The fun part is picking the ideal planter or pot. First,do some research into what your plant baby wants in a home, such as how shallow the soil is, amount of water, and depth, before picking one. Pro tip? Be sure to get a planter or pot that is the same size or a few cms larger than the plant. Over time, plants should be repotted, but growing in size is a gradual process.
