A self-sustainable home today is not science fiction. Take your home to a new level, with us. We will teach you how to grow your own garden, without leaving your home.
1. Look for the light
Sometimes it happens that we choose striking aesthetically at the time of planting, looking for the house to look beautiful. It does not matter where the plants look better, but where they will have more options to grow; keep in mind that vegetables need about six hours a day of sunlight.
2. Give them an ideal house
When you select the “perfect” place, look for large containers, with good depth to give space to the roots. Check carefully that they do not have holes, so that the water does not escape.
To simplify things, thinking of you, we recommend using containers between 7 and 15 centimeters deep.
3. The Earth is everything
Lex Luthor (the villain of Superman) said that it was all about the earth. He was right, although he spoke from another perspective. It is that there are the nutrients that will make your plants healthy.
It combines several types of fertilizers or substrates. We recommend that you achieve a spongy mixture, so that the oxygen enters, but that maintains the conditions of the original ecosystem of the plant.
4. Seeds or buds?
If you’re not a master gardener, better start with outbreaks. Sure, be careful not to do it if you want to harvest vegetables like carrots, because your task would be impossible. We recommend lettuce, tomatoes or onions. Be very careful with the roots; They need big holes. Once the plant is planted, gently press the substrate around the plant and water with sprinkler.
5. Water is life
Not all plants need the same amount of water or they can be watered in the same way. Some require liquid only in the roots, others in the leaves.
Also, pay attention to the time of year. The climate and humidity will determine the perfect amount of water needed.
Plants, like us, should eat. We recommend balanced fertilizers, which are used for flowers and vegetables. They are known as NPK fertilizers and have potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus.
We would tell you to look for carbon too, but take it for granted; the air pollution already brings it.
7. Identify friends and enemies
You must know something you do not want to hear. Your plants are going to have visitors. Therefore, it is important that you detect whether they are threats or not. For example, ladybugs, bees and spiders are excellent insecticides.
Do not do what others tell you, do not go the easy way. Sow what you want and your desire to grow your own garden will be possible.
