Herewith a very short note to help guide those readers who have no alternative but to focus their gardening projects inwards if you will. These are the people whose physical circumstances do not leave them any space to venture outdoors to start up an organic plant or vegetable garden. There are mounds of encouragement for those readers presently thinking about their required cultivation for plant growth for an indoor environment.
Presently, a variety of methods for indoor plant growth cultivation are available and can potentially be implemented to the small, domestic environment of the kitchen sink window sill and apartment balcony, if one is privileged to have such an urban space. All laboratory plant research continues to be focused on the germination and growth of plants. Cultivation protocols are being adapted to cater for indoor conditions and its required materials.
While barley and rice are commonly used during laboratory experiments in determining cultivation methods for optimum plant growth indoors, systemic methods used can be applied to a variety of other plant species. Methods to be taken into account will include hydroponics and plant growth in soil. Along the way, modifications will be made to taken into account different conditions, such as temperature and the amount of soil space available.
A home based laboratory set up is richly rewarding alongside of its ease of use. You begin with something as small as a germinating seed in a small glass jar filled with clear water. This beginning method of observation is ideal for the cultivation of bean plants. Otherwise, and in most cases, seeds will be placed directly into prepared soil. You only need a little of this in the beginning stages, and when the first seeds germinate, you can carefully transfer your organisms to slightly larger containers.
