Container gardening refers exclusively to the growing of flowering plants in containers. You could use chipped china, glass, or metal bottles, and even cheese or canned-food tins for the indulgence. You can grow alyssums, marigolds, begonias, coleus, browallias, geraniums, impatiens, and latanas in containers. Indoor flower gardening gives you the liberty to spruce up the living room and other guest-centric areas of the home, such as the lobby and guest-room, when and as required. The pots, being small, can be moved around easily. This feature also aids special sunlight, moisture, and water requirements of certain flowering plants.
There are a number of online and offline resources dedicated to the art of indoor gardening that supply you with beakers of various sizes and special garden tools. The holders, either bought or generated from the kitchen, could be sorted to suit a pre-planned theme. You could pick from a color scheme or a size theme and accordingly assimilate the containers into a stand or tray. Investing in such holders designed for container gardening helps a lot when many plants are to be relocated. The suppliers of gardening equipment also make available special soils that are engineered for indoor gardening.
Among the many varieties of flowering plants popularly chosen for container gardening are:
- A suitable area in the home that can accommodate one or many of the containers set aside for the garden.
- Plastic, metallic, or ceramic pots.
- Planting mediums that drain rapidly, but only after retaining sufficient root moisture.
- Soil-less mixes that keep the flowering plant free from soil-borne diseases and most essentially, weeds.
- A stand or tray to ensure daily relocation of the plants for their vital supply of direct sunlight.
- Fertilizers designed with plant boosters, to ensure that your plants get their supply of essential nutrients and trace elements.
