Best Indoor Gardens for Apartments or Condos

Utilizing indoor space for gardens is on the rise and with some of these new techniques, it’s easier than ever.

  • Container gardens. These models are self-watering and have a built-in reservoir that help plants grow and thrive longer between watering. This reduces the amount of stress they endure, which in turn will encourage stronger growth. They are also designed to look cool and blend in with any space.
  • Vertical gardens. If you have a balcony that you can use, this is a great option. This kind of garden flourishes in sunny areas and comes in a number of different styles that can grow easily and quickly, while also utilizing the limited space you have to its best ability.[2]
