If you are learning how to grow plants in your home, keep reading about the easiest indoor plants to grow from seed. Insider Monkey recently published an article about this topic giving us some very useful tips. As I have a mini farm – or something like that – I usually grow little plants from seeds since January. It’s really not a big something, believe me! When January comes, I just simple sow seeds into pots: mainly vegetables. For example paprika. The seeds begin to grow later on, and when they are small plants in April I plant them in the kitchen garden. Year by year I put aside seeds of my vegetables and fruits, dry them – and volilá! next year I can sow them. Several vegetables can be grown on the window-sill: paprika, tomato, bean, spices and herbs.
The secret of having healthy nice plants is to know what conditions they require. First starting from the seed. Make sure to purchase healthy seeds from a reliable vendor. Other possibilities are finding seeds on your own, like famous growing avocados from seeds hacks (which don’t give satisfying results in most cases). But anyway, when you have purchased/gathered the seed, be sure to get some knowledge about germination time and process, the amount of heat and water seedlings require and best soil for the future plant.
Now without a further ado let’s see what Insider Monkey has investigated for us. We have picked three of the easiest indoor plants to grow from seed.
The first one is Geranium (Geranium genus). With many varieties of this flower, Geraniums are very popular as indoor plants. Although mainly grown from cuttings, Geraniums can also be grown from seeds, with the instructions recommended by researchers of Iowa State University. The second idea is Citrus plants (Citrus genus). These are plants you can experiment on your own. Just choose any, lemon, mandarin, orange, that you regularly buy at your grocery store. Growing sprouts from seeds is pretty easy, you can put them in the soil or in the water, and they will germinate quickly. Continuing to grow citrus plants later on will not take as much attention as they will need time. So be patient if you want to see a little tree in your pot. And the last one for today is Chili peppers (Capsicum genus). We have not picked any particular species of chili peppers, let the choice be yours. Chili peppers are very attractive (and useful) plants, and they are easily grown in pots. Once you buy seeds and successfully grow your own plants, you will have your own seeds for the next season! Definitely one of the easiest indoor plants to grow from seed.
