I’ve never had green fingers and the only plant I had as a kid was a cactus which dried out and looked the same for years even though I never touched it. When I finally moved into this apartment it looked a bit gloomy without plants so a friend of mine convinced me into growing food instead of buying flowers. Nothing fancy – just simple things like chili pepper, tomatoes, basil and lemon balm. Truth to be told – I’ve forgotten what the rest of them are.
Despite doing everything wrong such as planting 20 seeds in one flowerpot (yeah, I wanted to be sure something grew) and leaving them for days without water and sun – they’re still alive.
Most of them took a serious beating a few days ago when I decided to cut down most of it and leave just one or two plants in every flowerpot but I’m happy with the results as long as my chili and tomato plants survive this year. I’m hooked though and regardless of the results I’ll expand and grow more plants next year with more experience.
If you’re looking for something more advanced I must say Bonsai Chiles look amazing.
