What do you grow indoors?
I've been lurking for a while and have learned a lot (the biggest thing being, roots need air! Who knew?). As a result, my gardening hobby is taking off and there is very little space left on my balcony for new plants, which is the only outdoor space I have available at the moment. (It's mostly full of recuperating Aloe plants I adopted, a bunch of Jade cuttings, and some Bell Pepper plants that have put up with way too much already, although I'm trying to grow lettuce too.) Point is, I can only expand inward!
So, what do you grow indoors? Do you have special lighting, or do the plants do well by a window? Do you feed your indoor plants differently than your outdoor plants? Do your plants show growth and pup, or are they just dormant?
Currently I have a few small Haworthias, Peperomias, mini Aeoniums and Strings of Pearls indoors in a bark-based mix. They have not shown much sign of growth, which is probably because they are about 10 feet from the nearest window. I chose these varieties for indoors based on their labels that said "filtered light", but could probably situate them closer to the window if I rearranged some things.
Related question-- Would a rotating indoors/outdoors schedule be better than constantly being inside? For example, let's say I brought them outside for a week at a time, with a week indoors in between. Would that be helpful or stressful to the plants? I figure they would probably grow faster if they were outside, but I like having plants inside and would have to make space for them outside.
Thanks for your responses!
