Remember my indoor gardening? It didn't work out so well, but I learned a lot of things.
1) We have a cold, humid, and dark apartment that doesn't get direct sunlight.
2) Plants like sunshine and heat.
3) I'm too tired to take plants out into the sunshine on warm days.
4) Even if I could take them out, there are a lot of curious little fingers outside that smoosh the plants.
5) The plants aren't safe inside either. There are also little fingers that live in here.
6) Neither are the plants aren't safe around me. I had a plant that was doing fairly well, and I had high hopes for it. Then I knocked it over, breaking the stems and spilling dirt all over. Oops.
These are my only plants that are still going. They're called 4 O'clocks. They're hanging on, but just barely. I have them next to the kitchen window where they get about 15 minutes of sunlight on some days. I'm hoping that they'll hang on until it is warm and sunny outside and I can put them in a spot where they'll get more light.
Our apartments are right in front of a huge rock wall that has tall trees up on top. Sunlight doesn't reach our apartments or the lawn in front of the apartments until the middle of summer. I'm going to have to find plants that survive with no direct sunlight at all. Suggestions anyone?
