When it comes to indoor plants, there are just so many options. It can be hard to choose which indoor plants you should buy. The first thing that you need to think about is the size of the indoor garden. Do you have a large area to work with, or do you want a smaller indoor garden? Is an indoor garden going to be for indoor only, or will it also encompass outside areas as well?
The second thing that you should consider is your budget. If you have plenty of money to spend, you can easily find lavender plant for sale. There are literally hundreds of indoor gardeners who are selling their plants right now. You can usually see indoor lavender plants or seeds for sale at almost any local garden center or even at many online garden stores.
If you are on a budget, you may want to consider an indoor plant that uses a Cascara Sagrada. This plant grows quite well in indoor environments and can live up to five years with proper care. The plant has a dark green color when fully mature. In a greenhouse setting, the plant will produce wonderful blooms. They have beautiful flowers that show off the colors of blue and purple.
You must also remember that harvesting your lavender plants is essential. It is not only important for the plant, but it is critical to ensure that the quality of the plant remains high. Harvesting before the flowers bloom and before the leaves begin to die can harm the plant. Do this weekly, and make sure you prune accordingly.
There are two main types of indoor lavender grower; they are the hydroponic system, which require no soil at all, and the partial-solution method, which require a shallow container filled with water that provides a good growing medium. Each method has advantages and disadvantages. For example, in a hydroponic system, your lavender grower should be in direct sunlight. This is important, because they prefer direct sunlight over artificial lighting. They also like the deep, clean look of full sunlight, and the dark, damp soil in which they thrive is a welcome change from the bright, sunny garden.
A partial-solution method of planting lavenders needs much less space, but you do need a good drainage system. A solution of one part per 4-inch of soil is sufficient. This allows your plants to get as much water as they need without being drown in water. Watering is not always easy, so you will want to check regularly on the condition of your soil. Keep the water well diluted, so there is no hard water build-up.
The final option for indoor pots of lavender is the partial-solution system. Although you do not provide the best growing conditions for your plant, you do provide the best time for replanting. It is during late spring or early summer, that is the best time to plant lavender outside.
If you have fern leaf lavender or other varieties of this type of lavandula, it is important that you take special care to replant them when the flowers come out. The first year your indoor lavender plant will flower, the leaves will appear to die, and you will notice a decline in the number of blossoms. To encourage production of more flowers, replant the seeds in late winter or early spring. Make sure you dig the holes just deep enough for the roots to remain within. If you are planting more than one plant, place them at different times and days to give each plant its own amount of sunlight and nutrients.
