How to avoid thin leggy leaning plants in your apartment garden
Updated: Apr 6
In my experience, growing plants indoors is not as easy as it looks. The power of sun rays are weakened, due to the double glazing on your windows.
If the sunlight is not enough then plants will grow thin and 'leggy' towards it.
This lean makes them weak and prone to falling over. They normally die shortly after if there is no intervention.
I have had success in saving leaning plants by putting them under grow lights. This made them grow a lot faster and healthier.
There are other tricks like twisting the pot every day or so as mentioned in the podcast.
I found this podcast really informative. Fred Hower talks about how to grow a herb garden indoors with or without a grow light.
