Re: Herbs indoors in Mason Jars

Hi @Marzmaldonado,

 

This is a good topic. I'm sure there are many people who are also interested in growing herbs indoors. 

 

I've found most popular herbs will grow well indoors. You just need plenty of natural bright light (but not full sun). You'll also need a pot that drains well so the roots don't rot, and to use high quality organic potting mix.  You might also like to start with full plants if you can rather than growing from seeds or seedlings.  

 

Hopefully others in the community can share their experiences and advice with you.

Re: Herbs indoors in Mason Jars

Most herbs will grow indoors with a little TLC. Some of the easiest are mint, chives, coriander, parsley and basil. Just grow whatever you like to eat. But I don't think you will have much luck growing them in jars. You need a pot that drains. They can easily be killed by too much water. Typically you water them in the sink when watering, then put them back when all the water has drained through the pot rather than sitting them in a saucer of water. 

 

Have you got a good spot in mind? Herbs need sunlight, so somewhere near a window is good.

Hi @Marzmaldonado,

 

Hope all is well. 

 

Just wondering whether you have got your indoor herb garden up and running as yet. Feel free to post again if you need a hand.

Thank you for the reply. I didn't take into consideration that they need draining or natural sunlight. So I may have to re think my position for them now.
