Hello!

I recently decided to do an experiment of Indoor Vegetable Gardening. It is going GREAT so far, even though it is only day nine of planting! The question I am asking is this, is there any way or ideas on how to improve the project? It is too difficult to describe what it looks right right now, so I attached a video I made on YouTube of the Garden.

https://www.youtube.com/attribution_link?a=HU0cr5KtUhg&u=/wa...

If the video doesn't work, I will try another.

Also, I brought in a plant I found in my garden box outside. Not sure what it is, but it is in the video and I need help identifying it.

Thanks!

Gosh, Jared I watched your video and you've put a lot of work into that. But, sorry you've done more things wrong than right and I'm afraid you're going to have a spectacular messy failure there.

Too many reasons to list here, but containers of garden dirt with no drainage, too many plants, not enough sun, some of the plants need cool weather and others like the tomatoes, peppers and pumpkins need heat. If even one of your pumpkin plants grew to a size to bear, it would fill up that whole room!

Sorry to be discouraging, but maybe next time ask for advice before starting?

Hello!

First you need to know that I am NOT mad or discouraged. In fact, I am happy that you said this. I was just trying an experiment. And hey, I got plenty of seeds! 100 a packet! Except carrots, those are short, but they were only 2 bucks, so I am not sad. I got plenty of tries on this experiment! As Thomas Edison said, "I did not fail at making a lightbulb 1000 times, I discovered 1000 ways not to do it!" Anyway, I did put a lot of work into it, but hey, I needed something to do! I can always try again because I got plenty of seeds, however, as I said in the video, finances ARE bad for my family. I have to make due with what I got.

You are right, I should have asked for advice. I thought about it, but things are VERY busy here and I did not have time to post it, eventually I forgot.

I will gladly take your advice next time I try this and as soon I can get the stuff.

Thank you SO much for telling me this!

Failure is the key to success besides you can't always get it right first hand. Thats how we learn. Keep up the good work I watched your video this is my kinda thing. I'm doing something similar with tropical plants but with stronger lights, and its been going great so far. I'm hoping to grow a Mango tree or at least get one started. I like watching videos like yours and there ain't many of them. I wish more people would do things like this. Keep us all updated on your progress.
