How To DIY A Climate-Friendly Indoor Greenhouse

pexels-photo-348689

Millions of Americans take up gardening as a way to combat climate change. What happens when intense climate changes prevent you from doing what you love? The problem of not receiving enough sunlight to fuel your plants’ growth is prevalent in places where there are  cold temperatures or extreme changes in seasons. Because of this, greenhouses are becoming more and more popular as a way to create a consistent gardening space year-round. However, innovations in gardening and hydroponics are revolutionizing this and allowing gardeners to turn their fridges into grow spaces that support plant life.

Fridge indoor GardenMarket Testing on Smartphone-Controlled Fridge Gardens

Applications such as Everblume are still being tested and perfected for market release. These applications and devices, which sit nicely in your kitchen, create the perfect growing conditions for a variety of plants and vegetables. Following the basics of a hydroponic garden, the refrigerator box uses nutrient-rich water to grow plants instead of.It connects to your smartphone to allow you to control temperature, lighting and other important factors. While this is a great concept, it’s actually pretty simple to construct a similar box on your own using the right mini fridge. All you need is a high-quality fridge, excellent grow lights and a working knowledge of hydroponics.

The Best Plants to Grow in an Indoor Greenhouse

It’s important to know which types of plants will be more successful in this kind of environment. These types of plants will need at least 14 to 16 hours of artificial sunlight a day, which means you’ll want to invest in the proper grow lights for the job. Leafy greens such as lettuce, spinach and cabbage grow great in hydroponic greenhouses. Smaller, lightweight fruits are best in these types of conditions, such as strawberries or raspberries. If you’re more into growing herbs, you’ll find that basil grows exceptionally well in hydroponic conditions as do oregano, rosemary and dill.

Using Actual Cold Storage to Prolong the Life of Your Garden

Once you’ve got a handle on your DIY fridge-based greenhouse, you can actually make use of another mini fridge in order to store the fruits of your labor. Cold storage is a great place to store harvested fruits and vegetables in order to prolong their life and prevent them from spoiling. If you live in a place that experiences especially cold winters, this is a great way to store various plants until the spring when they can be eaten fresh. Growing all throughout the winter with the help of hydroponics and the right grow lights will have you producing more than before. You will likely need somewhere to store the leftovers anyway.

Making Use of Winter Downtime

Just because it’s cold outside doesn’t mean your gardening has to stop. Designing your own personal indoor greenhouse is easy when you figure out how to strike the right balance of space, nutrient-rich water, and grow lights. All of this will allow you to make use of winter downtime and grow year-round.

Dimmable Plant Light

I have an orchid that needed more light and the Vita Grow Light fit the bill perfectly. Floor space is precious and because the light is dimmable I can put it closer to the orchid than normal and take up surface area. The orchid loves it and I have more room as the light can be closer to the orchid than other plant lights allow.

New life for Fiddle Leaf Fig

I have had my fiddle leaf fig for a few years now and have now realized that it was never getting enough light. I recently pruned my fiddle leaf fig and new growth was non existent. In fact, it looked like I actually caused more harm than good after pruning. I needed something to help aside from watering and fertilizer. I decided to invest in a growlight and since using the Aspect LED Growthlight my fiddle leaf fig has drastically changed in appearance and has a few new buds. The formerly damaged growth, yellowish in appearance, is now healthy and shiny! I am ordering another light in the coming weeks!

Worth Every Penny! Do Not Hesitate!

I live on a north-facing hill facing north northwest, and the interior quality of light was absolutely miserable, and my plants, unhappy. I bought the lights as much for my mood as well as for my large tillandsia collection. My first light, (which I got two weeks ago) was a gift, a large pendant. My mood lifted considerably immediately. By the time day 4 rolled around my plants perked up as if they were freshly watered! I bought two more pendants only a couple days ago, a large and a small. I installed them in minutes and I am beyond thrilled!!! I plan on buying three more pendants and a track light in the nearest possible future, it has completely changed the vibe of the house already.
