Try these easy-to-grow potted plants:
- Aloe Vera
Known for its ability to soothe burns and re-hydrate skin, and it's one of the easiest potted plants to care for especially if you're super busy. It requires several hours of direct sunlight and watering only twice per month to thrive. It is tolerant of climate changes but bring it inside during a freeze.
- Pole Beans
Pole beans grow well in a large pot if they're trained on a trellis or tepee made from bamboo poles. Plant the seeds 2 to 3 inches apart. The pot should be at least 14 inches high and the temperature of the soil should be at least 60 degrees.
Plant seeds 1 to 2 inches apart in soil that's at least 55 degrees. The pot should be at least 14 inches high because carrots have long roots.
- Companion Planted Herbs
Select herbs that grow well together like oregano and thyme. Because they are both from the same Mediterranean climate they require similar conditions. Plant them in a shallow pot so that the soil will remain warm throughout. Herbs grow fast and should begin to be harvested in about a month.
You truly don't even need to plant many varieties of lettuce in the ground at all and they often sprout all year round. They do need a lot of sun so move the pot around the house so that it's constantly getting sunlight.
