Five days from seeds to sprouts: tomatoes, bell peppers, and lots of herbs!
Spring is nearly upon us, and it’s time to start planting seeds! Start seeds indoors now for transplant outdoors after the last frost (or start them any time for indoor gardens).
Colored glass rooting jars help start cuttings quickly. The shaded glass shields the roots from direct sun and keeps algae to a minimum. Start ivy, pothos, begonias, coleus, philodendron, herb cuttings, and even African violet leaves in these pretty little vases.
Basil is a very aromatic, bushy annual that grows very well as a house plant. Basil is a staple in the indoor garden, and probably one of the best herbs for hydroponic sytems. Basil stems can be rooted in water and will often grow there happily without ever being transplanted into soil or soilless mix.

You can grow strawberry plants indoors in hanging baskets and pots, in windowboxes, strawberry jars and other containers. If you are wondering how to grow strawberries indoors on a windowsill, under lights or on a lighted plant stand, follow our progress from planting to harvesting.
Growing baby bell peppers indoors in an AeroGarden Pro hydroponic unit. The seeds came from market-bought peppers and are self-pollinating – just shaking the plants gently in the morning pollinates the open flowers. Peppers then form from flower centers.
