Setting up a Basic Indoor Grow Room

Much like the garden outside growing indoors does not have to be complex nor expensive. In order to enjoy gardening inside you will need three things, Soil, Light and Seeds.

What is the best potting mix
What kind of light do you need to grow food indoors
What kinds of plants can you grow during the winter

    Really appreciate this info. It was straight-up and to the point. I dont really have this type of lighting and I have been experimenting with growing in pots by every window. However, I get lots of bugs (fruitfly-like) and wondered about whether I should continue.
    You have answered many questions I have pondered. Thank you.

    So I need to switch the 100 watt regular bulb to a LED bulb that I have? I am using a grow tent. I thought the 100 watt would be more like sun light and I would use it 12 hours per day with a small fan running in the grow tent. Is this wrong? Help! I just put the plants in yesterday.

    You had me at seeing your IMAC; if it’s not Apple it’s cr-p! Basically, it’s just OSX vs. DOS, do your homework people!

    Hello! I’d like to get some help for my plants. I live in a tiny condo with lots of natural light but no direct sunlight for 9 months a year. Next to a large window I have a little pine, a little lemon tree, some gardenias and many more plants. They’ve survived previous winters, but they get “sad” without sunlight and some of them tend to go long reaching out for light and weak.
    Do you think LED grow lights could help? Red lights? How many of them?
    Thank you from Buenos Aires!

    What about growing strawberries in a basic pot indoors during winter? I bought a preset strawberry plant with soil and pot in July. 1 of 3 survived and is doing well, but has not sprouted flowers for it’s first crop. During the winter, is there anything I should do to protect the plant from any cold from the window? The sunlight is coming from a slight north west to north east direction. Thanks for your help.

    What brand of soil and compost do you use?

  18. Kay Ruth on December 16, 2020 at 10:09 pm

    Growing SPINACHE indoors would be good, you can harvest part of it but leave some leaves so the can still get their sunlight but it will grow back again in a few weeks. Called cut and come again, lettuce varieties also do the same thing💝☺

    Good information
    But your voice is annoying. Like when u heighten your sentence at the end, that’s annoying as shyt

    What window do I use if I’m in the middle? Not quite northern and not quite southern?

    Thank you for making these great videos. Hope all is well with you. It is really cool to come across someone from my town who deals with the long cold winters. Growing food at home fascinates me. I’ve had some success with raised garden beds but I need to increase drainage. Thanks again. Great work with growing your own food.

    good info ‘well done ”

  29. DrAlbert Pakin on December 16, 2020 at 10:21 pm

    Great video but dude you look like you are scared of the camera.

  30. Zaka Pentax on December 16, 2020 at 10:24 pm

    Tests has showen plants started indoors are less potent than plants started later outdoors

  31. Anita Loyd on December 16, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Sharing information and thank you for sharing love.

  32. Zach Morris on December 16, 2020 at 10:26 pm

    Used coffee grounds make a great compost aswell. Sometimes you can get free used grounds at a coffee store.

  37. Zaka Pentax on December 16, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    3:10 LMAOOOOOOOOOOOO your wrong, but the sun’s spectrum and intensity is way overpowered for plants, so they made the light but just as concept cause it has to much useless power

  38. Hyder's Adventures on December 16, 2020 at 10:32 pm

    How did you record the panning time lapse? That was very cool!

  39. Defect on December 16, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Excellent video. It’s hard growing indoors in an Alberta winter with townhouse windows that rarely see sunlight.

  40. ganga pokhrel on December 16, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    Cool information i like it❤

  41. Pelly Williamson on December 16, 2020 at 10:33 pm

    This video was one of the best videos I’ve seen. Can you please tell me what did you use to record your audio? It flowed nicely throughout the whole video

  42. Katelin Travelbee on December 16, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    LED lights are more expensive at first but they use less electricity, so less expensive there

  43. Baysik on December 16, 2020 at 10:35 pm

    You should stop talking like a news reporter . It’s too monotone. Be yourself

  44. Karen W on December 16, 2020 at 10:36 pm

    My mom has sunlight bulbs she uses because she needs more whatever u get from the sun. I wonder if these types of bulbs would work

    Direct, to the point, keeping things simplistic & inexpensive, great voice…Yep! I’m a new subscriber. Thanks a lot! I do have a question. Which potting soil & compost would you suggest? I’m totally clueless & new to growing anything! Thanks again.

  50. Valerie Sanchez on December 16, 2020 at 10:42 pm

    I like to use the jobe’s fertilizer spikes. Makes my life easier that way
