Apartments are great places to grow plants, if you know how to do it. Some apartments are facing in unfortunate directions, not fully in sunlight during any time of the day, and so on, but there is still a lot that can be obtained from green apartment living. We recommend that you buy plants which require little to no light, such as succulents, ferns, and ivy, all of which grow quite well under extremely poor conditions.
You can live off of the plants you grow in and outside of your apartment, too. We do not suggest that you can live, day in and day out on your apartment gardening, but it is possible to accomplish great things with a little amount of space.
Some apartment dwellers use hydroponics, which makes it to where the plants do not even need earth, but have a nourishing drip system so that they have both air and energy. However, since many plants behave better and fruit more under the stabilizing effect of soil, that is probably the best way to go.
There are many plants, even mint, which can grow in shadow, so it is a good idea to look at these plants if your apartment is not in an ideal location. You can grow vegetables, like tomatoes and many other vegetables, through apartment gardening if you have a little porch. If you only have the indoors to work with, you can still grow plants outside and inside windows, taking advantage of windows which are well lit throughout the day. However, unless exposed to direct sunlight throughout the day, you may have limited success with growing even tomatoes in your windows.
