Like humans who need food intake, so do plants that also need nutrients from their roots. For this reason, the selection of media, especially land, is very important. The composition for a good growing media, among others, is that ordinary soil is mixed with coir /wool/sand compost and vermicompost (worm manure) into equal amounts. Apart from that, perhaps you need to make good raised garden beds if you want to have a beautiful garden at home.
Tips for beginners
If gardening is your first experience, what can be done as a guinea pig is to use a medium sized container such as a pan container for planting containers? The types of plants that can be planted include tomatoes and chili. Because the two plants do not need too much care. However, extra patience is needed because it takes several months to grow a lot.
Consider this trial as an exercise before actually starting the planting process with a larger size. Remember, all types of plants can grow on the terrace!
Answering the question of whether all plants can grow in the terrace garden, Dr. Kadur, an Entomologist from India replied, of course, you can. There are several types of plants that can be planted and have good functions such as beans, chilies, tomatoes, eggplant, okra, cucumbers, pumpkins, potatoes, onions, turnips, and carrots. Some types of fruits can also be planted, for example, guava and banana.
Other important things to remember
Finally, the important things to consider are watering regularly. Especially when entering the dry season. Crops need at least twice a day watering. The type of water suggested by Dr. Kadur is rainwater that you have stored in a vessel. It’s because the water is classified as pure and has not been contaminated.
Also, pay attention to the humidity, so don’t do watering when the rainy season arrives because the nutrients are quickly wasted. Besides watering, lighting is also very important for plants. Avoid the too hot sun. Place the plant pot in a place that is not directly exposed to sunlight.
