      I got a plant kit from a friend of mine for christmas. And I was all excited and stuff so I followed the directions to plant them and was all happy and kept watering and caring for them… Until I realized I over watered my plants.

      x.x Only one of the pots sprouted anything. And I have two extra pots of moist soil… Any suggestions as to what I could plant in there like would putting cucumber seeds or strawberry seeds (like right after you eat them*) work?

      Lettuce is a great pot plant. 1 head will fill the pot and looks lovely. You can pick the leaves off for your salad and let the plant keep growing.

      I do this in the winter and we get lots of salads off of it. We grow several different kinds and go around and pick a few leaves off each one to make a lovely salad. I grew stuff like kale before and my son would trade the pots off in his lizards cage.

      She loved it! We traded off between 3 pots so they’d have time to regrow. Parsley, basil, and other herbs grow good in pots also.

      I’ve even grown baby carrots in pots when I lived in an apartment. And green onions too! cucumbers are a vine and also real picky about needing very warm temps so not the best thing for a pot.

      Radishes would work though! Put you finger in the soil mix and don’t water until the first inch is dry. Have fun!

      Great info brchbell! I’ve been wanting to try to grow some things in my apartment, but everything I try dies. 🙁 I’ll have to try again.

      I’d love to have fresh veggies & herbs! 🙂

      I like to keep chives growing all the time, I like them better than onions.

      I really never thought about growing carrots in a pot.. What a neat idea, I’ve had about everything else in my growing pots.

      Sweet potato makes a beautiful plant. When my boys were little we did this – put toothpicks around sweet potato & suspend in water. After it sprouted we aqdded food coloring to the water.

      Very unusual when all the vines and leaves are blue!!!
