  • All you need:
    medium and large pots that drain as the plants grow to maturity.
    -Fertilizer
    -you'll definitely need a grow light that can be placed very close to the plants.

  • Most salad greens don't need tons of direct light and don't like heat. They can also be grown in fairly shallow containers, but do benefit from wide spacing.

  • Herbs are a great starter plant to grow indoors, and incredibly useful. Most herbs like to shoot their roots deep, so be sure to plant them in pots at least 8 inches deep. Also prune the herbs that flower to prevent the leaves from getting too bitter.

  • Garlic is pretty difficult to grow in containers, but garlic greens are as easy as buying a bulb of garlic from the grocery store and sticking one of the cloves in dirt. Literally, that's about it.

  • green onions will also grow rapidly with only a few inches of root and a cup of water, changed daily. Though you can continue regrowing a few times, you might want to consider eventually transferring to dirt if you want a heartier, healthier plant.

  • Root veggies are hearty and fairly easy to grow. You'll need a pot that as at least twice the depth of the mature root veggie, so a carrot that grows to 4 inches would need 8 inches of depth.
