Best indoor plants without light

There is a lot of interest in growing high light plants indoors these days and I supposed it’s because as of March 2012, growing Medical Marijuana or Cannabis is legal in 16 states. And even here in Alabama where getting caught growing even one plant will land you in jail for three years, I can find books for sale on the subject at every major book store I’ve visited.

I’ve grown houseplants for years but when I tried hydroponics and I failed miserably. I could grow lettuce and other quick growing plants but when I tried tomato plants they always died when they got larger. I’ve pretty much decided that the small hydroponics kits you see on sale on-line and on eBay may have all of the chemicals you need to grow, but they don’t have what you need to maintain the correct liquid hydroponics cocktail to grow large plants or to grow a plant to flowering or budding stage. The big guys can do hydroponics because they can afford to buy the expensive equipment needed to monitor their chemical solutions.

This article is about growing high light plants like tomatoes, peppers, marijuana, etc indoors without using hydroponics. To be successful you need a bright light source that generates minimum heat and a enclosure to contain and focus the light. Everything you need except for the LED Grow lights should be locally available. We used our own Grow Sun Grow lights in this project because they work very well.

Many plants respond very well to a dose of compost tea. There are at least 5 recipes for every 3 gardeners, but all should include about ten parts water (preferably water that has been allowed to sit 24 hours to outgas chlorine) to one part aged, sifted compost and one tablespoon or so molasses for every gallon of solution. If you have earthworm castings, toss in a shallow palmful. Some include fish emulsion and kelp, but I'd leave these out for indoor plants because the odors can be strong.
Anyway, put everything together and stir (biodynamic folks recommend counterclockwise). Let sit for an hour or two, stirring occasionally; this gives the good microbes in the...
