Apartment People

Recommended Posts

I'd like to see more of what people are doing in tiny spaces. I don't care if you're growing palms or vegetables or flowers or whatever. I can't be the only one on Palmtalk in an apartment, living off of grow lights and limited space. 

 

I've been all over YouTube and seen what can be done.

 I grow everything on my patio, I don't have any direct sun but can grow a lot. My washes despise the low light, I think my sabal is growing faster even, I have both washingtonia several sabals, a majesty, some date palms and a dypsis lutescens, I dont use grow lights either.

I do grow lights indoors. I dunno if you've watched my YouTube vids but I think I've got a lot for a studio apartment. Indoors I get virtually zero light since my only windows are in the French doors.

Same here, have lived in two different apartments in the last year.

One had no direct sunlight, the other had direct sunlight but was multiple stories off ground and my seedlings would get absolutely wrecked every time it was windy and now half my Washingtonias have broken fronds. One benefit of the place that had no direct sun is if I parked my car below my balcony the sun would reflect off rear window and hit my palms on there balcony for a bit each day.

Just have to have a good grow light and its not the worst option.

Also getting little tables to place palms on helped me conserve space so that im not jamming them super close together
