In An Indoor Hydroponic Garden
Arugula isn't only delicious on sandwiches, bagels, and salads, but it's also super simple to grow in a hydroponic garden—a technique that doesn’t require soil—and like other leafy greens, it's packed with good things such as vitamin K and iron. Arugula becomes weedy in a traditional garden, so planting it indoors this way offers multiple benefits.
When grown outdoors, rosemary can show off a large and bushy shape; however, if you only need to use a few sprigs occasionally, you can grow it as a small plant in a hydroponic garden. Keeping herbs like this available on your kitchen counter can help you save money at the grocery store on fresh and dried herbs.
Bok Choy
Bok choy is a type of cabbage that is typically used in Asian dishes; its leaves and stems are edible whether they are cooked or kept raw. It's a good idea to grow it in your indoor hydroponic garden because it loses quality in storage in less than 14 days.
The basil plant is used in a wide variety of recipes, which makes it so valuable in the kitchen. You can grow many different cultivars of the plant simultaneously for different flavors and textures; some of the most commonly grown varieties of basil include Italian basil, Greek basil, Anise basil, and Thai basil.
Thyme is a common herb that is most often used in the kitchen but also has some medicinal uses, which makes it a perfect addition to your indoor hydroponic garden. It grows fast and requires low maintenance; as long as you provide it with water and liquid fertilizer, it will require little attention over its lifespan.
