My Kitchen Doesn’t Get Much Natural Light. Can I Still Have Kitchen Plants?
If your kitchen doesn’t get much sun, choose kitchen plants that are tolerant of low light conditions such as Snake Plants. You could also mount LED grow lights under your cabinets to give your smaller kitchen plants an extra boost.
What Is The Best Way To Water Kitchen Plants?
The great thing about keeping plants in the kitchen is the convenient access to the kitchen sink! You can water your kitchen plants by removing them from their decorative pots and placing them in the (empty) sink. Run each plant under the tap until the water seeps from the bottom of the pot, and then allow it to rest for around 15 minutes until all the water has drained through. This will keep your plants hydrated and help prevent them from getting root rot.
