Light Levels
The most important thing in apartment gardening is knowing what your light exposure is, says Laurelynn Martin, co-owner of Logee’s Plants for Home & Garden. “If you know the exposure of your windows, you can figure out what type of plants to grow,” she says. “Southern exposure and full sun allow you to grow just about anything.

Ambient apartment temperatures are fine for most houseplants. Place plants where they won’t experience drafts—away from heating or cooling vents and exterior doors. In northern regions in winter, air near windows can be significantly colder, especially at night.

Aim for a relative humidity of 50 percent or higher. In most apartments, humidity usually falls into the 30 to 40 percent range. The exception occurs in winter when dry air drives humidity to 10 to 20 percent.

As you select plants for your apartment garden, consider ones that put on a show with little care. “Citrus are great plants because they can be kept relatively small, have fragrant flowers and bear fruit at a young age,” Laurelynn says. “Meyer lemon makes a great first citrus.”
