Beuna Tomoalino says there are some edible plants that can be grown as houseplants.

She joined us with a few tips about caring for houseplants that are just for beauty (and not eating) and edible houseplants as well.

Pot Size: If re-potting, pot should be 2" larger in diameter

Drainage: Pot should have holes for water to drain

Soil: Use potting soil - not garden soil

Watering: Don't water on a schedule.  Check soil moisture regularly, water as needed.

Placement: Keep away from heat/ cold vents, windows, or doors.

Pest Control: Spray off twice per year with water to control dust and pests.  Be sure to spray under leaves.
