    A member passed this method of growing herbs onto me and I thought I would share. Like many, I have herbs sprouting plus other stuff on my kitchen windowsill. This is a method that lets you grow herbs indoors. Sometimes herbs grown indoors do not have success like they do when planted outdoors. Non-circulating hydroponics is quite interesting. The author of the article grew mint, which is supposed to be one of the easiest things to grow (some of us have issues).


    Here is what you need:

    Minimum requirements:

    Wide mouth mason jar
    3 inch net pot
    1 inch rockwool cube
    Hydroton clay pellets
    Spray paint (not pictured)
    Plastic grocery bag (not pictured)
    Herb seeds of your choice
    Hydroponic nutrients of your choice (not pictured)

    Please follow the link for instructions. Macro Garden: DIY Mason Jar: Non-Circulating Hydroponics (AKA the Kratky method)

    Also, the comments have some Q & A in there so I would read that also. I am hoping to have success because fresh herbs are wonderful to have on hand.
