Grow Lettuce in Your Living Room - Paperback
We’re proud of this amazing book collaboration between Dan Chiras and Victor Zaderej.
Easy to understand and full of practical advice, Grow Lettuce In Your Living Room is the first of its kind, a truly unique book that will teach you how to grow a wide variety of vegetables indoors in your home, apartment, or condo under LED grow lights using simple, inexpensive passive hydroponics.
You’ll learn four different ways to grow indoors, including growing nutrient-packed microgreens.
The authors will tell you what you need to get started, where to purchase materials, and how much they’ll cost. In plain and simple language, these two scientists will also teach you all you need to know about proper lighting for optimal growth and all you need to know about providing nutrients to your indoor vegetables.
“This is the LED gardening book I’ve been looking for. There are a lot of articles about growing plants with LED lights, but only a few books and none as complete and easy to follow with updated methods as Grow Beets in Your Bedroom. This book shows a way for you to have home-grown vegetables using the latest science-backed LED technology in a way that is healthy, ecologically sustainable, cost-effective, and efficient. Light up your indoor garden and thrive!”
