How much light your kitchen receives?
This is the first and most important step that will decide whether you can grow plants in your kitchen or not. Does your kitchen have a window that receives some amount of direct sunlight? South facing window would be best. It’s simple, the more sunlight the better. If your kitchen window receives indirect sun you’ll need to grow plants that grow without direct sunlight.
Which plants can you have in the kitchen?
Plants that can survive changes in temperature and air currents are best. Outdoor plants, if they are placed in a location with good ventilation and lighting can adapt easily into the kitchen, but be sure to remove them a few days abroad.
Grow herbs on a kitchen window
The kitchen is the ideal place to grow herbs. Grow herbs on a kitchen windowsill or in a hanging basket. Herbs will not only decorate your kitchen but you’ll get fresh leaves handily to prepare delicious dishes.

Herbs such as rosemary, lavender, basil, parsley, lemon balm, lemon grass, mint, oregano, cilantro, and thyme are easy to grow. You can also plant scented geraniums, African violet, begonia and impatiens to enjoy the beautiful flowers. In edibles, small and easy to grow plants like ginger, garlic, green onions, spinach are perfect options. You can also try to grow a lemon tree.
Easiest kitchen plants
The easiest kitchen plants you can have are aloes, snake plant, pothos, philodendrons, ferns, spider plant, ivies and much more. You can also combine these or herbs with other ornamental plants to decorate your kitchen and to make the cooking more enjoyable.
