The 9 Most Common Problems Facing Indoor Gardens

It can be frustrating when something goes wrong in your indoor garden despite all of your hard work. You may be unknowingly be doing something that is having a detrimental effect on your plants. Take a look at this list of the most common problems that can arise when cultivating a garden indoors.

  1. Lack of Ventilation: Leaves cannot function correctly without a steady supply of fresh air; Poor ventilation causes slow growth and poor absorption of water and nutrients.
  2. Inadequate Lighting: This can slow down photosynthesis which leads to poor use of nutrients, and give the plants a scrawny appearance.
  3. Too High / Too Low Humidity: Either one of these conditions will cause stress to the plants from over-consumption or under-consumption of water.
  4. Temparature: A low or high temperature can slow a plant’s growth, and wide temperature fluctuations of more than 15 to 20 degrees can retard growth altogether.
  5. Overwaterting / Underwatering: Overwatering prevents the roots from taking in air, severely limiting nutrient intake and possibly causing them to rot. Underwatering slows the transport of nutrients, ultimately leading to sickly / dying roots.
  6. Light Burns: Foliage burned by HID Lamps is at an increased risk of attack from pests and disease.
  7. Indoor Air Pollution: This can slow plant growth to a crawl. Make an effort to check for vaporization from building materials and other chemical air leaks.
  8. Hot Soil: Soil over 90 degrees can cause harm to a plant’s roots.
  9. Roots Receving Direct Light: Roots require a dark environment; Light shining through to them can turn them green and their function will slow significantly.

Tarot Gardening – The Beckoning Spiritual Shop

The outside of ones spiritual shop beckons to cars or strollers in the area of who you are, what they may expect inside the shop and how they will be treated once inside. A plain uninteresting entrance or yard represents mediocreship. A fascinating and eye appealing entrance is remembered and offers a clue of the individuality and care the light worker inside will give. To create an inviting spiritual entrance a few elements of sight, sound and balance should be considered.

  • Sculpture that depicts ones life mission {Art}
  • Chimes that speak the voice of your spirit {Sound}
  • Floral and herbs {Color and Scent}
  • Feng Shui energy principles {Balance}
  • Tarot or spiritual communication tools {Spirit}

We all understand that the way we take care of our body greatly influences our health and attitude. In this same way, years of historical experiences occurring on a piece of land takes its toll on the growth of foliage and the energetic way we feel when we are standing on it. For this reason I suggest the first thing to do when planning a spiritual entrance or shop yard It really does not matter what tool you use to get to know your garden spirit. Whether you arrange a spiritual gathering alone or with a group of light workers that combine their gifts with Tarot, Runes, Crystals or pure Channeling, here are some questions to ask your garden spirit.


  • Who are you? What do you want us to know about you?
  • Are you male, female or animal?
  • How do you want to be remembered?
  • How can we best honor you?

If the answers you receive are positive it will give you an idea of the kind of entrance you may want to design, or whether to have an energetic cleansing first. Remember that land spirit has been here much longer then you have been and it is always a good idea to honor history. Harmonizing with your land spirit increases the potential for happiness, success, friends and profit.

If the reading on the land indicates much sadness, anger or despair you would be wise to perform a clearing with sage, drums and bells. Think of the ancient Native Americans and the bond with the land they held sacred. In this same way, so should you honor the land your shop sits on by releasing its blocked, stagnant historical pressure. You may do this ceremony alone, or hire someone else to lead. It would be wise to be present as the clearing is taking place.


What is your personal life mission? How did the reading on your land resonate with your goal? Choose an aesthetically pleasing symbol of what you and your garden spirit stand for as Light Workers. You may also, instead of a sculpture, choose a pleasing bench or swing for friends to sit on, a kinetic wind wheel, or a garden gate entrance into your realm.


The sound of your wind chimes represents your voice. Be cautious of representing your self through out of tune, clanging noise. If you must have more then one set of chimes, make sure they harmonize like a choir. The sound of bamboo is a subtle voice that can harmonize with metal, ceramic or glass wind chimes.

For sunny shop entrances, plant an herbal pathway to your door and fill window boxes with lovely scented flowers or herbs. Envelop your clients and visitors in the sweet aroma of Basil, Lavender or Thyme. All pathways should be free of clutter for energy to flow in and out of your shop. There is nothing quite as evasive to clients as the smell of cigarettes or kitty boxes as they walk in a home based business. Living with bad smells gives the impression you may live with bad patterns, an indication you do not walk your talk as a spiritual light worker. Your “persona” and “representation” is marketed through your entrance or yard and is the inspiration for people driving or walking by your beckoning spiritual shop.
