Can you grow Radishes indoors?


Yes you can, and if you provide the right light and the right soil you can actually have radishes ready to eat in 1-2 months. This makes radishes one of the easiest plants to grow and harvest inside, although you need quite a big planter to have enough radishes for a salad 🙂

RapidLapse brings us a nice time lapse that shows us you can actually harvest some types of radishes in as little as 31 days. It can be done in small pots or containers with very little maintenance. This timelapse video is interesting because the plant looks like it is dancing while growing out of seed. For a speedy growth, you can jump start the seeds by soaking them in paper towels for 24 hours prior to planting.

Although radishes dont need fertilizers, RapidLapse used Osmocote pellets added on the surface of the soil periodically. The pellets last for 6 months as they slowly decompose into fertilizers.
