"The most important thing to indoor gardening would have to be light requirements and how committed to watering you will be," explains Martinelli. Thankfully, there are plants that can work with just about any lighting scheme (or lack thereof).
If your windows face north, it's safest to invest in plants that don't require a ton of lighting, but if they're south-facing, you can spring for a plant that needs full sun, including fruit and vegetables.
You can also bring in a light supplement if none of that does the trick, but Sevilla notes, "Don't forget to turn it off at night, plants need sleep, too."
