Living the RV lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all of the comforts and conveniences you love about your brick-and-mortar home. If you love the look and feel of having live plants in your home, you can have them in your home on wheels too. These three plant options are easy to grow in your RV and can survive the stresses of life on the road.
It may seem impossible to garden in your RV, but a number of new gardening inventions have made it easier than ever before. The Topsy Turvy tomato planter is the perfect way to grow fresh tomatoes on the go. The upside down planter means you can hang your tomatoes from your RV or awning when you arrive at your destination, and enjoy the fruits of your labor throughout your travels. According to Consumer Reports, the Topsy Turvy yields roughly the same quality and quantity of tomatoes as a traditional planter.
Make a Terrarium
A terrarium is an easy and mess-free way to bring plants into your home on wheels. Succulents and cacti grow well in terrariums as long as you use an open container that doesn’t trap humidity. Add some sand to the potting mix you use for your succulents and cacti to mimic their natural environment.
Hanging plants are especially handy when traveling in an RV, because they can’t tip over and dirty your floors or furniture. Grape Ivy, or Ellen Danica, is known as oak leaf ivy, and it’s very easy to grow. Grape Ivy is technically a vine, but it looks gorgeous and only requires medium light between the temperatures of 65 and 80 degrees.
