Is the herb Arugula a small enough plant to grow indoors on a window sill?
If you are replacing old wooden ones.. First you must remove the interior and exterior trim that is attached to the sill, then, you cut a 2" section out of the center of the sill, so you can pull out one side at a time, you will first put a crowbar under one side and lift it above the height of the …other side, then pull them in from the interior, once it is out just cut the new sill to size usually a sill has two pieces I find it easier to attach the "nose" after the main sill because the nose usaully has to be a little larger. After the sill is in replace the trim(interior and exterior) and caulk all seams well and you are done. Braselton,Ga. (MORE)

Arugula ( Eruca sativa ), is an edible annual plant, commonly known as salad rocket, roquette, rucola, rugula, or colewort. It is a member of the Brassicaceae family that includes kale, collards, turnip, mustard, Brussels sprouts, bok choy, napa cabbage, rapini, and watercress, among other amazing… vegetables. Arugula is native to the Mediterranean region, from Morocco and Portugal in the west to Lebanon and Turkey in the east. In addition to the leaves, the flowers (often used in salads as an edible garnish), young seed pods, and mature seeds are all edible. Many people mistake arugula for lettuce, but it is actually an herb. It has a smooth, dark green leaf, similar to that of the dandelion. Its flavor is peppery and mustardy, and it is often used in salads, on sandwiches, or mixed in pasta sauces. It is available year-round in the produce section of most retail grocery stores. Wash your arugula thoroughly upon bringing it home from the store, as it picks up a lot of sand and dirt when it grows. (MORE)
I think you mean what size pot would be best to grow a small plant in? for a miniature plant (6 inches in diameter) use a 2 inch pot, for a little bigger use a 3 inch pot (6 to 8 inch in dia.) plant.
Although this seems a very simple question, the answer is quite complex. I recommend you go to your local library, check out several good books on basic gardening, and at least one specifically on herbs. Do your research including zone, water needs, sun exposure and hardiness. Prepare your herb …bed carefully and then plant away. Any number of people I know started out growing herbs for their kitchen and have expanded to gardening for their flowers, fruit, and vegetables. The one bit of advice I can give you is put a 50 cent plant in a 5 dollar hole and you will get good results every time... if you reverse that ratio, you are looking at disappointment more often than not... Happy gardening. (MORE)

There are dozens of plants that will do well in hot sunny window boxes. Two of my favourites are Rosemary and Nasturtium. . Rosemary is one of the most fragrant of the culinary herbs and comes in both up-right and prostrate (low growing or trailing) forms. The leaves of this plant is great in soup…s and pasta sauces. It loves the sun and is drought tolerant. It is however not a plant that will over winter in cold climates. . Nasturtiums are bright annuals that grow on vines, come in yellows, oranges and reds. These little plants thrive on neglect, in fact if you fertilise them you won't get as many flowers on them. Both the leaves and flowers are edible and have a crisp peppery flavour that goes well in salads. (MORE)

Fluorescent lighting does help plants grow but sometimes the plants are too far away from the plant to provide enough light to produce really healthy leaves and blossoms. The proper distance is between 6 to 8 inches for miniature type plant varieties and 8 to 14 inches for larger varieties. Possibly… you might place plants on a shelf or rack and attach fluorescent fixture with bulbs on the shelf above so lights are above plants. Some shelves are adjustable. You can purchase if needed the in expensive shop light and one warm and one cool bulb 40 watts. I did try the plant and aquarium bulbs but was not happy with the results. (MORE)

A small plant that is just starting to grow is called a seedling.Seedlings are very small plants that can easily be destroyed.
Knowing the temperature range during winter months would go a long way to determine this. Also the parallel would give a good indicator , for comparison to other regions around the globe , then research the types of herbs that grow in those region's. Here are some hardy herbs that grow in a wide ran…ge of climes. Sage , Rosemary , Thyme, to name a few. I live in Surrey , B.C. Canada , and have these herbs in pots , the Lambs Ear Sage has survived - 15 deg. C. , and has been growing for 8 yrs. , just the other day I went out and picked some leaves for a dish. The Rosemary died last year in that cold. the Thyme barely hangs in, but comes back in spring. The fact these are fairly woody, mature plants , I believe helped. So I believe you should , with care , be able to raise other types. (MORE)

A potted plant is growing on a window sill in bright light The plant is rotated one-half turn each morning How would this turning affect the way the plant's stems grow?
Because if it didn't the leaves on the side not getting as much sunlight would not be able to photosynthesize as easily, where as if you turn it then each area of the plant will get as much access to the sunlight in order to carry out photosynthesis, providing you water it that is. NOTE: Plants only… ever have one stem - the long bit in the middle that holds it all together i.e is attached to the roots so is firmly planted in the ground, keeps the flower and leaves on too. The leaves are main parts in the ability to live for the plant as they contain chloroplasts in order for the plant to grow. (MORE)

Even though the plant surfaces will try to turn towards the sun not all can make it. SO it is necessary to assist the plant by turning it from time to time.
The answer can be specific to the room in which the sill is located. In the kitchen, a collection of decorative spice containers is a nice accent. Depending upon how the room is decorated, the decoration should correspond with the theme of the room. In a living room, one might place small plants …in pots. I've seen cactus plants in very, very small pots and if care for properly, last years. In a bedroom, one might consider decorative items that relate to the evening, given that this is the room spent, primarily, for sleeping, and one other activity that ends in "ING." Kidding aside, a stars and moon collection of baubles might look nice. Bathroom, some people use the underwater world as a nice form of ornamentation.
