Hi,

Anyone grow plants for own consumptions? For eg. chilli, aloe vera, etc. What is the easiest plant for a beginner?
I thought of growing my own ingredients but would like to start with one first as i have limited space and also a beginner.

if you go for holiday for a few days, you will need to get someone to help you water the plants everyday, otherwise it might wither. hmmm...it's like a commitment.

If you are asking where are those helping? 1 of them is me but currently too busy and tired. Hopefully, soon to settle down...and can contribute to the neighbour again.
