Life Alive Garden: Lessons for Indoor Planting

About a half an hour ago I walked into the Cambridge location of one of my favorite places to eat. Life Alive is a local vegetarian eatery that has another location in Lowell, Massachusetts. I tagged along for the ride with a friend who is taking a class nearby. I basically needed a change of writing location and pace… and I certainly got one. I didn't have a post topic in mind when I got here, but immediately found one when I walked through the doors.
 
Life Alive has some pretty great indoor gardens. It is a little space, but they have found a way to grow lots of pretty things in very clever ways, and I immediately realized that there are a lot of lessons to share here.

A Couple of Additional Tips:
Like the looks of the Bamboo plants in the palm leaf pot? Check out this post for achieving something similar - very simply. (Hint: Burlap bag + 5 gallon bucket = beautifully done.)
 
Also - Taro root bulbs can be purchased quite inexpensively in specialty food markets. They produce the Elephant ear plant — generally not the exact variety seen in the picture with the white veins, but equally pretty.
