    This is great work and I encourage this . Its something a lot of houses do in Kerala already and I have seen it.great work.My only question is when you say mix soap powder with chilly isn’t there chemicals in the soap and as a result I think I wouldn’t call it organic.Isn’t spraying compost tea an alternate option and a better one? I recently came across a company called BioBee which uses nature and other insects to naturally fight off pests.

    Thanks for inspiring and supporting us "micro farmers." ¬†I love knowing there are others out there who are trying their hand at growing their own food. ¬†My daughter and I enjoy your videos. ¬†We started growing mint on our terrace two years ago and have graduated to lemon verbena, rosemary, thyme, parsley, tomatoes and cherry tomatoes, white potatoes, chives, green beans, sweet and hot peppers, kale, lettuce, garlic, onions, squash, fennel, oats, watermelon, cucumbers, carrots, and now we’ve added grapes. ¬†Between all the veggies, my daughter has added flowers — petunias, plumbago, roses, gardenias, and more, to attract pollinators. The formerly empty terrace is now the center of our home, where we have tea, eat lunch and meditate every day. ¬†Our visitors absolutely love it as well. ¬†So, thanks for your efforts, Lakshmi.

    very bad technique…. sorry for saying that but I think the potting mix is not at all good and when you spray the soap water it isn’t organic any more…. there is no need for the drainage in the the containers until you have good no. of holes…. :/

  29. Milan Kumar 2017-12-19 at 5:36 AM - Reply

    Very interesting indeed. I have also developed an organic terrace garden on the seventh floor of our building (In Mumbai) by recycling kitchen waste and other waste like plastic, discarded building bamboos, brick debris etc. This video will show that you can get amazing yields even in pots on a terrace. Here’s the link.

    The audio sucks in this video.

  31. lohith h 2017-12-19 at 5:37 AM - Reply

    nice video to motivate starters. but its not good at all to use plastics for growing veggies because of BPA and hell no for used paint buckets lot of heavy metal contamination, the whole point of being organic will be screwed. It is always better and safe to use earthen pots for growing veggies..

    I hear so many good things about that coco peat/coir she used am sure easier to find in India as they produce it there ,hard to find here in southern california gonna have to¬† mail order it in small bricks..they say it doesn’t get hard or dry up like peat moss does where you can’t get water to flow into your dirt in containers good for making mix for houseplants too..enviroment friendly .anyone understand about how to make that plant oil I barely could understand don’t want to make it too strong or use wrong ingredients..can I use any dry chiles? how much oil /garlic etc ..
