You can start off with 'easily' herb like mint first. Then add other plants like basil, chilli, tomatoes etc. You can go to the local wet market to buy stalks of mint then put them in a glass of water to root them. Good luck!

Cool, I have a full blown garden with the following grown in hydroponic and traditional methods.

1. 3 types of mint
2. Rosemary
3. Thyme
4. French Beans
5. Tomatoes (2 varieties)
6. Basil (Italian and Thai)
7. Sweet potato
8. Chilli
9. Bell Peppers (4 color types)
10. Snow Peas (Dao Miao)
11. Kang Kong (Water Spinach)
12. Water Melon
13. Coriander (Chinese Celery)
14. lettuce
15. Corn
16. papaya
17. Sunflower

Seems like a lot, but I have a fair bit of land space. I do provide seed exchange as well, do PM me.

Just cut and put in water till roots appear, takes about a week. Then transfer it to soil.
