When people make the transition from a house with a yard to a RV, many miss their plants and gardens. What some don’t realize is that it is possible to live fulltime on the road with plants. You simply grow smaller plants in pots or hanging baskets. In our RV, we use pots.

Near our kitchen sink, we have a Venus Fly Trap and a Peace Lily. I have noticed a decrease in gnats or other bugs. Also the Peace Lily purifies our air. There is a noticable difference in our air quality since bringing it home.
Try one or more of these to keep your air purified in your RV.
We keep an Aloe Vera plant beside our bathroom sink. We cut a section off when we need to treat burns.

When we are traveling, we stick these small potted plants in the sink. What about growing a graden? We actually have a small garden growing in our bedroom. When traveling, we stick these pots on the toilet room floor or in the shower.

Our garden for this year is just starting out. When the plants get bigger, I will start taking them outside to soak up some direct sun while we are parked in one spot. For now they enjoy plenty of sun through the window. I have to rotate these throughout the day so they grow straight.
I taped extra seeds and instructions on the wall nearby. We have pots for mixed greens, small tomatoes, mini mixed peppers, green onions, and cilantro. I can’t wait to watch these grow!

If you RV, do you have plants in your rig? If you live in a house with no yard, do you have a potted garden on a patio, window sill, or counter? Don’t forget to follow my blog to keep up with our journey.

  1. I have some house plants I really want to bring with us. Unfortunately, I also have a cat who likes to eat most of my house plants. I was thinking of attaching planters to the cupboard doors but the only ones that open out instead of up are over the kitchen area. I’m determined but haven’t figured it out yet!

  2. I definitely plant in my RV. My family is starting to wonder if they will ever get the table back as the seedlings live there currently. We have been full timing for almost 3 years and we have a Class C. Most of the time the plants are outside, but when we move, they sit in the floor along side the slide. The cockpit sadly is the catch all for all computer things, winter clothes, and anything large like his guitar. Storage is still a work in progress and every other month we have to do spring cleaning lol
