Breeding plants that are able to survive in different environmental conditions or when attacked by diseases or pests has occurred for thousands of years as people gradually domesticated the plants that they needed to use for food or as ornamentals. Generally this breeding involved identifying a trait in another related species that could then be used as the donor of this trait to the domestic plant they wished to improve.
It is possible to set up an indoor growing area just about anywhere in your house, shed or garage. Here are a few suggestions of places that might be suitable and point out some of the plant’s essential needs that must be taken into account when setting up.

We have grouped the growing conditions under the four headings of Light, Temperature, Humidity and Atmosphere.
