Creating an indoor, temperature and humidity controlled hydroponics setup. Wanted advice on whether I can grow the following:

  • Vanilla Planfolia

  • Saffron (Crocus sativus)

I was also wondering if anybody knew the optimal conditions to grow these plants. I would need the following info:

  • Humidity

  • Temperature

  • Watering information (I'll be using a drip system)

  • Lighting (I will be using LED solar lights (Red and Blue))

Thank you very much

They will need different conditions.

Vanilla is a tropical vine and a shade tolerant plant. An orchid.

Saffron Crocuses, full sunlight, not as much moisture, may require a wider range of conditions. Being a bulb crop they may need a dormant period.

So these two could not be grown in the same space.
