If we talk about the kind of plants that are suitable to grow in a kitchen then Mint, Green Chilli and Coriander plants can come under this category. These small plants have health benefits and are useful as per Vastu shastra.
But I think if you want to grow the plant as your hobby, then don’t think much. Even I have grown Green Chilli plant for having Home - made chillies. Afterall Growing our own plants give lot of joy!!!
