Spinach and salad small plants

About two months ago, we had a TetraPak gardening class at work. During this class we learned how to seed and care for spinach (left in the above picture) and salad (right) plants in a 1L milk box.

Plants after a couple of weeks They grew quite slowly. This was after one week.

But these were just short term "gar­den­ing" ex­per­i­ments. I also wanted to try my hand at keeping a plant alive for longer term.

Flower after some caring

So after a week I also bought a Hibiscus flower, because that's what the lady from the gardening shop said was low-main­te­nance. We'll judge that by how long it will survive :))

So far it has survived a month and a half in my hands and it seems to be doing well enough :D And it's also a great test subject for my new camera :D

It was nice to be able to grow my own food. I am looking forward to the next harvest of my salad and I actually have a couple more pots that need to be filled (and a 10 liter bag of soil that needs to be used :-"), so I need some sug­ges­tions on what else to plant. Feel free to recommend something in the comments.
