Use cooking water (water that you have boiled eggs in, or cooked spaghetti, etc.) to water your plants. Make sure it has cooled completely. It not only saves on water, it's great for the plants as well.

You can also use the water that you have boiled potatoes in, just make sure it is cool before adding to your ivy plants, these plants love the starch from the potatoes and the potato water will make the plants shine really pretty. (07/28/2006)
I tried this one time, I believe it was water from macaroni and it ended up killing some of my house plants. (04/26/2009)
Using water from macaroni should have not killed your plants. Was the water cool when you used it? It needs to be. Water that is warm to you or I can damage the plants. Also was the water salt free? Most people add salt to their water before cooking their pasta. Salt can kill your plants.
