Watering Hanging House Plants

Water hanging plants with a few ice cubes, rather than the watering pail. The cubes will melt slowly and will be absorbed whereas water poured in often runs straight through and pours out.


You can also take your houseplants outside for a drink of rainwater when it rains. Only do this if there is no chance of freezing. Rainwater helps flush out accumulated salts and minerals from tap water buildup.

Use ice cubes to water hanging plants so they don't drip. The cubes melt slowly, and the water is absorbed into the soil, rather than running straight through and dripping out of the pot.

I water the plants at work in the lobby with ice cubes because they melt slowly and all the water goes into the soil....
