Water Your Plants With Ice Cubes

Fast, easy, and no spills on your furniture. Cubes melt slowly so the plant doesn't get overwatered. One normal size ice cube per 4 inch pot. The kind of plant drives the frequency of watering. Mild fertilizer can be made into cubes as well, follow the instructions on the fertilizer by mixing it according to package directions. Pour mixture into ice cube tray and freeze. After cubes have been frozen, place into a bag, label, and set aside in the freezer where they won't be mistaken for a drink ice cube!

Watering with ice cubles could save your furniture but will surely damage the plant if not kill it. The temperature of water when watering a plant must be the same as the room temperarure and in any case higher than 50 ° F ( 10° C). A plant can die from hydrocution (immersion syndrome) if watered with cold water, just like a human being.

The best way is to let the water you use to water your plants in a bottle next to them, between two waterings. You must take the same care when misting a plant. Apart from the temperature of the water, it is a good thing to do not water at the foot of the plant but to water along the side of the pot only, it will force the plant to use the full size of the pot, as its roots will try to reach the most moistured parts.
