Refresh Your House Plants

Take advantage of a light rain and set your houseplants outside. Just like giving them plant food and you don't have to pay for it. Helps keep the plants clean, too!

Place houseplants outdoors during a rain to catch the rainwater. Rainwater will help flush out accumulated salts from tap water, too.

My problem----------Don't forget to take them back inside. Needless to say I don't have a green thumb.

Also, water your plants with warm water. I never did that until the last month and my begonia has started blooming non-stop now.

This sounds like a good idea. I am thinking that a person can catch rain water to use on the house plants instead of house water. It would help the plant to not get so much salt build up.

I use a waste banana skin to polish Aspidistra leaves, and my aquarium's filter waste water is used to feed my house plants

My daughter-in-law uses mayonnaise and rubs down the leaves of her plants with it. Makes it clean and shiny!
P.S. I did think she was crazy when she told me about it though.
