Use Unwanted Ice for Houseplants

If you drop an ice cube on the floor, don't just toss it into the sink. Place it in a potted plant or your pet's water dish instead. Use the same technique for any leftover cubes in mealtime water glasses.

I have a lot of animals and when I give them fresh water everyday I make sure to water house plants or plants in the yard with the old water in their dishes.

i've read that ice water is bad for plants, it shocks their roots. i put the cubes in a glass to get to room temp first. kind of a pain i know but it's better than a bunch of dead plants.
