A lot of water that goes down the drain can be used to water plants. Water that you use to steam vegetables, cook potatoes or boil eggs can be reused to water your plants. Also, when you clean out your aquarium you can use that water to water your plants.

I have a lot of houseplants, so when I water, I start in the same place and go right around the house, always in the same order, checking and watering as needed. This way, no one gets forgotten.

Use water with lemon and orange juice (straight out of the oranges) and water it. This helps it grow faster.(

With a busy life and a love for freshness I have found that using empty water bottles (like perrier bottles found in the recycle box at work) washed, rinsed and filled up. Work well. Fill it up, flip it over into the soil about 2 or 3 inches into the soil and tada, watering system that will last up to 5 days for containers. If doing this right in the dirt outside in the garden, or just anywhere you have plants that dry out fast, put the bottle closer to the plant and your go to go for 4 days. As the soil dries, it releases air into the bottle and then releasing the water back into soil.


No need to by fancy balls for this, if you like to decorate them, use tissue paper and MODPOGE or water and glue to match your decor. Sometimes it is hard to remember what an who to water and when, and if your an avid traveler this works even better. Set up 2 bottles and away you go for up to 2 weeks! Also if you do not want a cat using your plants as a litter box, put pine cones in the bottom of the plant base and they do not like the smell or the texture on there little feet.
