Use Cooking Water for Plants

Instead of dumping water away from spaghetti, vegetable or even flat club soda, feed it to your indoor plants. This will give great nourishment to them for growth and greener plants. Make sure the water is cool.

Just make sure there is no salt in your cooking water. Most house plants are salt intolerant, and salt delivered to them in any way will kill them.

The down side is a smell from the plants (unless you are doing outdoor plants) and also the little bugs/maggots that also thrive on composted garbage. You don't want to start with those in the house. Hard to get rid of once they lay eggs.
