Tip for Keeping Plants Well Watered

Category House Plants

Here is a dynamite tip for keeping potted plants well watered:

It might sound crazy but try this - Cut a small disposable diaper in half, lay it plastic side down in the pot after placing half of your soil in the bottom of the pot. Cover with the rest of your soil and whatever you are planting. The plant will retain much more moisture and your plant will not need to be watered near as much!! It really works!

You can buy the pellets at your local discount store in there gardening section. It is much cheaper to buy the pellets then to diaper a plant.
