The life changing indoor plant tip

Tuesday, September 30, 2014


Fancy making sure that the next plant you buy will last you for a long time? Just swap from regular watering to ice cube watering. It's that simple!

I started doing it about 3 weeks ago, after I spotted Elise's tip and weirdly our plants and herbs are even happier - especially the orchid and our new hanging spider plant. The awesome part about ice cubes it that the ice melts slowly, giving the plant and dirt time to properly absorb the water without overwatering it. Nowadays, I just drop one or two bigger ice cubes every 4-6 days to each plant and I am set. Try it, it will make all the difference. xo

P.S: And here is one for fresh-cut flowers.

I've been doing this with my baby orchids since a friend told me this tip! Isn't it handy? And it's so simple! Pop, pop and you're done!

Definitely will try this, I recently managed to kill my succulent (yes, it can be done...), and I am planning on buying a new victim :-)

This is sooooo smart! I always have a harder time gauging how much to water my indoor plants vs. my outdoor garden. xo, Katie
