Second Tip

Are you having problems with growing fungal spores in the plants? Put some baking soda (bicarbonate of soda) into the soil of the plants. This will help prevent blooming spores on the leaves of the plants.


Third Tip

In a mixing jug, put a generous amount of water and some yeast, then mix it well. Pour this into the plant that has dying leaves. You will notice that the plant will be green and healthy again.

Fourth Tip

Peel one large potato and put the peeled skin in a bowl. Cut the peeled potato skin into pieces using a pair of scissors. Pour some water into the bowl, then let it rest for two days. Strain the water into a mixing jug and pour this water into the plants. This will help the plants to grow quickly.

Additional tips:

The first tip, dip the end of a rose stem into honey and stick it to a potato. Plant it in a pot, then cut the leaves and the head of the rose; leaving only the stem. Wait for two to three months and you will have a fresh batch of rose flowers. The second tip, empty a bottle and poke holes all around it. Place succulent leaves in every hole and fill the bottle with water. Wait for four weeks. After this, transfer the leaves that have now grown roots into pots. Wait for another two months before a new succulent plant grows.  The third tip, place a bowl of water next to some drying plants and put a rope from the water to the plants, connecting them. This is ideal for people who travel a lot as this will keep their plants hydrated.
