Sponges take a long time to decompose, so I always try to find ways to reuse them. Luckily, I found this super tip on Youtube from simple & fast that reuses old sponge to retain the moisture in plants much longer. This tip will save lots of plants, especially if you like to travel and no one would water them. Watch the video below to learn how this works.
Let the sponge soak in water with a little dishwashing soap for one hour, then rinse it well. Remove the green part, then cut the sponge into small pieces. Now, get your plant pot, put some soil at the bottom, then put some pieces of the sponge. Combine it with the soil using your hands. After this, transfer the plant into the prepared pot.
Fill the pot with more soil, then water the plant generously. The sponge will help retain the moisture much longer and fertilizer will also last longer in the soil.
