Speaking to various plant experts, Bestlifeonline.com found solutions for any beginner or seasoned plant person to keep their plants alive.

CRUSHED UP PISTACHIO SHELLS

My family and I love pistachios so we have a lot of pistachio shells at home. We use these shells to help keep our potting soil from drying out,” said Craig Miller, an academician with Academia Labs and home gardener in Austin, 德克萨斯州.

What Miller does is crush the pistachio shells and then soak them in water overnight. This process allows the shell to absorb water as much as it can.

The next step is to line the bottom of your plants with the shells to prevent the plants from becoming completely saturated with water.

THE LEFTOVER WATER FROM YOUR BOILED EGGS

The water that remains after you boil eggs is full of calcium, which is important for plant development.

Robin Antill, director at Leisure Buildings advised: “Allow the water to reach room temperature before using it as a nutrient-rich beverage for your houseplants.

If you don’t have eggs on hand, no worries. Water used to boil vegetables also has nutrients that make it a great homemade fertilizer for your houseplants.

REPOT YOUR PLANTS

More likely than not, your plant is suffocating in its pot.

It’s natural for some plants to outgrow their pot, resulting in their roots being constricted and becoming a tangled mess.

With the roots unable to breathe, it’s hard for them to absorb the nutrients and water they need to survive.

Jeremy Yamaguchi, CEO of Lawn Love stated: “Repotting the plant into a larger pot will give the roots more room, and it will also help you see if there is any root rot, which could also be contributing to the problem.

GET YOUR HANDS DIRTY

Karen Musgrave of Hicks Nurseries in Westbury, New York advised: “We suggest sticking your finger about an inch down into the soil.

If the soil feels moist, don’t water. If it feels dry, 水. If you’re not sure, check again in a few days.
