Some of the best sources of nutrients for your plants, both indoor and out, are the leftovers from your own meals.
Just a few of the possibilities that I've found that work well with my plants.
- The leaves from leftover tea bags or loose tea. These contain nitrogen, which is just what your plant needs. Spread them over the soil and work them in a bit for the best effect.
- Club Soda - didn't finish that opened bottle and now it's flat? Don't pour what's left down the drain. Instead, pour it over your plants. The minerals in the soda will be good for them.
- Cooking water from pasta or potatoes. It has nutrients your plants can use, and the starches will give them an extra boost.
- Doing dishes by hand is being able to use the rinse water in your garden or houseplants (except African Violets). Soap in the water kills a number of pests, and you'll be doing your bit to conserve water as well. J
