For a long time I thought our houseplants survived by magic until I realised my husband was watering them. I’m a cactus and orchid kind of person – they don’t like being watered too often which is perfect for me as plant watering was always at the bottom of my list.
After most meals in our house there are half drunk glasses of water on the table and instead of just pouring the water down the sink like we used to, we water the plants instead! If the indoor plants aren’t looking too thirsty I pour the water on the outside ones. The only problem now is trying to make sure we don’t over water them!So next time you find a table scattered with half drunk glasses of water at the end of a meal, get watering those houseplants!
