1001 Best Ways To Grow Plants

Keep them in the bathroom.

18 best ways to raise plants Keep them in the bathroom.I wasn’t always good at having indoor plants. My secret now to growing and nurturing them is to keep plants that require lots of water in the bathroom, so that every time I go to the restroom, I give them a bit of water if they don’t have water in the drip tray. So, location is the most important part of plant care for me.

Just Leave Them Alone!

18 best ways to raise plants Just Leave Them Alone!I recently started to grow my own small garden this year, and had absolutely no gardening experience. I got online and did ton’s of research because I wanted to have perfect plants that produced lots of vegetables (Tomato’s and Squash). I started off just like I was advised on several gardening forums, I went out and spent tons of money on pruning tools and special plant food. I kept this up for about a month and finally gave up after my plants took a turn for the worse. After about a week of me paying no attention to the plants, I noticed that they were looking perkier than ever, and I was actually getting blooms on them. They ended up producing delicious vegetables so the moral of the story is, plants just like sun and water, and they will take care of the rest. There’s no need to go crazy buying all kinds of stuff that plants can naturally do on there own.

Water Plants With Soda Water.

18 best ways to raise plants Water Plants With Soda Water.I have the ultimate secret that was passed down from my grandmother who’s thumbs were both green. I water my tomato plants with soda water. I have compared growing tomatoes with both regular water and with the soda water and the tomatoes grow much larger and taste much better when they are grown using the soda. You must grow the tomatoes in a pot when watering this way but it is well worth using the extra room on your porch. I have not tried growing any other vegetable or fruits using this technique because of how expensive it is but I bet it would be worth the extra money.

Simply Ignore Them.

18 best ways to raise plants Simply Ignore Them.I grow orchids of all sort: paphiopedilums, cattleyas, cymbidiums and so on. The trick that seems to work best for me is simply to ignore them: I don’t dote or treat them tenderly.
