Frugal people buy their houseplants small and then let them
grow. It takes time and patience, but it is thrift friendly. As your
plants grow, move them to larger containers. Rotate them so all sides are
exposed to the sun. If you go on vacation, and you don't have anyone to
water your plants, put a tiny hole in a water bottle and set it inside the plant
some more frugal tips to save money on
- Turn them periodically so the
sun will hit all sides of them.
- Keep dust off them by spraying
them with water in the sink or bathtub.
- Don't overwater them. If
you feel moisture when you put you finger in the soil, they are fine.
- Cut off dead or diseased
- Fertilizer you house plants
for hearty growth.
- Use egg shells and the old water from fish bowls
for inexpensive plant fertilizer.
