Plants need a good dusting
When you’re cleaning, don’t forget about your plants.
Dust on the leaves can reduce the plant’s ability to photosynthesize at an optimum rate.
How do you dust a plant?
You can mist smaller plants with a spray bottle. Take larger plants outdoors on a nice day and gently spray them. Allow the leaves to dry off in the sun before bringing them back inside.
Don’t forget plastic plants need love, too
I have a black thumb when it comes to plants and think I could kill a plastic one. The picture above is the only live plant I have, only because it is extremely drought tolerate and warns me that it needs some water by drooping. The rest of my plants end up looking similar to this. —>
I keep the little information tag so I can identify what it once was. Oh yea…that was an attempt at growing tomatoes. I’m so proud I was able to keep the stake green all winter long. Don’t worry. You won’t find any gardening advice on this site. 🙂
Dusting fake plants
Needless to say, my house is full of fake plants. I have plant shelves in almost every room in the house and greenery on each one.
Collect the fake greenery and place them in the bathtub/shower. Spray them off with the shower head and let them drip dry in the tub.
Don’t forget about the fake trees
The same goes for my fake trees which I lean into the tub and spray them off to keep the base dry.
They are dark green again!
