We'll make your foliage family healthy and happy again by teaching your the basics of soaking terra-cotta-potted plants in the bathtub. No special equipment required! Once you start soaking terra cotta, you'll never look back!
Just follow these two simple steps:
Step 1. Fill the tub with approx. 4 inches of water
Step 2. Put in your terra cotta planted pots in the water
SOAK THEM FOR ABOUT 1/2 and hour THEN SIT BACK AND LET YOUR PLANTS THANK YOU!
Got it? Let's recap:
Ya fill the tub - you put in your plants! Presto, waterlogged terracotta pots that help your plants stay moist in a dry apartment. Watch your plants come back to life! I say "Ressurect" sweet maidenhair fern! "Overcome" begonia tigress!! It's like sparkly voodoo houseplant magic!!!
