11 Embarrassing growing herbs in water Faux Pas You Better Not Make
Once you have the plants growing, you have to know how to plant them where they will take their best advantage. This can be a challenge since the plant is typically starting out in just an inch or two of water. To help ensure they have enough water, it is important to keep them hydrated. Watering the plants will usually suffice until they begin to grow, but once they start to take up more space, you will need to add water to keep them healthy.
Our first task is to ensure the plants are thriving and growing. This involves just a quick “soak” in the water, but it’s a good idea to be sure the soil is moist, so that the roots are well-situated.
If the plants aren’t growing well, you can add water to the soil. If the plants haven’t taken up any room, but still seem to need more room, you can start digging them a little bit to see if they’re ready to expand. This is especially true if you’re putting in multiple plants from different varieties of the same plant, because they will require different amounts of space.
Just a quick note of caution: If you are growing herbs or other edible greens in your home, make sure you dont use the fresh water that you use for cleaning, washing dishes, etc. as a water source. If you use water that you use for cleaning, laundry, etc, you are probably using water that is not clean, and that will kill the plants.
You could use a good old fashioned water distiller or pour boiling hot water on it and let it cool down, but that involves lots of equipment and can be very messy, and doesn’t necessarily yield the best result.
If you use something that is not clean, you are putting it in your home.
I have heard that using water that is not clean kills off many plant life, but I have never really seen it, so I am not sure how accurate this is.
As an aside, the fact that you are killing off plants in your home is not a good thing. It is better to grow plants that you like, plants that you can eat and drink, and plants that you will enjoy having around.
I guess I am in a bit of a debate here. On one hand, I think it is a good idea to grow plants in water, but I am against using water that is not clean. On the other hand, I am in favor of using the water you have. It is healthier to have clean water than clean water that is not clean.
So, this is a sort of a catch-22. We all live in water that is not clean and we all want clean water. But we want to drink clean water anyway. If we can have clean water that is clean by just using water that we have, then we are not using it as it should be used. This is one of those “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” situations.
