It is not uncommon for us to steam our veggies. One night as I was dumping the leftover water out from the veggies we had steamed for dinner, Jacob said, "You should water the house plants with that, it is probably loaded with vitamins." I had actually never thought of that, but it sounded like a good idea to me. So from that point I began dumping our veggie water into my Dieffenbachia.

Since I began dumping this Vitamin Water into my plant about 4 months ago the main cane has probably grown at least a foot and a half. In addition, the plant has added 4 new leaves. It has been amazing to watch it grow so fast and it seems so much healthier than it was before. Maybe this is just a coincidence, but it doesn't seem likely. Give this water conservation tip a try and see if it doesn't give your house plants a boost.
