About: i love to play piano,and I love art

to give your plants a boost of antioxidents take 2 cups of water in a microwavable cup and add one green tea bag. so your pretty much making a cup of tea..... put in for 2 and 1/2 min. when done chill in fridge for 30 min. now pour around the stem of your plant,leting it soak into the soil.

the antioxidents in the tea make your plants leaves turn greener and bigger. dont belive me? look it up,its true,green tea is good for your plants.

for cooling and keeping your plants leaves healthy,put water in a spray bottle and spray the leaves clean daily.the dirt and bug dropings can make your leaves dull and unhealthy.i know its kinda strange,you know washing your plants leaves but i noticed when spraying the leaves directly you can see the dirt and filth come of the leaves.i use the mist on the spray bottle like one inch from the leaf and start from the top and work my way down,doing this daily will insure bugs,dirt,and bug droping stay off.ive seen a 85% increase in health in my plants,it works!

    This sounds interesting, it's all natural, so should be good for it.

    The tea part of this is good- plants seem to respond well to green tea as well as compost tea. The microwaving part, however, is bad! Microwaved water is horrible for plants. The microwave destroys many of the nutrients and antioxidants in the tea and damages the molecular structure of the water molecules. Give your plants tea, just don't heat it with a microwave.

    I heat my tea in microwave power 3, instead of on high.
