SHAREABLE Tip #14 - Spray Your Plants with THIS Solution Before Bringing Them Indoors

Soon it will be that time of year again when we have to bring in all our houseplants outdoors – indoors for the winter, but before doing so, you might want to whip up this simple solution of water and soap to take care of any lingering pests on them.




Spray Your Plants with THIS Solution Before Bringing Them Indoors

Plants may be on vacation being outdoors all summer but that also means attracting unwanted leaf dwellers such as aphids, spider mites, scale and mealybugs or other hitchhikers such as lacewings, gnats and spiders.

To get rid of these pests before bringing your plant indoors:

For smaller plants – dunk them into a 5-gallon (19-litres) of water for 15 mins, adding a few drops of liquid dish or hand soap to deter any insects.

For larger plants – mix solution of 40 parts water to one part liquid soap – and spray the plants all over to get rid of those pesky pests!
