Plants, forget water: water them with vinegar: it’s miraculous what happens!

Well, yes! White vinegar, in addition to removing the oxide on garden tools (just soak them for a couple of hours in vinegar), keeps flowers fresh much longer, even when they are cut. Simply pour one teaspoon of sugar and two tablespoons of vinegar into a container of water and you’re done.
To water the plant, on the other hand, we only need to add a teaspoon of vinegar to a liter of water. In this way we will be able to prevent the appearance of mold.
On the other hand, if we want to get rid of dry leaves, we will simply spray it on the leaves.
