Why You Should Place Matches In Your Flower Pots

Besides leaving the environment more comfortable, indoor plants also improve air quality and increase the amount of oxygen in the room. Sadly, plants don’t always do as well as we expect, even if you’re trying to take care of them really hard. They always look sad and wilted, even if you water them daily.

Sound familiar?

Parasites and pests are normally to blame, and unfortunately they’re not always easy to spot with the naked eye. Some people resort to chemicals, but then, you could end up damaging the plants even more.

Fortunately, there is a very simple trick that can improve the appearance of your plants quickly. Forget about the aggressive chemical products.

All you need is a simple, easy to find box of matches.

Take some of them and stick them in the dirt surrounding the plant. Make sure you bury the head of the match in the soil. Your plant will recover quickly.

The reason is in the head of the matches, more specifically of what they are made of. The phosphorus and the sulfur will get rid of the bugs in a safe and reliable way, and your plant will be able to breathe again.

To get rid of them, you won’t need to buy poisons and chemicals. Using aggressive products to solve this type of problem is not always necessary. The solution is pretty simple at times. And the best thing to do is to reuse the matches later!
