Better Water

Martha Stewart Living, March 2004

Houseplants need a healthy diet, and you can help by giving them clean water. Fill jugs with tap water, and leave the caps off for at least forty-eight hours. Some chlorine will evaporate, leaving purer water. As a result, plants will absorb nutrients more easily.
