Woman shares hilarious & genius 'tampon hack' that saves overwatered house plants

Must See 09/07/2020

One of the most common causes of death for house plants is overwatering.

While recently we shared one woman's handy hack for figuring out if your plant needs watering or not, an Australian woman has shared her hack on how to bring plants back from the dead when they have been overwatered.

But one woman has shared an unexpected hack for bringing plants back from the dead, and it doesn't require any fancy fertiliser. 

Instead, you just need a box of tampons.

Australian woman Empress Eyrie says she decided to put the feminine hygiene product in the dirt of her hoya plants after accidentally drowning them in water.

"Need a laugh AND a hack?" she wrote on her Facebook post.

"I overwatered a few of my hoyas of late and I was worried about these new ones having the same issue."

"I saw this tip in the comments of another group and decided to try it myself."

"I don't use tampons but had them in the back of the cupboard and half the packets were damaged and were rubbish anyway so thought I would give it a go and it bloody worked  so much moisture drawn out of the soil in only a few hours  so if you accidentally over water your water sensitve plants plug a tampon in it  They have doubled in size "
