What are the benefits of rainwater for houseplants?

Have you ever wondered why our houseplants look oh so green and vibrant after a shower outside in the rain? Well, read on! While we can't always give them a drink with water fresh from the sky, here's why you should make the most of a rainy day (or week, or month). 

 

RAIN HELPS TO DETOXIFY HOUSEPLANT SOIL

Salts that are held in tap water can build up in your soil and prevent growth. Popping your plants outside for a periodic drink help to flush any toxic build up in the soil.

RAIN WATER HAS MORE OXYGEN

Want to add some extra go-go to your Grow Concentrate? Try mixing it with rainwater! Not only does it keep the beneficial bacteria (and therefore your plants) happy, but the higher levels of oxygen can prevent root rot and stinky soil. That's a win-win. 

 

RAIN WATER CAN FEED YOUR HOUSEPLANTS...KINDA

Did you know that some nutrients can stay locked in the soil? Rainwater can help to convert hidden micronutrients like zinc, manganese, copper and iron into a form of minerals that your plants can use. It also activates Support Pellets faster!

 

RAIN WATER MAKES PLANTS GREENER

Nitrogen is the key to keeping plants looking lush and healthy. Most fertilisers (especially those that are not certified organic) use chemically derived nitrogen and dangerous ammonia to artificially turn leaves green. Fresh rainwater however is naturally high in nitrogen and does the job beautifully. Try adding a squirt of Grow Concentrate to really get that foliage flourishing!

 

TIPS FOR GIVING YOUR PLANTS A DRINK

  • Avoid leaving them out for extended periods of time (it can stress sensitive leaves). 
  • An even spread of light raindrops are best. If it's stormy, damage could occur. 
  • Sensitive new foliage can get damaged in heavy showers, so watch out!
  • Let your plants dry off in an area with decent airflow to avoid fungal infections.
