Diapers for Moisture
Cheap disposable diapers can do wonders for your plants, especially during warm summer months. They can stop potting soil from drying out quickly because they contain hydrogel, which makes them highly absorbent and helps them hold a lot of liquid.
Before potting your plants, pour water into a diaper and allow it to soak, allowing it to transform into a gel-like substance. Mix the gel with potting soil and you’ll get absorbent and fluffy soil, which can increase your plant’s ability to retain moisture.
