Every living thing in this world would require water as the most important resources of life, include animals and plants. The differences between humans, animals and plants are only on their mind and movement. If a man can walk, try, get, and even develop water resources to fulfill the life, then the animals would follow their instinct to get the water adjusted to the environment where they live. They are still able to move with their bodies. But how about the plants? Their water storage is very limited, so they need human to help them saving water and reserving outside the plant body. There are five of the easiest way you can do at home to collect garden water for your plants.
The first is the water from boiled foods such as instant noodles, pasta, and vegetables. Simply by allowing the water to cool down, then you can sprinkle it into your plant. Nutrients in the cooking water content are very rich and good for crops, especially if the water is used for vegetable stew.
The second is placing a bucket in the bathroom. With this way, the water, which is wasted when you use shower, can be accommodated in the bucket even though not all the water can be accommodated. The water in the bucket can be used for watering your plants.
