Instructions

How to use neem oil:

Neem oil is a natural insecticide and can be used to polish and shine the leaves of your plants. To use neem, add 2 tbsp (approximately ½ the amber tincture bottle) to 3.5 L of water. Mix well. Test a small area of the plant and wait 24 hours before applying generously. Apply to all surfaces of the plant, including the underside of leaves. The neem mixture can also be effective when misted on the plant every 7-14 days. Keep plants out of direct sunlight after applying to prevent the leaves from burning.

How to use dish soap:

This gentle dish soap can be blended with water to create insecticidal soap, a mixture that can eliminate pest infestations. To make insecticidal soap, add 4 tbsp (approximately ½ the dropper bottle) to 3.5 L of water. Mix well and mist plants immediately and thoroughly, including the undersides of leaves. Ensure that the soap comes in direct contact with the pests. Wipe down affected plant gently and place in a room with good airflow. Repeat every 4-7 days until pests have disappeared.

How to use diatomaceous earth:

Diatomaceous earth is your secret weapon for combatting pests! To use, sprinkle liberally around the soil of your affected plants. The powder is effective against slugs, beetles, worms, fleas, mites and many other insects.

How to use cinnamon:

Cinnamon is a natural anti-fungal and can effectively combat any mold developing on the soil of your plants. Fungus will appear as discolored spots on the soil. Lightly dust the topsoil of your houseplants to combat mold and mildew.

How to use Epsom salts:

Use Epsom salts when your houseplants show signs of magnesium deficiency. First, complete a soil test or check that your plant’s leaves are turning yellow between green veins. If the plant is magnesium deficient, mix a tbsp of Epsom salts in 3.5 L of water and blend well. Water the plant thoroughly until the solution comes through the drainage hole. Repeat monthly as needed.

How to use coffee grounds:

A compost tea is an excellent way to fertilize and add essential nutrients to your houseplants. To make the tea, add 1 cup of coffee grounds to 3.5 L of water. Let soak for 1-2 weeks, stirring every few days. When the mixture is ready, strain through a cheesecloth and use it to water your plants. Repeat every 2-3 months.

Great gifts

I bought this set for two dear friends of mine who love love live plants. They were over the moon to receive this set and said it was perfect. The packaging is beautiful and simple.
