How to Recover a Dry Plant
In general, a plant resists drought better than excess water. One of the most frequent mistakes of those who start to cultivate their own garden or garden is to drown them for fear of not being watered enough.
Therefore, before watering, you have to sink a finger into the ground, to check that it is really dry. However, the excessive heat of summer, forget to water them for several days in a row, or go on vacation and discover that the person we left in charge was not the one to take care of the plants, they are common situations that can end up with a completely dry plant.
In some cases, there is nothing to do, but sometimes you can be on time to resuscitate them with this simple method.
1. First, you should crack the soil a little with a small shovel, a spoon or whatever you have at hand, creating wide gaps through which water can seep, but being careful not to damage the roots.
2. Once done, completely submerge the substrate in warm water. For this, lift the plant from the pot with the entire block of soil, and place it in a bucket. Leave it there until the earth is completely wet. The water should be warm because it will penetrate better.
3. Once you cannot absorb more water, place it on a plate to drain.
4. Sprinkle the leaves with water, using a vaporizer.
After this step, it only remains to wait. To find out if it worked, you should observe it again in a few days. If the soil stays moist, but the leaves do not hydrate, it means it was too late to rescue your plant.
But, if on the contrary, you notice that the stems return to their original thickness and some leaves are green again, you have achieved it!
In that case, prune the dry parts that are not going to recover … And pay more attention to your garden, so that this altercation does not happen again.
