Is it possible to water indoor plants with ice cubes

Among the methods of watering indoor plants, the life hack with ice cubes has gained particular popularity. Experts say that it is suitable for almost all plants from fastidious orchids to hardy ficuses.

This watering method can even reduce the risk of root rot. Express shared how to water indoor flowers with ice cubes.

Watering rules

Excessive watering is one of the main causes of decay in indoor plants. Wanting the plant to receive enough moisture, we can only harm the root system with our good intentions. The fact is that waterlogging not only causes rotting but also damages fine roots.

Fortunately, experts say that such problems can be easily avoided by providing the plant with the necessary moisture through ice cubes.

According to Ice Co, placing a few ice cubes on the soil can provide indoor plants with proper moisture through slow and steady melting.

This revolutionary method gives the soil a wide opportunity to absorb the amount of moisture that the plant needs for good growth.

Ice cubes for orchids

Orchids are tropical plants, so there may be well-founded concerns about the advisability of using ice cubes to water these finicky flowers.

Experts refute this argument, noting that plants need a change in temperature for proper flowering, which ice can help facilitate.
