By adding an ingredient to the calla lily plant we will save a lot of money: use exactly this.


In our homes, we often tend to have plants on the balconies, but also inside our rooms as an ornament of the spaces to share with others or even just for our own taste.

Many of these, in addition to releasing a pleasant scent , are very useful as they tend to absorb the humidity present in our homes and therefore prevent mold and condensation from forming.

There are many plants that are purchased for home use, among the most common are hydrangeas, mother-in-law’s tongue, pothos and calla which is characterized by large triangular leaves and is very easy to grow.

This plant has a flower that can also bloom in a pot, giving life to one of the most beautiful and well-known and is an evergreen plant, its name means beautiful, deriving from the Greek term kalòs .

Its flower is called Lily of the Nile due to the fact that it grows around water streams that are present on the coasts of South African rivers and especially in the Egypt region .

Always considered an elegant and refined plant, its flowers can last for many weeks even once cut and placed inside a vase , changing the water daily.

The leaves are robust and resistant and tend to have a waxy appearance as does the flower which contains the spadix which resembles an ear of corn due to its shape.

Strong and vigorous call: the ingredient to use

Calla lilies can also give life to colorful flowers whose flowering occurs around May-June until September while the bulbs are put on sale between the beginning of September and the end of December.

To ensure that this plant grows vigorously, it is advisable to water it daily but not everyone knows that, to ensure that it is more resistant and shiny, there is a special ingredient.

This is rice water , which when put into the soil tends to make the plant strong and solid and by passing this ingredient over the leaves it will tend to keep their waxy appearance and avoid yellowing .

To use it, just soak the rice for a while until all the starch is released. Then drain the rice by placing the water in a container.

Depending on the use, we can insert the water directly into the ground or into a spray bottle to wash and make the leaves of our calla lily bright and shiny, making our neighbors envious.

This method can also be used for other types of plants of the same type, but it is always better to consult an expert or find out if rice water is useful for the plant on which we are thinking of using it.
