Plants and flowers at home: how to take care of them

Plants and flowers at home contribute to improving the aesthetic appearance of our home. Furthermore, they are also able to provide numerous health and well-being benefits. Plants not only increase oxygen in the air , but they can also reduce stress levels, improve mood and even reduce the symptoms of some diseases.

Indoor flowering plants come in a wide range of varieties and can be chosen based on your personal needs and preferences . For example, some plants such as snake plant, ivy, and Boston fern, are known for their ability to eliminate toxins in the air and improve indoor air quality. Other plants, such as lavender and mint, have aromatherapeutic properties that can help reduce stress and improve mood.

However, plants still deserve some attention so that they can flourish luxuriantly. Among these, fertilization stands out which, in addition to chemical products, can also be done with natural ingredients, the result of waste materials from our kitchen.

The infallible natural remedy

All it takes is a spoonful of a natural ingredient to see your plants grow lush and full of flowers. This ingredient, in fact, will stimulate growth by giving the soil the natural sugars it needs.

It is a domestic fertilizer that is able to give plants the mineral salts necessary for their growth, as well as micronutrients. A spoonful should be placed on the soil of the plant once every thirty days.

In reality, if the plant is already full of flowers, for example flowering daffodils, the spoonful of household fertilizer will need to be placed on the base of each flower.


The organic fertilizer that we offer for your flowers is made using waste from the coffee machine, the classic moka coffee maker that we all used to prepare at home.

In practice, after enjoying your coffee, you let the coffee maker cool down and empty it. Instead of throwing away the remains of the coffee, collect them in a plastic bag. When you have reached the quantity needed for your plants, mix everything well and put a level teaspoon in each one.

In addition to nourishing the plant, coffee grounds can also be used to prevent insect infestation. The smell of coffee can repel some insects such as ants and midges. Simply sprinkle coffee grounds around the plants to protect them from infestations.
