Tamad Magdilig Ng Halaman? You Can't Kill Houseplants With This Method!Become the plantita or plantito of your dreams!by SmartParenting Staff .
These days, everyone seems to be a budding plantita and for good reasons. Houseplants are mood boosters (way more affordable than getting therapy). We know they can help clean the air at home (yes, there is such a thing as indoor pollution — read more here). And they can brighten up any space — big or small — and give it a totally new look.
Many hesitate, however, because of the care and maintenance required. No one wants to cause houseplant deaths! But the funny thing is people end up killing their plants because of too much or too little watering.
The solution is hydroponic gardening. You don't need soil for the plants to live — it just needs water. And according to Meynard AV Reyes, an avowed fan of water-based plants, you only need to refill the water when it runs low.
Meynard points out this gardening method is perfect for people who are "tamad sa pagdidilig." The fact you can make a soil-free garden means zero maintenance already in our books.
He puts it this way, "Pag hindi ka green thumb at namatay sa iyo yan, ewan ko na lang."
Another benefit of hydroponic gardening: iwas dengue! "Hindi babahayan ng lamok."
Meynard, whose water garden is a sight to behold, shares the benefits he has gotten in the video below.

With water-based plants, you can display them, create arrangements to prettify a table, they can take up space with purpose (and you don't feel guilty hoarding jars ever again).ADVERTISEMENT - CONTINUE READING BELOW
What plants are ideal for hydroponic gardening? Meynard has fortune plants. Other popular choices are spider plants, peace lily, philodendron, begonia, geranium, and baby's tears, But gardeners say you can also start with herbs like oregano, basil, and rosemary.
