Make your flowers last longer
If you are one of those who enjoys decorating your home with fresh flowers , you will get them to last much longer if you put an aspirin in the vase . Acetylsalicylic acid, by reducing the production of ethylene, makes the flowers stay like the first day longer. In addition, it delays the appearance of bacteria.
Protect your plants from fungi
Fungi are very harmful microorganisms that can kill plants in a matter of days. One way to keep them protected from Fusarium and Verticilium, two of the most common fungi, is to dilute an aspirin in a liter of water in a spray bottle , and apply it to the plants or seeds before sowing them.
Improves your immune system
Whether they are indoors or outdoors, plants have to face numerous problems every day if they want to get ahead: changes in temperature, drought or excess humidity, pests… All this can weaken their immune system, which will end for making them very vulnerable. To help them, it is highly recommended to dilute 1 tablet in a liter of water and spray them every three weeks throughout the growing season .
