I am hoping someone can explain why what I saw worked.
While working at a florest who also carried plants
a gardenia plant came in one day off the truck from Florida.
It looked "dead" to me. All the blooms were essentially
dead, or so I thought by looking at it. All the leaves were
totally wilted. It wasn't a lack of water that was going
to revive this plant, as I have had that experience and
it failed to come back with just water. The woman who
cared for the plants saw it and said it's not dead, watch she said.
She proceeded to pour about a cup, I guess, of coffee
onto the soil of the plant. Within 30 min. that plant looked
as alive and vibrant as any plant could. I was shocked,
but delighted. I always wonder if when I see a plant wilt
indoor that is, if I should go get some cold coffee and do
this. Anyone care to share their experience or opinion?
