Revive a wilted houseplant
We have all done it, let a poor houseplant become so dry that it wilts. Don’t worry, it's normally easy to revive, as long as you follow a few simple rules. It just takes time.
1. It happens to us all.
When a houseplant wilts all is not lost.
2. The process
Fill a deep bowl with room temperature water. This ensures that when you put the plant into the water it is not too much of a shock.
3. Don't be alarmed
When you first put the plant into the bowl of water it will float.
4. 15 minutes later
The plants leaves are starting to revive and it is tempting to remove it from the water at this point. But don't it needs much longer to be fully revived.
5. After 6 hours
A fully revived plant ready to live another day.
6. Looking good
Watch your watering regime, as houseplants do not respond well if allowed to wilt regularly.
