I’m reminded of when i was a kid i used an old perfume sample bottle my mother had and used it to grow mosquito larvae

Table salt works to get rid of the coating inside the light bulb. Just a teaspoon and give it a swirl.

Dude, a Philips screwdriver has a plus sign shaped tip, the flat head screwdriver is called a Flathead Screwdriver or a Slot Screwdriver.

Hi that’s great , I too have grown plants in water and also done what u do too . But word of advice about plant u are trying to help save . You have to remove dead leaves n branches on it as they take any of food or nutrients u may be giving it even if dead and healthier part of plant doesn’t get much ! Just trying to help and i too know about plants n gardening n trees . I had 3 trees and one was 4 feet n other almost 6 feet an another only 2 feet and u can stunt a trees growth really cool ! also 70 something plants in my home a i love them and great for putting more oxygen in your home .Good luck : )
