Are you positive it's a he? It could be a she and be drinking for two. I would see a botanist about it just to be sure. Over-watering can also kill them so make sure the soil is getting dry before adding more water.

What are the easy and best ways to take care of flower garden?

1. Keep the water up to them so they do not dry out completely but do not over water. Many species of flowers will die quickly if allowed to dry out, especially in hot summers. Get yourself a good book covering the species of plants you have to improve you knowledge in caring for the plants.

2. Fertilise with a suitable slow release fertiliser in spring and summer.

3. Mulch the beds with a suitable product to retard weeds and retain soil moisture.

4. If the flowers are planted in a heavy soil dig a little river sand into the soil where possible in existing beds.

5. Don't use garden chemicals to ward off pests. If you have pest susceptible flower species that will require chemical spraying and the like, remove them and replace them with hardier more resilient species.

What are non-toxic plants for cats?

The answer depends upon where you live, but generally that list is a VERY long list - it's easier to try the opposite direction and ask which plants are TOXIC to cats; that list is much smaller.

First, all plants are toxic to cats, humans, horses, etc... if given in too high a dose. The rest of this answer assumes ordinary exposure.

Most food plants are mostly non-toxic to cats, but onions and garlic and similar plants can be highly toxic to them. Most beans are non-toxic to cats, but chocolate beans and coffee beans can be toxic to them.

Most grasses and grains are non-toxic to cats.

But... some cats may show allergic reactions to unexpected plants, so never assume that anything is absolutely non-toxic to all cats - just as you can't assume that anything is absolutely non-toxic to all humans. Some cats may also have a metabolic quirk that renders them unusually sensitive to certain plants not ordinarily considered to be toxic to cats.

In short... since I assume that you're asking about a particular cat, probably one kept indoors, and you want to know what houseplants are safe to keep in the house... try to put together a list of plants YOU would like to have, then search for information on whether each plant on your list is considered to be TOXIC to cats, and cross it off the list if it is. When you've eliminated all the plants from your list that're known to be toxic, try the rest with your cat. If your cat doesn't deveop a health problem, you're probably OK.

My plants leaves are curling up

Need a lot more information. What plants? Indoor or outdoor? What soil are they in? Are you watering enough or too much and do you give it fertilizer as directed?

Are there any disadvantages to using artificial plants in my aquarium as opposed to live ones?

There are several disadvantages; in fact the only advantage I can think of is that they are easy to maintain. Real plants help fish survive in many ways, leading to the reasons why artificial plants are at a disadvantage.

Real plants can act as a source of food for your fish

Fake plants cannot keep your tanks carbon dioxide/nitrate levels low

Real plants fend off algae growth

What is the best grow lights to grow *********

That depends on what you're trying to grow and what phase the plant is in. Certain plants are adapted to grow in the shade or in warm, sunny environments. Depending on the plant, one type of light may work better than another. For example, if your plant needs a shadier environment, then a regular incandescent bulb may work best.

The other factor that goes into choosing the right grow light is what phase your plant is at. For example, a high-pressure sodium bulb may be best when your plant is in the flowering or fruiting stage.

Personally, I love using LED grow lights. Modern LED bulbs are more energy-efficient (they produce more light with less power), so they cost less in the long run. They also produce less heat, which means you don't have to worry about a ventilation system. Plus, they emit light wavelengths that correspond to the peak absorption peaks for most plants.

When choosing your bulb, you should look at the requirements of the plant and how those requirements change as the plant continues to grow. Keep in mind that the larger your plant gets, the more light it will need, so plan ahead.

I have a black GT500 and what can I use to keep it clean?

Turtle Wax in the compound case. Do not use lotions or other filmy substances. Completely rinse off your car with straight water, no abrasive additives or pressure washes! Wash with a soft, lint-free towel and dry with a REAL Chamois. Chamois should cost right around $30.00 for a nice one. Make sure your Chamois is completely wet before trying to dry anything off - and wring it dry, but keep it moist. Never use any "No-Touch" or "No-Wash" substances or abrasive cleaners or towels. Never use a power-tool or power buffer. Always do everything by hand, and it will last for years. Keep your vehicle away from sappy trees, and garage always or as much as possible. The SUN is your enemy number one.

Ficus trees loosing leaves turnig yellow and falling off

How long have you had the tree?
Indoors or out?
If indoors, do you have any new plants in the house?
Have you moved the plant recently?

Your problem could be any one of:
  1. An infestation of tiny insects. Spray a solution of soap and water all over the plant, top and underside of leaves, until it is dripping. This will kill the insects.
  2. Overwatering. Hard to fix. Try transferring to a bigger pot and mixing in new dry soil. Or poke holes in the soil around the roots with the handle of a wooden spoon to let the air in.
  3. Underwatering. Put the plant in the bath, turn on the shower, set to tepid (i.e. not freezing cold and definitely not hot) and give it a good soaking. But take the pot out of the tray or dish and let it drain. It should not be in standing water. Don't water "little and often" - this is bad... give it a good soaking and then let it dry out.
  4. Chemical build up from tap water. If you see a salty-looking depsoit aorund the pot, or brown depsoits. do the same procedure as above.
Hope this helps.
