The only thing that I could suggest - that is not harmful to vegitation - is,,
Sprinkle some baking soda into the water a few times a day.. It might nor clear it right away but should help receed it over a few days or so..

How to redye bleach stains on navy blue jeans How to re-dye bleach stains on Navy blue jeans?


You'll Need:
-1 box of rit dye navy blue (or denim blue)
-1/2 box of rit dye black
-3 gallon or so bucket
-Hot water
-GLOVES
-Optional blue making/painters tape

You can get Rit dye from walgreens for like $3 but may be cheaper elsewhere. If you check the first picture it shows the difference in shades of color for denim vs. navy blue. Choose which one you feel is better. (Navy blue is a bit darker but more "blue") You can add the full box of black dye but obviously it'll be much darker and closer to black. I find half is a good amount. The size of bucket doesn't matter as long as it hold enough water to fill over the jeans. If you have levi's or other jeans with one of those papery tags on the back you can cover it up with masking tape. I have tried duct and packaging tape and so far blue painter's tape works the best.

YOU NEED GLOVES unless you want smurf colored hands...

Note: there is a way to dye your jeans using a big pot over the stove but that makes a mess in the pot and is INCREDIBLY hard to clean

Can I use diluted Roundup in evergreen carpet?


Hiya while I am not sure of what you mean exactly as an evergreen carpet I do know that if you want a plant or tree to survive don't use round up near it. Roundup is an extremely strong effective herbicide which will kill any living plant (more precisely the leaves) it touches. It also takes very little to kill a plant or tree.

Having said all that. I have had an issue with Lilly of the valley taking over as our property was vacant for 20 years the plants went unchecked all that time. I have tried just about everything else nothing even slowed them down. Of course they are a shade plant and growing under all of my trees that lined the property and are well over 100 years old.

  • I got a large pop bottle and punctured 2 holes in the lid and added the Roundup mix into the bottle.
  • I collected several sheets of plastic and newspaper. It is my understanding as long as the chemical doesn't touch the other plants or roots they should be ok.
  • What you want to do is to apply the round up to the leaves ( no need to soak everything down) Just a few good drops to the leaves of the target plants should do the trick.
  • Use the plastic or paper to protect the other plants you want to keep. Wait a week to ten days and you should see them begin to die. Protect all plants from accidental contact. since accidents occur what I did was immediately break or cut the infected leaf then flush the plant really well with water. This worked like a charm for me.
I can honestly say I am finally winning the battle. This year I only had about 2% of the offending plants appear. I am hoping none show up next year but if one or two do survive they wont the next year.

I hope this helps if you have any further questions please feel free to ask. Happy gardening

How to care for ho useplant begonia rex?


Growing Requirements for Rex Begonia Plants Rex Begonias grow best in bright, indirect sunlight coming from an east or west window.
Fluorescent grow lights are also an excellent alternative to natural light for these plants,
and in many cases will intensify the foliage colors.
When potting, set the plant with the crown slightly above the soil line.
They should be planted in a porous, slightly acidic planting mix that contains some peat moss
and leaf mold. African Violet potting mixes work well for Rex Begonias.

Allow the top 1inch of soil to dry before watering, then water thoroughly.
Over watering can lead to root or crown rot! Wet foliage can cause problems with mildew.
Always use room temperature water when watering house plants.
House plants should never be allowed to stand in water for more than a few hours.
Painted-Leaf Begonia plants thrive with daytime temperatures of 70-75
and 60-65 at night. NEVER lower than 60!
They require a humidity level of at least 50 percent and appreciate periodic, light misting.
Provide additional humidity by setting the plants on shallow trays filled with moistened pebbles,
or a humidifier, especially during the winter months.

Feed actively growing plants in early spring and again in early summer with a slow-release plant food,
or every 2 weeks using a quarter strength dilution of a soluble, complete fertilizer (23-19-14).
Decrease feeding in early fall and stop altogether in the winter. Do not over-fertilize!

Your Begonia Rex may go dormant in the winter and possibly drop its leaves.
If this happens, continue to water sparingly until spring when new leaves will re-appear.
If your Rex is growing where it only gets light from one side ( a window sill),
turn the pot a quarter turn each week to maintain even growth.
Foliage color may fade under low light conditions. Consider using a grow light.

Remove any dead leaves and other debris around plant regularly.
Rex Begonias enjoy spending the summer in a shaded part of the garden.
Always be sure to check for insects and pests before bringing your plants back indoors!
Rex Begonias are susceptible to attacks from mealy bugs.

The leaves on my apple and pear trees are going curly and tuning black the trees are only young and were planted last autumn


Fruit trees need adequate water - especially if young and in spring and summer. They may also be susceptible to bugs or disease. You can take a leaf to your local nursery for specific advice.

Rubber tree plant


This can happen for a few reasons, all involving water in one form or another. A rubber tree that is underwatered or overwatered will curl its leaves. As will a rubber tree that is in too low of a humidity or in poor soil.
When watering water when the soil is dry to the touch about 1 inch down and then water with enough water to that water runs out the holes each time. This helps remove any build up of soluable salts. IF the tree has recently been moved and lost leaves, the tree should put out new leaves but they will not be in the quantity that they were when the plant was brought in. Fertilizer should not be used at this time of adjustment. Only after the plant gets settled into the new location and then about once a month or so.

Can i cut my yucca trees down and plant them elswhere in the back yard


Yes you can, just don't pull them out of the ground, dig around them and deep enough to keep most of the roots intact. Dig the holes where you want to replant them first before digging the yuccas out!!! Once you have your plant dug out replant it in the new hole as soon as possible, use some good potting soil to fill around it and water it.. Yuccas are very tough plants so you should be OK.

Care of the plant: Water; location


Kalanchoes don't like to be wet all of the time; let it get a little on the dry side before watering. They love sun, as long as the heat isn't too excessive. They can be summered outdoors, and usually bloom in winter/early spring. Bring them inside before frost.

Does a waterfall in my coy pond work the same as a water pump?


Yes and no. Waterfalls in outdoor ponds do providecirculation by moving the water around and keeping it from becomingstagnant. This does however, create acurrent which is not always ideal when trying to grow plants or if you arehousing small fish in your aquarium. Astrong current can make it difficult for plants to take root and can be tootiring for small fish to succeed in.
