“Take an aspirin and call me in the morning” is a phrase we’ve all heard. But have you ever given an aspirin to an ailing houseplant? Turns out it can do a world of good for your plants. When plants are stressed, they create something called salicylic acid to help boost their immune system. The active ingredient in aspirin, acetylsalicylic acid, happens to be derived from salicylic acid. Diluting an aspirin in water for plants can help them thrive and stay alive!
