The next time the weather calls for a gentle rainstorm, consider bringing your indoor plants outdoors. It’s water-efficient, since you’re taking advantage of a free water source, but there is much more than plant hydration going on here. Rainwater also helps give your plants a “bath” of sorts; dust and debris on the plants’ leaves will be gently rinsed off. And the rainwater helps do one more thing: It dissolves built-up salts and minerals from tap water on the soil of your plant.
