If you think of TikTok as a place where tweens and members of Gen Z play unfathomable dance moves and viral sea shanties for their peers, you might be surprised to discover that it’s also an internet platform where gardening tips are shared.

According to a number of the most popular green-thumbed TikTokers, with a little ingenuity and, say, a couple of old plastic bottles, there’s pretty much nothing you can’t do to get your indoor and outdoor plants looking great.

From ‘wine bottle watering globes’ to getting rid of fleas using orange peels, take a look at these hacks.

1. Water your plants with a wine bottle

Watering globes that go into soil can cost many dollars, but a wine bottle you have hanging around in your recycling bin? That costs nothing. Check out @brightly. Eco‘s TikTok to understand how to make your own free watering world.

2. Feed your plants for just the right amount of time

Neither overwatering and under-watering your crops is optimal, so @chelseaaabri says to put your pots in a plate full of water. That way they’ll soak up just the perfect amount.

3. Figure out how thirsty your crops are with a pencil

Here’s @geainthejungle‘s trick for finding out if your plants need watering: Mark the thickness of dryness a particular plant enjoys on a pencil; stick the pencil from the soil to that specific depth, and whether the nib comes out a little damp ? You know you don’t need to water it quite yet.

4. Fertilize your plants with coffee

How to fertilize your potted plants? Well you could buy some fancy plant food, or you could just dilute your leftover coffee with water and pour that in the soil, says @_forthehome.

5. Eliminate fleas with orange peels

You love your crops, but so do the bugs in your home. What to do? Simply put orange peels around your greens, says @ghibligreenhouse.

6. Create a mini greenhouse from old plastic bottles

On Instagram, @plasticfreeally has shared a green means of creating a very small greenhouse from discarded plastic bottles. First up, cut those bottles in half, then watch your green items sprout.

7. Make a home for seeds in used tea bags

Here’s a new one from @creative_explained: Take a used tea bag, pop a hole in it with a pair of scissors, place your preferred seed inside, set the entire thing in a Ziploc bag, then watch that small seed sprout.

8. Grow your own fruit from what you get at the grocery store
