You probably already know the usefulness of coffee grounds as fertilizer for plants, but did you know that coffee filters are also useful for potted plants?

Coffee filters placed at the bottom of the pot prevent the soil from escaping through the drainage holes when watering the plants, without preventing water from circulating!

This is a simple tip that avoids mess and for that, I recommend it 100%.

Coffee filters will be able to do you other services, for example:

Dry herbs. When you harvest your herbs, put them in coffee filters, roll the filter around the herbs and let dry in the sun. The filter will absorb moisture from the herbs and accelerate the process.

Seedlings. Coffee filters are also ideal for planting in the spring: you can plant your small plants with the coffee filter that will disintegrate in the soil.

To dry tomato seeds. Place tomato seeds on a coffee filter, with a space between each of them, and place the filter in a dry place. Each day, turn the seeds on another side to allow them to dry and change the filter if the seeds have stuck and left traces of moisture. Your tomato seeds that usually take at least 10 days to dry will be dry in 5 days because the filter absorbs moisture!

To fertilize. Place your compost or simply coffee grounds in a filter, roll it and bury it in the soil: rolling the filter will prevent the water from dispersing your fertilizer before it has properly integrated the soil.
