WELCOME TO SOAKYOURPLANTS.com, the home of thriving houseplants!!!

We'll make your foliage family healthy and happy again by teaching your the basics of soaking terra-cotta-potted plants in the bathtub. No special equipment required! Once you start soaking terra cotta, you'll never look back!

*****
Just follow these two simple steps:

Step 1. Fill the tub with approx. 4 inches of water
Step 2. Put in your terra cotta planted pots in the water
SOAK THEM FOR ABOUT 1/2 and hour THEN SIT BACK AND LET YOUR PLANTS THANK YOU!

***
Got it? Let's recap:
Ya fill the tub - you put in your plants! Presto, waterlogged terracotta pots that help your plants stay moist in a dry apartment. Watch your plants come back to life! I say "Ressurect" sweet maidenhair fern! "Overcome" begonia tigress!! It's like sparkly voodoo houseplant magic!!!

You crack me up! I love this - your bedazzlement really adds that extra something.

unsure of the name of the antler thingy too, but I happen to know that it is the source of it's magical power (I went to college after all).

Oh my God, you're hilarious! Now all you need to do is market some kind of bathtub for this and you'd have a bonafide As-Seen-on-TV infomercial!
