The best part is that you probably already have all of these ingredients sitting in your kitchen -- perfect for performing an emergency procedure on your poor little plants.

1. Cinnamon

The cinnamon is going to kill harmful fungus, but at the same time, the herb helps promote growth in the roots of your plant. So if there is a specific wound or cutting on the plant, sprinkle it with cinnamon to help the plant both heal and grow.
2. Apple cider vinegar
1/4 cup apple cider vinegar
1 cup water

Mix up your apple cider vinegar with water in a spray bottle and use it to promote growth in your plants. Some plants actually need acidic soil, and if the soil is lacking that extra acidity, your plant might be suffering. It acts as an all-natural fertilizer and could really help turn your plants back around.
3. Milk
1/4 cup milk
1 cup water

This might sound crazy, but yes, it actually works. Milk can act as a natural fertilizer for your plants, helping add nutrients like calcium to the soil that get soaked up by your plant and help it thrive.
But, don't use too much milk. If you spray too much it's going to spoil and can actually promote mold growth. So, use sparingly to add just a little bit of a boost to your dying plants.
