THE next time you open a fresh can of pop, remember that you can quench your flowers' thirst along with your own.

Particularly, a specific type of soda can help you grow your azaleas.

To ensure that the bins and buckets don't get blown away by the wind before they've collected enough rainwater, she weighs them down by putting rocks in them.

And, she explained how she prevents the water from getting smelly and growing bacteria or algae.

"I'll use that water up before it ever has a chance to form any kind of smell, get stagnated, or anything," she stated.
