Dry Air Got Your Plants Down? Here’s How to Increase Humidity.

Houseplants require a certain level of humidity to thrive, and sometimes the indoor environment can be too dry, especially during winter months. Here are some tips on how to increase the humidity for your houseplants:

  1. Group your plants together: Placing your plants in a group helps create a microclimate of higher humidity. Plants release moisture into the air through a process called transpiration, and having them close together can create a more humid environment.
  2. Use a pebble tray: Fill a tray with pebbles and water, and place your plant pot on top of the pebbles. The water will evaporate, increasing the humidity around the plant. Just make sure that the bottom of the pot is not touching the water to avoid overwatering the plant.
  3. Use a humidifier: A humidifier is a great way to increase the humidity levels in your home. Place it near your plants, and it will help maintain the moisture level.
  4. Misting: Misting your plants with a spray bottle of water is an easy way to provide them with extra moisture. Be sure to mist the leaves and not the soil, as wet soil can lead to root rot.
  5. Add a moisture-loving plant: Some plants, such as ferns and peace lilies, thrive in humid conditions. Adding a moisture-loving plant to your collection can help increase the humidity around all your plants.
  6. Keep plants away from heat sources: Heat sources like radiators, heaters, or vents can dry out the air and lower the humidity levels. Keep your plants away from these sources to maintain a more humid environment.

Remember, every plant has different humidity requirements, so be sure to research your plant’s specific needs before making any changes.
