Below you can check the most efficient up-to-date ways to humidify your home oasis.
1. Spraying. A well-known method, often used for flowers. It has a temporary effect and does not increase the humidity for a long time (gardeners usually use it for hygienic purposes). Also, not all plants will tolerate such a procedure, only those with very hard leaves: ficuses, monstera, succulents. Over-spraying can also lead to the origination of small pests. Each method has its own advantages, though: for example, if a spider mite appears on a flower, spraying can help a lot, since the mite does not tolerate high humidity
Water for such a procedure should be boiled and then allowed to cool slightly to room temperature. Thanks to this, the flower will not have a high temperature drop, which will eliminate a lot of stress, and you can also avoid the appearance of salt stains on the leaves.
2. Pallet with drainage. Pebble trays cause water evaporation, which increases the humidity in the entire room. The pot with the plant itself must be in a different container, since moisture must not be allowed to enter through the drainage holes. It will be a plus if the tray has a special mesh and a deep bottom, so that it is more convenient to add water, clean the container and place the plant directly on this mesh. Well-known expanded clay is well suited for drainage. Note that this option helps to grow even very capricious plants.
3. Vessels with water. It is still more primitive here, if the green inhabitant is placed on the windowsill, under which the battery is located, then you just need to put containers with water, quite wide, so that the evaporation area is as high as possible. Add water periodically.
4. Household humidifiers. The easiest way to increase humidity is to buy a humidifier. We recommend using Honeywell, TaoTronics Cool, Vicks Warm, or Pure Guardian. The area of influence of a humidifier is huge, so it will be useful both for the beloved plants and their owners.
