With the arrival of the heating season, the house's humidity decreases sharply, falling by 30% and below! These conditions are not suitable for tropical plants; the ideal humidity in the room is about 65-90%.
To provide the plant with optimal humidity, we recommend:
1. move it to the other side of the window away from the heating devices;
2. transfer the plant to the kitchen, where humidity is higher than in other rooms;
3. buy a humidifier: besides being beneficial to plants, this device makes the air better for humans as well.
Since the humidity decreases, the soil in the pot dries up faster. But when your plant is on a cold windowsill, the ground in the pot can stay wet for a long time. Unfortunately, it is in winter that house flowers may suffer from excessive watering. Therefore, we advise you to water the plant only when the top layer of the soil looks dry. To estimate the humidity of the ground, just dip your finger 2-3 cm into the soil, and you will feel it right away.
Keep an eye on your plant, and it will tell you if it receives enough moisture. If the leaves turn yellow, then water should be limited, and when the tips dry and turn brown, water more often.
