Humidity Harms Household Plants

Humidity is pretty much never seen in our house, yet you should often watch your plants keenly to prevent them from getting destroyed by the dampness in the soil.

When you possibly see your plants getting rotten or decayed, mildew or mold, then its high time that you should provide some fresh air flow for the plants or ventilate it so that your beautiful plants don’t perish away.

Despite the high moisture content, even minimal or decreased amount of moisture could have an impact on your plants as they completely drain the water in the plants more rapidly than they are capable of replenishing it.

When you come across the symptoms like the leaves turning brown, collapsing or falling of buds then these are due to the cause of reduced amount of humidity in the plants. This is more common in the cold and dry winter season as you make use of heaters at home.

Here are some useful methods to follow to control the humidity conditions of the soil so as to maintain fabulous and healthy looking indoor plants.

* It is not essential to water your plants routinely. Watering must be done only when the plants require them. Hence look into the soil in the pot to see if the plants have enough moisture content , else you could provide them with enough water.

* Also it is mandatory to supply the plants a blend of soil and fertilizer
which helps keep the water intact for extended hours. In contrast, if you use a sandy mixture, it will result in the water emptying or draining out quickly.

* Hence to control and maintain the level of humidity that is best suited for your plants, you can set up an electrical humidifier and a dehumidifier to increase and decrease the levels of humidity respectively.

*Place the plants in a location that is devoid of draft which could make the plants get dried completely.
