Deutsch - Crops need humidity to be able to survive.
Did you know that herbaceous vegetation want water to face up? Water to the plant is like air in a balloon. The limp balloon becomes rigid when air is forced into it. An herbaceous plant turns into capable of arise when water fills cells. That's the reason vegetation wilt from the lack of water.

Dry air surrounding a plant causes a plant to loose much of its reserve water because it breathes. The more moisture within the air surrounding the plant slows down the amount of moisture escaping. Subsequently, it isn't solely essential that the roots have moisture, but the surrounding air as effectively.

Cactus (succulents) and different crops with thick, waxy, or leathery leaves can tolerate dry air better than others. They retailer water in their leaves and stems for dry days. Just like a camel storing water for long treks throughout the desert.

Plants which have thinner leaves are more inclined to affected by the shortage of moisture in the air. In other phrases, the extra humidity, the higher. I say this with "tongue-in-cheek", however. High humidity is the breading ground for fungus- do not over do it!

As soon as once more, take note of your vegetation because their signs will inform you if the air is just too dry. Curled leaves and dry leaf ideas are a good indication of dry air. Dry air could cause flower buds to show brown and fall off.

An energy efficient house can be a plant's worst enemy.

Just the typical house comprises lower than 30% humidity! Even lower in some energy environment friendly houses. Not even good for cactus or other succulents. Deserts have extra humidity.

Another factor is the realm during which you reside. The West/Southwest have areas of very low humidity. Areas of the South and Northeast are identified for high humidity. For plants, a relative humidity (amount of moisture within the air) between 50 to 60 percent is good.

One other "varmint" for crops is the air-con system. With a purpose to cool the house, an air conditioner removes moisture from the air.

How can you elevate the humidity?

There are some approaches you may take so as to add moisture to the air. Use saucers to position the vegetation in. Fill the saucer with water. The evaporation of the water from the saucer will help add moisture to the air immediately surrounding the plant. CAUTION! Do not permit the bottom of the pot to take a seat in the water. This will trigger root rot, formation of fungus, and different issues. Use one thing to maintain the pot elevated out of the water.

Some pots include saucers that are designed to hold the pot above the gathering of water. If you don't have these, merely place rocks within the saucer that are massive sufficient to forestall the pot from sitting directly in the water.

A humidifier works great in areas of low humidity. Some put in air conditioning methods have this as an added characteristic of operation.

As a last resort, try misting the crops with a water bottle sprayer. Works great, just more work. Some business greenhouses use misting programs entirely for watering crops.
