HUMIDIFY YOUR HOUSEPLANTS

 

    

Most of your house plants are varieties of tropical or sub-tropical plants. At this time of year, with fans and air-conditioners being on more frequently, the air in your house can become very dry. So we need to give our humidity-loving plants a little extra help. This can be done by making a "pebble tray."



To make a pebble tray:

1. Spread a 1-inch deep layer of pebbles in a waterproof tray.

2. Then pour water into the tray until the water is about 1/2 inch deep.

3. Set your plant pots on the pebbles.

The water in the tray will evaporate slowly, humidifying the immediate area around the plant.

To provide constant humidity, regularly refill the pebble tray with water.

Your plants are going to love you for this!

Gardening-tip:



Is Your Lawn Dry?

Lawns need up to an inch of water each week to do well. If it doesn't rain a lot in your area, you'll have to water.

A good way to see if you lawn needs water - walk across it.

If your lawn shows footprints after you walk across it, it's dry and needs water.
