Do you have indoor plants in your home? They can help reduce stress, lighten your mood, lessen air pollutants, increase creativity, and add a natural touch of beauty to any space. Like humans, plants can benefit from the use of the Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier. We can breathe easier, moisturize our skin, and combat airborne allergies using a humidifier, but how does that affect the plants we live with? Continue reading on to learn how a humidifier can be an indoor plant’s best friend when used properly.
Water Your Plants Less Frequently
The most obvious way the Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier can help your indoor plants, and you; is by lowering the frequency of watering. The humidity inside of your home is generally a lot lower than that of the outdoor space your plants come from. Raising the humidity in your home can help most indoor plants as they can gather the moisture needed to live from the air. Many tropical plants require a constant source of water which means doing your best to remember to stay on schedule. With the Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier, a six-liter reservoir reduces the need to always water your plants.
Create a Natural Environment for Your Plants
Many indoor plants come from places where they thrive from a healthy amount of humidity. If you have ever been to a home or office that has a plant that looks withered, it might be due to very dry indoor conditions. An air conditioner or heater can rob moisture from the air, as can too much sunlight; this can be a nuisance to us but seriously harm plants. Unlike cactus, the root systems of many indoor and tropical plants are very small or non-existent, which means they require greater moisture. You’ll want to get your hygrometer reading between 40-50% humidity as you use your Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier, this simulates the natural environment your plants normally flourish in.
More Effective Than Misting
It’s common to see people misting their indoor plants by using a spray bottle to coat the leaves of their plants with water. Unfortunately, they are adding very little to the health of their plants and could potentially harm them. Misting only increases humidity for a very small window of time, generally not enough for any plant while overdoing it can lead to mold or fungus. If you have a plant that gets direct sunlight, it is possible to burn the leaves as tiny drops of water act like a magnifying glass for light to pass through which is seen through spotting. The best way to keep your indoor plants hydrated is by using a humidifier like the Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier. A humidifier adds moisture to a whole area and will not just spray water droplets on your plants, with a 500 square foot coverage area, you can spread out your plants to maintain optimal coverage.
Add Humidity During Optimal Times
Mold and fungus can be a serious issue for plants that get too much water indoors. While you may want to water your lawn or outdoor plants when the sun is low or at night, indoor plants need to undergo their natural transpiration process. Transpiration is how leaves breathe out water from their system, it is a natural function that can be disrupted by too much moisture in the air at the wrong times. The best time to turn on your Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier for your indoor plants is around 8:00 AM and let it run until after lunch, so around 1:00 PM. If the humidity still isn’t high enough you can simply allow it to run a little longer as your plants require a bit more moisture. Keeping a daily schedule for your humidifier will help your plants grow to their best potential, of course, a hygrometer will allow you to gauge when to make changes as seasons change.
Safe for Every Room
You’ll want to properly space out your indoor plants so that you can place your Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier within a few feet of your plants, but somewhere in the center of the room. Using a cool mist humidifier is also safer for you and your plants as no heating element reduces the risk of burning anything that may come into contact with it. A general rule to keep everyone and everything safe and healthy is to use only distilled water in your humidifier and to clean it as frequently as needed. Keeping up with the Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier is easy, it shuts off when it runs out of water and eliminates the need for expensive filters; it’s simple to maintain.
Using a humidifier is a great life hack when caring for indoor plants. With the Everlasting Comfort ultrasonic humidifier, you’re able to safely and effectively hydrate your plants. By reducing the frequency of needing to water your plant’s soil, you’re giving yourself time back in your day to enjoy the lush, colorful tropical plants you have gathered to live with you. So add a humidifier to your home and give your plants the environment they deserve, you’ll also enjoy the benefits of proper amounts of humidity in the air.
