HUMIDITY & AIR MOVEMENT 

For beautiful, thriving orchids, provide your orchids with humidity. Without adequate humidity, the leaves will shrivel – despite watering the orchid’s roots. To give my orchids proper humidity and air circulation you will need three tools: a humidifier a humidistat – a little gadget that tells the humidity and temperature – and a fan.

Humidifier

total comfort humidifier

 

This humidifier will do a lot more to raise humidity levels for your orchids than a tray of pebbles filled with water under your orchids. This humidifier is quiet and has a large 2-gallon tank. The dual top-fill tanks make it easy to re-fill. And, if you ever need to warm up your orchid environment, you can turn on a warm mist.

humidistat

This humidistat makes it easy to track high and low temperatures and humidity levels. Pores on an orchid’s leaves are called stomata. These pores open allowing the orchid to breathe. Without proper humidity levels, this process will dehydrate the orchid. On the other hand, ideal humidity results in thriving, amazingly beautiful orchids.

By providing your orchids with proper air movement you will be able to protect your orchids from a host of bacteria that may grow on the orchid’s leaves as well as temperature changes.
