Pebble trays are a simple solution to increase humidity for your plants without allowing your plant to sit directly in water. Plants that thrive in humidity include the following: snake plants, orchids, golden pothos, peace lilies, monsteras, fiddle leaf figs, and more. Here is how you can provide easy humidity to your plants:

  1. Find any shallow dish that holds water and is the appropriate size for the plant.
  2. Fill the tray with decorative pebbles or rocks.
  3. Add water to just below the level of the rocks. Your plant should sit above the pebbles so the roots are not touching the water.
  4. Check regularly that there is water in the dish.

A pebble tray also provides a great area for drainage. It’s a simple trick to happier, healthier plants.
