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:
- Find any shallow dish that holds water and is the appropriate size for the plant.
- Fill the tray with decorative pebbles or rocks.
- 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.
- 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.
