Indoor Plants Turning Brown? Could be Low Humidity
September 4, 2018
Have you ever struggled with houseplants that turn brown on the tips or edges of their leaves? A lack of humidity indoors can cause many plants to struggle with excess moisture loss. Humidity in the air helps regulate transpiration and water loss or absorption through plants’ leaves.
Tiny seedlings and cuttings are at greater risk for drying out quickly, especially in a dry-air environment. This is why humidity domes are frequently sold with seed-starting kits. It’s crucial to keep humidity levels high around your new seedlings or cuttings, as they have a limited root system (or no roots at all) with which to take up water.
