Humidity is a Crucial Part of any Grow — Whether Seeds, Cuttings or Mature Plants
When starting out, seeds and propagated cuttings can struggle to get going. With little to no root system, they rely on atmospheric humidity levels to maintain moisture and CO2 levels within plant tissue.
Mature plants constantly work to balance water intake through roots and evaporation through leaves.
Humidity is often overlooked, but it is crucial in regulating gas exchange and water movement in plants.
Grow your plants the right way.
Maintain humidity in your grow space at the optimal level and watch plants thrive!
At the right RH levels:
- Stomatal opening/closing is regulated
- Respiration and photosynthesis rates are optimized
- Leaves maintain correct turgor pressure
- Roots take in appropriate amounts of nutrients and water from the soil
- Overall plant health is strengthened
Strong young plants grow into mature adults with noticeable increases in foliage quality & yields.
What are stomata and why are they important?
Stomata are pores on the plant leaf and key to regulating the transpiration of water and intake of carbon dioxide. Humidity affects if they are open or closed.
Dry conditions trigger plants to close their stomata to prevent water loss/stress -- and onward flow of effects -- but then inhibits CO2 absorption and photosynthesis.
Increasing humidity will open stomata & help plants
while minimizing water loss through evaporation.
Prevent Effects of Water Stress
Humidity control helps mitigate:
Canoeing / Leaf Curl
All these occur when low humidity pulls moisture from the plant's leaves and core.
When the air is really dry, transpiration increases and water evaporates from the leaves quickly. Nutrients concentrate in plant tissues causing toxicities. Plant leaves curl upward to protect themselves from water loss.
Stop losing time fixing problems related to low humidity. Instead, grow plants as nature intended.
With Minder.Humi, augmenting water vapour encourages plants to transpire intuitively, giving you a natural, low-cost way to avert plant issues.
How does it work?
Maintaining consistent relative humidity levels is easy with Minder.Humi.
The unit consistently monitors RH, turning the humidifier on automatically when values drop below a pre-determined level set on the controller unit. No need to manually watch levels to ensure perfect humidity conditions.
