How do pebble trays work?
Likewise, people ask, what's a pebble tray?
A pebble tray or pebble saucer is a simple, easy-to-make gardening tool used mostly for indoor plants. Any low dish or tray can be used along with water and pebbles or gravel to create a humid local area for plants that need a little moisture.
Beside above, how do I keep my plants humid? Misting plants, growing them in groups and using water-filled pebble trays are the most popular methods for raising humidity. Misting plants with a fine spray of water raises the humidity around the plant, but the effect is temporary. You should not mist plants with hairy leaves, such as African violets, however.
One may also ask, what does a humidity tray do?
A humidity tray is a shallow dish of pebbles and water that a bonsai tree sits on top of. Water can wick up through the base of the pot keeping it perpetually wet. When the water in the tray evaporates, it increases the humidity of the area immediately around the tree.
