My wife has a lot of plants in our home.
- She has always loved plants, however i don’t guess there is a room in the cabin that doesn’t have at least 6 plants in it.
I joke that it feels as if the two of us are living in a jungle but, truth be told, I prefer the plants too. However, the only problem is that mold was starting to appear on the walls and floor near some of the larger plants… My wife swears that she never overfills the pots. I suppose I believe her! Based on where the mold is it does not appear to be coming from overwatering. I suspect that it is a result of the high humidity that the plants produce. It is for this reason that I had our local heating and air conditioning corporation install a humidistat in our home. The humidistat works genuinely well with the plants so far because the two of us can control how much humidity is in the air at any given time. It hooks up to our existing heating and air conditioning system and reads the humidity percentages in the air. If the air is too humid then it removes some of the humidity. If the air is not humid enough then it adds humidity. My wife loves it because she says it is better for the plants. I love it because the mold has not returned since getting the humidistat. So now everybody is ecstatic. I’m ecstatic, my loving wife is ecstatic, and the plants are ecstatic. It is a win win, but now if I can only keep my loving wife from buying any more plants the two of us will be set.
