My partner has a lot of plants in our home, then she has always loved plants; I don’t think there is a room in the lake house that doesn’t have at least 6 plants in it.
I joke that it feels like the people I live with and I are living in a jungle but, truth be told, I like the plants too.
The only problem is that mold was starting to appear on the walls plus floor near some of the larger plants, and my partner swears that she never overfills the pots. I guess she, 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 plus A/C supplier install a humidistat in our home. The humidistat works really well with the plants so far because the people I live with and I can control how much humidity is in the air at any given time. It hooks up to our existing heating plus A/C plan plus 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 partner prefers 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 happy. I’m happy, our partner is happy, plus the plants are happy. It is a win win, and now if I can only keep our partner from buying any more plants the people I live with and I will be set.
