Fish Tank Air Pump For Salvia Divinorum?
    #1566300 - 05/21/03 04:36 PM (13 years, 6 months ago)

Hey all,
Ive got a couple savia d plants that are in failing health because of a lack of humidity. I went to a garden store a got one of those small greenhouses that you can keep indoors and stuff. But it still doesnt hold much humidity as i had hoped. Could a fish tank bubbler in a glass of water raise the humidity to a better level?

I don't think it's needed, how big is the greenhouse related to the plant?
If you're sure it's due to lack of humidity, put a translucent plastic bag with two holes over it until it has become bigger. You are able to adapt salvia to very dry air condition, this only needs to be done gradually.
I'd say mist it once a day for a week or less, then twice a week untill you don't need to mist anymore.

Also watch out not being overwatering the plant, salvia likes high humidity in the air but also likes much air in the soil  :wink:
If you ever see the base of the plant turning brown, take cuttings as soon as possible.

What kind of soil did you use?
I'm having succes with  50%potting soil  30%perlite 20%verm, I  also try to keep soil as dry as possible, giving 1liter water once a week, using 7liter pots.

This is the best I can suggest you to have healthy Salvia :laugh:

The greenhouse isnt all that big, proably about 3' tall, 3' long, and 2' wide. The plants sit nicely in there and have plenty of room. Im guessing its a lack of humidity because the tips of the leaves are getting brown and i read somewhere that its caused by lack of humidity. The soil is a cheap potting soil i got from a dept. store, prolly not the best choice but i didnt figure it would matter. Its possible i have been overwatering it, i had been watering it at least one a day and misting several times a day for a while now. Ill try the bag trick and laying of the watering. Ill let you know how it turns out. Thanks to everyone for there help.  :wink:
