I've had my psychotria viridis for nearly a year now, but it hasn't had much growth. When I first got it, there were two leaves(around 3-4 inches long) on it that fell off, leaving me with basically a twig with some roots. I planted it and it started sprouting some new leaves, but they aren't doing very well. The plant measures around 10 inches high and has around 14 leaves ranging from 1-3 cm long. Some of the leaves are a bit brown at the tips. The humidity has been rather low through the winter, but I keep it watered and mist it occasionally. It's indoors and receives indirect sunlight. What should I do to boost its growth?
I've never grown Psychotria but I know it needs some high humidity. For humidity loving plants I like to take small wooden boxes higher than my pots and use plexiglass to make a little minigreenhouse, and saw a few pieces of wood into corner pieces to support the plexiglass. Then, drill a large hole in either side, and screw circular pieces slightly bigger than the hole onto the sides at the edge of the circular pieces forming a piviting "door" so you can tweak humidity and ventilate once in a while. If you want a bigger box you'll have to add some form of humidifyer. maybe try playing around with something like that.
