Indoor air is dry, especially with the heater running. Houseplant expert and author Lisa Eldred Steinkopf says, "The most important thing is to raise the humidity during the winter months." Not only will the humidity keep the plants from drying out, but it also helps to deter pests. "This is imperative as low humidity is a dinner bell for spider mites," warns Steinkopf. Using a humidifier in your home during the winter will not just help out your plants, but can also help clear congestion.

If you don't need a humidifier for an entire room, you can localize the humidity to each plant with a pebble tray. You can buy one or DIY your own version by adding pebbles to the plant's saucer and add water to the top of the pebbles. "Stand your plant, still in its own saucer, on top of the pebbles," Stienkopf explains, "Keep the pebble tray full of water and the evaporating water will help keep the humidity up around your plant." Here's another simple trick to keep your houseplants from dying.
