How to Make a Humidity Tray

If you are caring for an orchid, you already know that these pretty plants can be a little temperamental. Keep it happy with this simple DIY orchid humidity tray. It’s simple to make and really works!



  • If you plan on keeping this humidity tray on a wooden surface, start by hot-gluing a cork trivet to the bottom of the drip tray.
  • Then, fill the tray with decorative stones, pebbles, or even glass stones. Opt for larger stones to keep the tray easier to clean and use.
  • Add water to the tray, and set your orchid on top.
  • Keep an eye on the water levels, and refill as needed. Make sure to clean the tray and stones at least monthly.
