Conservatories are typically positioned to receive full sun and are built with large windows to let in sunlight. Some of the best plants for conservatories are those native to hot, humid climates, which conservatories can replicate well. They provide an opportunity to grow many plants that otherwise can’t be successfully grown in the UK.
In the heat of summer, conservatories can become very dry and lack humidity. While some plants thrive in these conditions, most benefit from growing in a more humid environment. Sitting pots on a saucer filled with water and pebbles, plus misting the leaves regularly, can increase humidity levels when needed.
