liquidambar, stock monitoring, scorching


When growing Liquidambar in containers, it is important to ensure a good and regular supply of water and to prevent the substrate from drying out. Any lack of water can cause damage to the plant in a short time, such as scorching on the outer parts of the leaves.


By measuring humidity, it is possible to adjust irrigation schedules with precision, avoiding low levels of humidity in the container. By monitoring the plants in various positions in the plot, it is also possible to eliminate the differences in humidity due to different exposure to the sun or wind.
