“Optimal indoor humidity and conversion optimization foraging”
In the past two years, there have been a number of papers on how optimal indoor moisture management foraging and conversion can lead to the best foraging yield, which has been correlated with a lower rate of mortality and a better quality of life for humans.
But is it possible to optimize indoor humidity for optimal foraging for humans?
A study published in Nature Plants shows that it is possible, and it involves a very simple and inexpensive method of converting the ideal indoor humidity in the soil to a slightly higher ideal.
The method uses an optical principle called “optical damping” to determine how much humidity is actually in the atmosphere, which allows for a precise measurement of humidity at the plant level.
The authors have already developed a model to show that this method is actually very robust.
In this article, we review this work, explore the practical applications of this method, and discuss how it can be used for optimization of indoor humidity.
