Gravel benches provide humidity to orchids. The benches are filled with water which evaporates around the plant and supplies it with humidity. Instead of individual trays filled with gravel that are used on a window sill, a large scale bench is used inside a greenhouse for the orchids. This allows more plants to receive the humidity.
