WHEN MISTING PLANTS
It's best to mist your plants in the morning, when the sun is not too strong and the temperature is cooler. This will give the water time to evaporate before the heat of the day sets in.
Use clean, lukewarm water.
Avoid misting under direct sunlight - The water droplets on the leaves can act a bit like a magnifying glass and intensify the sun's rays, potentially causing sunburn or scorching of the leaves. Additionally, misting in direct sunlight can cause the water to evaporate too quickly, reducing its effectiveness in providing the plant with necessary moisture.
Mist evenly over the plant but avoid flowers.
Monitor after misting to ensure proper drying - If they seem to be showing signs of stress or damage-- such as spots or dark patches, you may need to adjust your misting schedule or method.
IS IT REALLY NECESSARY TO MIST PLANTS?
It is disputed if it really helps to mist your plants to increase the humidity. For it to have a good effect, you probably need to mist a couple of times per day. But spraying your plants is also a good way to keep the leaves clean from dust and pests - which is important for the plant to be able to absorb as much light as possible, and stay healthy.
