Hi, I'm Dave Epstein with Growing Wisdom. And today, we’re going to talk about misting your plants.
Misting is one of the most effective and easiest ways to keep your plants happy. And it also helps keep insects like aphids and spider mites away. The plants that will benefit from misting are those that like a higher humidity like ferns, orchids or any of your other tropical plants. You don’t need to mist plants like cactuses. They’re not going to benefit from all that added humidity.
So, what do you use to mist your plants? I simply take a bottle that has a mister on it, when it's done and use that. Before using the bottle to mist your plants, it's important you clean it very well. The first time I used the bottle for misting, I like to spray several times to clean out any residual material from the tube. So, when should you mist? The best time to mist is early in the morning. That allows the daylight hours for the mist to dry off the plants. Misting at night can promote disease and other problems for your plants.
How often should you mist? If you can mist once a day, your plants are going to be very happy. Misting really is a great tool along with perhaps a humidifier to keep your plants happy especially in winter. It's really that simple. A bottle with a misting setting, some water, walks around your house as much as you can and mist those plants.
