“Misting is one of the top things that you can do for your houseplants. I advise my clients to mist their houseplants one to two times per week.” Generally speaking, thinner leaves are an indication a plant will need extra humidity.
Beside above, how do you mist a plant without a spray bottle?
Create a naturally humid environment by placing plants on a tray lined with small pebbles and half-filled with water. Or take advantage of moisture in the soil by constructing a loose tent with clear plastic film over a recently watered plant.
Thereof, how can I mist my plants without getting water everywhere?
You can use non-draining pots, drip trays or you can water your indoor plants in a sink to avoid any mess. You could also use a controlled watering method such as a self-watering pot, watering spike or watering with ice cubes.
What plants should you not mist?
Also, don’t mist plants that don’t require a lot of moisture, like succulents, dragon tree (Draceana marginata), fiddle leaf fig (Ficus lyrata), yucca, pothos, ponytail plant (Beaucarnea recurvata), cissus and spider plant.
Misting houseplants is a very simple and effective way to boost humidity. “Misting is also an easy solution to the risk of overwatering your plants,” he adds, instructing to, “pay attention to the color and texture of the leaves on your plant. Plants with brown or dry leaf tips will benefit from regular misting.”
Misting too often can create too much water in the soil, so your plants can become waterlogged and this can lead to root-rot. If the conditions in your home don’t lend themselves to misting, then don’t do it.
Misting is beneficial for many different types of houseplants, especially plants that are native to tropical areas. Daily misting using an inexpensive spray bottle can make a big difference to the health of your indoor plants.
