Misting Houseplants

Numerous scientific studies show that plants in the home have both physical and psychological effects. Did you know that plants can:

  • Purify the air.
  • Increase concentration and productivity.
  • Relieve stress and anxiety.
  • Boost your mood in winter.
  • Help you sleep.

In general, houseplants’ potting soil should be kept moist, but not wet. They normally need watering once or twice a week in the spring and summer, but less in the autumn and winter. However, depending on the type of houseplant, this is not always the case.

Misting houseplants is a very simple and effective way to boost humidity The best time to mist your houseplants is in the morning before the sun gets high in the sky, typically between 7 and 9 a.m. The evening, after 5 p.m., is also a great time for misting. If you mist during the hottest, brightest part of the day, the water may evaporate off the leaves before it can be properly absorbed by the plant.

Plants that particularly like misting include:

Lucky bamboo
Zebra plant
Aloe vera
Spider plant
