    and would i be able to use regular tap water considering it boils the water and its the steam that makes the mist?

    Hmm... the hard substances like iron might stay but other more chemicals might still be in the steam, such as chlorine.

    Warm heat humidifiers actually boil the water. The end product is pure steam. You can use tap water in it safely for your plants.

    The steam will also contain any volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that were in the tap water, as these also evaporate with the steam. In domestic water distillers the condensate is usually passed through a carbon filter to remove these.

    I'd check the temperature of the steam if I was you... it could 'steam cook' your plants. Growers often use ultrasonic humidifiers in terrariums, as these don't boil the water.

    its warm for about 30 seconds, it comes out warm but quickly cools in the atmosphere seeing as its just mist.
