    In my experience, misting washes away the dew, you get globes of water on the leaves, but nothing sticky. It wont harm the plants, and I've found it to be a good way to ease shocked plants back, but you can say goodbye to stick until it gets moved out of direct fire. Of course, it could be possible, if you can, I'd say put the humidified up top, then the non sticky below that, you should be able to keep the lower plants out of the direct line of fire, which is what you want. Hope that's of some help.

    I would stay away from the Petsmart ones. They aren't very tough. I don't remember the name but if you search theirs a place called something Mart and it has tons of very tough ones and they're cheaper too. Search ultrasonic foggers.

    Its mainland mart that you thinking of. Deffinatly the place to get one and be sure to get the float for it as well. This will allow you to use a much large resivour for your fogger.

    Yup, thats the one. And you might consider buying a float whcih keeps the mister just below water level to produce maximum mist. Don't let the waterlevel get too low, I think the reason the water in my terrarium got up to 50*C was becuz the mister was standing in the terrarium, or the water level got too high or low. Hard to explain, really, I'll get a pic soon.

    I don't know whether the water vapor containing minerals in the air is a problem, might be if it lands on the soil and contaminates it. So use mineral free water just to be careful.

    Yes, I tried to use an air pump to circulate the mist after wrongly thinking that the mist would accumulate and float upwards out of its own accord, but don't do that otherwise you'll have a mist storm ravaging in your terrarium. The plants won't like it, believe me. Poor us who have to grow plants indoors in a terrarium and not experience sharing the joy of a garden where mother nature can do all the work of water, light and space provision. Well, its gotta be those lucky few... [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]

    I wouldn't say anything about mist messing up dew though, unless its really blasting mist, otherwise I should think it would add to it.

    ever week or so i turn my humidifier on all the way on high (its a real humidifier under that terrarium attatched to the tank with a tube)

    all the water vapor comes out and makes the terrarium white. this is how i water my terrarium. when i turn it off, the drosera plants have huge globules of dew on them and look great, however most of it's just water condesation and while it wont hurt the plants at all, it'll just dilute the dew.

    More dew - more fun mwhahaha! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
    I used to use that method to water the seeds which were not under tray watering (bit like rain in nature), but eventually gave up after one of my seed pot was flooded from the mister spraying water into it, and I had to spend a whole hour saving the seeds in ways that I would not attempt to reproduce now...
