I'm searching threads and haven't stumbled upon a good thread yet, but I know I've seen them in the past.
I'm currently working a misting system for my various plants. There's two reasons for it.
One, I can't keep changing the humidifier tank every day (or twice a day). If I skip a day, the lights burn enough to drop humidity down to the 30% range, and everything dries out very quickly.
Two, to help keep things slightly moist (not excessive), again the lights do a great job of drying everything out and i don't want to panic while going on vacation.
I found a good nozzle that delivers something like 0.4 micron droplet size, I rigged one up to my ro system and it's so fine that it's hardly even noticeable when you put your hand though it! So this is a very very fine and light mist. Tonight I assembled a 4' stick that has 4 of these nozzles on it, of course forgot a few parts so couldn't test it out yet.
So while a bunch of the plants here will probably love it, I don't know how the Nepenthes will. I swear I've read posts where people say to avoid getting leaves wet all the time, but then I see other posts here where it says it's not a problem. From pics I saw, larger green houses look like they top watering systems too for monster Nepenthes. My setup has good airflow, in my opinion, and a good temperature range for Highlands. I don't feel anything is really stagnant. As for the frequency, I was going to try to start the misting twice a day maybe 11am, and 6pm for a 1 min cycle each time.
So what are you thoughts? Misting good or misting bad?
