Why should you buy a plant mister?
Many plants benefit from misters more than just the traditional watering can. A mister will be a useful tool if plants require more humidity without getting saturated. A mister is also helpful for gently cleaning a plant’s leaves of dust and insect spores. Most misters are compact and hand-held, making them easy to use for small plants throughout the house. Other misters are used for a larger garden with more plants.
What should you consider when shopping for a plant mister?
- Handle and Dispenser: Some misters work just like a spray bottle, while others have more unique handles that sit comfortably in your fingers and utilize the thumb to mist. Nearly every mister designed for plant health has a continuous mist so you can hydrate evenly.
- Decorative: Some plant misters look more like basic gardening tools, while others look vintage and decorative. If you have plants that need misting attention frequently, you might want to consider a mister that looks pretty sitting alongside your plants.
Do all plants need a mister?
While many plants need the gentle hydration of a mister, not all plants do. Some heartier plants can suffer by being misted instead of their soil getting water the traditional way. If you’re unsure, you may want to research your specific plant’s care instructions.
