When I talk about misting, it is important to note two things:
1st, Just a casual misting is not enough. The plant must be wet, not moist. Mist over every part of the plant, top and bottom of leaves paying close attention to the tips as well. Make sure the plant is completely moistened.
2nd, Misting will increase the humidity for a very short time. To maintain a higher humidity level you can place standing water close to your plant.
Keep in mind that while misting is an important tool, it does not replace a good soaking.
