I’m just curious as to whether or not misting the plants frequently or at all is beneficial to growing?
yes it is important. Nobody wants a biology lesson so I will keep it simple. plants have structures called stomas, these are little openings in the leaves that the plant takes in gasses with. by misting your plants a couple times a week you are helping these structures to stay open an clean. I am very careful not to over spray in my grow tents, that way I don’t have to clean reflective wall and light covers ect. Also if you do this I would suggest spraying in the early morning when the lights have just come on. this will insure that the moisture on the plant has dried before night cycle. the last thing you need is a mold problem.
