Water Spraying and Misting

Some people spray plants with water to help add moisture in homes. We do not recommend that because water drops can be stuck between leaves and stems, inviting bacteria in, causing botrytis which is decaying and rotting.

Spray leaves only whenever the plant reaches its maximum threshold of thirst. This spraying will be as a treatment to help the plant recover faster, imbibing the water through the leaves, necessary for its survival.

In extreme cases, when a plant was left with no water for a long time & is at the threshold of dying of thirst; plunge the whole pot in a bucket of water, for half an hour to 45 minutes, to help the roots get the maximum chance of reaching the right turgidity. Spraying the leaves with water simultaneously will help a faster recovery.
