    Default misting orchids

    Is it a good idea to mist orchids to add more humidity. They are in a shaded south window and it tends to get hot there. They are on a humidity tray and I run a humidifier by them....I am in Arizona.

    If you do mist, be sure to keep fans blowing on your orchids so that they will dry off completely before night-fall. Mist in the early part of the day.
