    Sorry if that sounded condescending. I was just trying to be clear. How is one to know exactly what others take from what we post?

    Very interesting thread; wish I could add some advice but am about to go through my own experimentation as I set up my first greenshouse (yes, I am still building it after nine months :0)).

    Okay, so now I understand that the misting system that came with my greenhouse kit should not even be considered into my humidity calculations, but only the vaporized particles that are spread by the fans. I hope I got that straight...This is making me also consider if I should just buy a fogger in addition to the misting system. Texas can have a very dry environment.

    I am growing indoors for now and was just about to go purchase a few humidifiers (the cattleyas are shriveling), but from what I am reading here they will probably not do any good because the rest of the house will suck up any humidity they may produce.

    Please continue this discussion, I am learning

    Keeping the relative humidity in your home at around 50% is good for your plants, you, and your house.

    Of course the misters are part of the humidity thinking. My point about the "mist versus humidity" was that just because the mist is only visible in one part of the enclosure, it doesn't mean the humidification coming from it is only there.

    I suggest you open another thread to address your greenhouse questions, so we don't hijack Nicki's.
