Plant Misting Made Easy

by Charlie Nardozzi


During the hot days of summer, plants benefit from a misting of cool water, just like we do. The Plant Mister makes spritzing plants a breeze. It’s ideal for misting outdoor or indoor plants to keep the foliage clean, raise the humidity, and prevent insect pests such as spider mites.

The Plant Mister features a 16-ounce container that only needs pumping a few times to apply minutes of continual mist. It comes with a carrying strap and a 48-inch-long hose, enabling you to reach hanging plants and window boxes. A small brass nozzle helps deliver a gentle spray that’s perfect for orchids and ferns. You can even turn the mister on yourself during those hot, late-summer days.
