Plants like Bird of Paradise, Philodendron, Fern, Iron plant, Bella Palm will enjoy if you mist their leaves often.
Plants like Majesty Palm and Spider plant should have air misted around them.

Heat dries out the air the most, and misting pants that love humidity daily during the cold season is essential.
AC will remove moisture from the air as well but not as much. Mist your humidity loving plants at least few times a week during the warm season.
A humidifier is also a good option. Your skin and your plants will benefit from it equally 🙂
Why Are Leaves Turning Yellow?
This can be happening for a few reasons.
- Plant is under stress due to environmental changes or while coping with an acclimation period to its new home.
- Some older leaves might turn yellow and shed. Usually, it happens to the lower leaves.
- Over- watering. It is important to provide enough time for the soil to dry to some degree, and always test the soil before adding water.
- Under-watering. If you have not watered your plant for a while and soil feels too dry, give your plant a good drink and make sure to test the soil at least once every 2 weeks.
Why Are Leaves Rotting?
Rotting leaves are a definite sign of over-watering and can also be the sign of root rot.
Use a pencil or stick to fluff up the soil to allow oxygen get through and to help soil to dry out faster.
Give your plant a “dessert treatment”, as we call longer than usual breaks between watering, to allow soil to dry. Lower watering frequency for the future or/and use less amount of water for each watering. Always check soil before watering plants.
