Default Adjusting watering schedule in greenhouse

I keep the humidity in my outdoor greenhouse around 65-100%. I installed a patio misting system and run it for about 10-30 mins when the humility drops below 65%. Because of the high humidity, should I reduce my watering schedule (the typical 7 days)?

I think not.

Water is the driving force for plant growth; the more frequently you soak the roots, the faster and better the growth will be.

Over the decades I grew in a greenhouse (oh, how I miss that....), I gradually adjusted my potting/mounting for each plant individually, so that I could water everything at the same time, as often as daily, if the weather warranted it, and my goal was to water frequently - easy, since I automated it.

My plants never grew better.
