Just asking - to see if humidity can build up in the room outside the green house, where mold could grow on the walls etc, unless the room has nice ventilation.

Nice misting setup!
Generally the heat and humidity are contained within the room but the margins on the door to the room are pretty tight. I have no issue during the summer when I use an AC to manage the heat buildup. I use a window fan to cool during the winter and since the air isn't vented outside like on an A/C unit it pushes the air into the house, although its not very noticeable. No issues with mold. I keep RH between 60-70%

I just used high gloss bathroom paint that has an anti-mildew additive.

Nothing above and there is a tray they sit in so the plants below get no benefit. The entire room is humidified by two humidifiers on a humidistat. The misting does assist the general humidity of the room but I still need humidifiers to hit my desired RH.
