I mist lightly between waterings and they are ok. I grow mine cold in winter and warm in summer.........they are ok but could be better. I should water the coccinea hybrids a lot more than I do when it's cooler. But I think intermittent mistings is a great solution.

For what it's worth, I recently had issue with low humidity as well. I grow in my house, and couldn't keep the humidity up to 40% even with ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers. So, I bought an evaporative whole house humidifier, and wa la! My humidity levels are staying at 50% or higher, which is great. IT's a Vonair, and it works wonderfully. Amazon!
