Water is life giving. All plants need it. As we bring plants into our home, we should be mindful of their need to adjust to the new environment. They need a bit of tender love and care, and we may as well do it in style. This brass plant mister, sprays a fine mist over the plant, keeping its leaves, tendrils, and soil moist.
Plant misters were popularized in England during the 19th century as bringing plants and nature into the home became a common practice among the upper echelons of society. As exotic plants were brought from all over the vast British Empire and as botanical societies developed throughout Europe, many nonnative plants needed to adjust to different growing conditions. Used to keep exotic and hydrophilic plants wet, this brass plant mister will develop a patina with time and use. The natural aging of brass can be mitigated by using a brass polishing cloth or brass polish, or you can leave it to antique for generations to come.
