Thanks for posting all the ideas. They’re helpful! A mister is a good thing to add, in winter, or year-round, wherever there’s central heat/AC, or the sun’s rays are bearing down through a window. We use filtered water in ours to keep minerals from clogging it up.
Another idea I use when I’m away is a tray filled with rocks and water to bring up the humidity, or sometimes, I set them all on the metal grid that protects our sink bottom. Then I add water just near the planter-bottoms.
In the summer, at the west windows of our dining room, I set colored sea glass in a rimmed crystal platter, add water, then set the platter in a silver tray. The planters sit on top.
I guess just about anything could work, like colorful marbles tightly-fitted and layered over a lipped plastic tray, or even cleaned pebbles...
