Plant Misters

The Spruce / Kevin Liang

Like a watering can and pruners, a plant mister is a crucial component of your plant care kit. As indoor gardening pros have told The Spruce, not all species need regular misting, but those native to tropical, humid climates may benefit from weekly or biweekly spritzing.

We researched the best misters for plants and flowers and rounded up options of various sizes, materials, and styles.

Our Top Picks

Best Overall

Modern Sprout Brass & Glass Mister

Brass & Glass Mister


What We Like
  • Attractive design

  • Four colors available

  • Compact, handheld size

What We Don't Like
  • Develops patina over time

Most spray bottles offer the same basic function, but if you ask us, Modern Sprout makes the best plant mister. This 8-ounce bottle is made of brass or glass, depending on the color you choose. It comes in your choice of gold, white, or black and has a shiny brass handle and nozzle.

This spritzer is the perfect handheld size for carrying around your home and doesn't take up much storage space. While it might not be ideal for outdoor gardening, it holds enough water to mist an average-sized indoor plant collection. We like that the container is attractive enough to set out on display on your windowsill, in your office, on a floating shelf, or on your mantle.

The only drawback is that the brass will develop a patina over time. This is a natural process and doesn't affect the quality of the bottle or the water that comes out. But if it bothers you, you can restore the finish with a brass cleaner. At upwards of $30, this isn't the most affordable nor the most expensive mister we found, but in the end, we think the price is right on point.

Best Budget

Driew Plant Mister Spray Bottle

driew Plant Mister Spray Bottle, 10oz


What We Like
  • Affordable

  • Durable and functional

  • Multipurpose design

What We Don't Like
  • Not a high-end look

The Driew Plant Mister is a great budget option. Running you less than $10, this spray bottle gets the job done without a fuss. It's made of durable, BPA-free plastic that works well for indoor gardening while also standing up to outdoor weather conditions. Available in green or smokey black, the transparent design allows you to see how much water is left in the container.

You can count on the nozzle to create a fine, even mist and hold up under heavy daily use. In addition to plant care, you can use this versatile spray bottle for a range of other purposes, like cleaning, cooking, and hair care. The only potential downside of this product is that it doesn't have a display-worthy, high-end look like some other plant misters—but you really can't beat the price.

Dimensions: 2.4 x 7.2 inches | Capacity: 10 ounces | Material: Plastic

Best Continuous Spray

Hula Home Continuous Mist Spray Bottle

Continuous Mist Spray Bottle


What We Like
  • Easy spray function

  • Can be used upside down

  • Leak-proof design

What We Don't Like
  • Spray lasts two seconds

The Hula Home Mist Spray Bottle boasts a continuous spray function—no batteries needed. You pull the trigger once for a single quick spray, and then pull it again to activate the continuous mist feature. Bear in mind the longer mist function only lasts about two seconds, but it'll spare your fingers when spritzing several plants throughout your home.

We like that you can use this plant mister at any angle, even upside down, and still get the fine homogeneous mist. This spray bottle is also totally leak-proof, no matter what angle you're using it or where you place it in your home. The 180-degree twist top makes it super easy to refill, too. Considering all these innovative features, a price tag of under $20 is a steal.

Dimensions: 9.8 x 2.3 inches | Capacity: 10.1 ounces | Material: Plastic

Best Automatic

Mossify Mistr Automatic Continuous Water Mister

Mistr Automatic Continuous Water Mister


What We Like
  • Ultra-fine continuous mist

  • Rechargeable battery

  • A tree planted for every order

What We Don't Like
  • Pricey

  • Charging port not included

If you have lots of plants to care for at home, consider an automatic design, like the Mossify Mistr. With the press of a button, it generates continuous, ultra-fine, rainforest-style water droplets onto your thirsty, humidity-loving foliage and flowers. You can use it indoors or outside, but due to the electrical component, you'll want to store it inside.

This plant mister is conveniently rechargeable, so you never have to replace the batteries. It comes with a USB cable, but you'll have to get your own charging port. The $50 range is pretty steep for a plant mister, but considering the high-tech design, we think the price is warranted. And as a bonus, one tree is planted with every Mossify order.

Dimensions: 11.2 x 3.3 inches | Capacity: 750 milliliters (25.36 ounces) | Material: Non-toxic ABS plastic

Best with Long Nozzle

RuiyiF Plant Mister Bottle with Long Nozzle

Plant Mister Bottle with Long Nozzle


What We Like
  • Good for hard-to-reach plants

  • Large-capacity bottle

  • Durable, user-friendly pump

What We Don't Like
  • Can't be used upside down

  • Not aesthetically pleasing

Looking for something with a longer nozzle? The RuiyiF Plant Mister has a 7-inch nozzle, allowing you to reach up, down, and around into your hard-to-access plants. You can use this spray bottle indoors or outside to give your tropical plants, succulents, and flowers the humidity they crave.

The generously sized bottle holds 1.5 liters of water, and the clear design makes it easy to see how much is remaining. The handle is also durable and user-friendly, expelling an even coating of fine droplets with a single pump. Just a heads up: this plant mister can't be used upside down. And while it's not the most aesthetically pleasing option we found, under $30 is a pretty reasonable price.

Dimensions: 11.7 x 6.5 x 4.5 inches | Capacity: 1.5 liters (52.72 ounces) | Material: Plastic, copper

Best Glass

Ikea Sesamfrön Clear Glass Plant Mister

Sesamfrön Clear Glass Plant Mister


What We Like
  • Budget-friendly

  • Timeless, tasteful design

  • Display-worthy aesthetic

What We Don't Like
  • Plastic portion isn't the most durable

If you like the look of a glass bottle, you'll love this option from Ikea. The Sesamfrön Plant Mister has a clear glass body with tactile dots for added texture and interest. This timelessly tasteful spray bottle is pretty enough to put on display in your home—next to your plants, on a floating shelf, or on a countertop.

It has a stainless steel handle and pump with a plastic straw. Though the plastic portion isn't the most durable, it gets the job done. For under $10, you might even consider buying more than one so you always have an extra on hand in case it breaks. The only other thing to note is that while you can use this to water your outdoor plants, you'll want to store it indoors.

Dimensions: 6.25 x 3.25 inches | Capacity: 8 ounces | Material: Glass, stainless steel, polypropylene

Best Metal

AYTM Globe Flower Mister

Globe Flower Mister

Frank Bros

What We Like
  • Resists rust and scratches

  • Striking globe shape

  • Doubles as home accent

What We Don't Like
  • Expensive

  • Only one finish available

For those partial to metal, we recommend the AYTM Globe Flower Mister. This striking spray bottle is made of stainless steel and coated with an ultra-durable zinc alloy that resists rust and scratches. The unique globe shape is something you'll definitely want to leave out on display, and thanks to the compact design, you'll have no problem finding a spot for it in your home.

While it's called a "flower mister," you can use it to spritz any succulents, palms, climbing vines, and other plants that could use a little humidity. A price tag of $70 is quite a lot for a single plant mister, but considering that it doubles as a chic home accent, we think it might be worth the investment. It also makes a great gift if you're shopping for another plant enthusiast.

Price at time of publish: $70

Dimensions: 6.3 x 3.9 inches | Capacity: 0.25 liters (8.45 ounces) | Material: Zinc alloy, stainless steel

Final Verdict

Overall, we like the Modern Sprout Brass & Glass Mister. This brass spray bottle is the perfect balance of beautiful and functional, creating a fine mist for your plants and doubling as a sleek home accent piece. If you're looking for something more wallet-friendly, you can't go wrong with the durable, multipurpose Driew Plant Mister Spray Bottle.

What to Look for in a Plant Mister


When buying a spray mister for plants, pay attention to the size of the bottle. Options for indoor use are typically on the smaller side, measuring a little over 6 inches tall and roughly 4 inches in diameter, like the AYTM Globe Flower Mister. Prefer something larger? No problem. Just make sure you have room to store it if you don't plan to put it on display.


Capacity is a little different than size—it indicates how much water the container can hold. Water capacities for plant misters range from about 250 milliliters, like the Ikea Sesamfrön Clear Glass Plant Mister, to 1.5 liters, as with the RuiyiF Plant Mister Bottle. The proper capacity will ultimately depend on how many plants you have, the size of your plants, and where you plan to store your mister.


Plant misters are made of various materials. Opaque metal is a popular option, as with the Modern Sprout Brass & Glass Mister. If yours is made of copper or brass like this one, it might develop a patina over time. You'll also find chic glass designs, like the Ikea Sesamfrön Clear Glass Plant Mister. Then there are more basic plastic bottles, like the Driew Plant Mister Spray Bottle, which tend to hold up the best outdoors.

  • Is misting plants good for them?

    Not all plants need to be misted but occasional misting (once or twice a week) can be good for certain houseplants, especially tropical species grown outside their native climates. Always research the care requirements for the specific foliage and flowers you have at home, and remember that misting should be in addition to (not in place of) your regular watering schedule.

  • Do plants prefer warm or cool mist?

    It depends on the species. But in general, plants native to high-humidity environments will prefer a cooler mist on their leaves, while those natively grown in low-humidity climates will benefit from a warmer mist. We recommend researching the specific species you have at home to create the best watering and misting schedule with the proper water temperatures.

  • What is the difference between a mister and a spray bottle?

    There's not necessarily a difference between a mister and a spray bottle. The terms are often used interchangeably in product names and descriptions. Generally speaking, a mister should expel finer water particles than a regular spray bottle, which theoretically mimics the humidity of a tropical climate rather than just shooting out water droplets.
