 Help with humidity.

I have a glass enclosure 18x18x24 with screen top. Eco earth moss and rocks. What should I use for more humidity a mister or a fogger?

I used both to maintain and control my humidity. I also have a pond and live plants to aid in my humidity goals.

How do you keep plants alive with no fertilizer?

My plants are in 1 gallon planters mounted to the walls of the enclosure with a Titebond II slurry. The substrate I use in the potters is an Atlanta Botanical Gardens mix, known as ABG soil mix. I also use this as my main substrate along with grape leaves for my leaf litter to hold in moisture and prevent soil from sticking to my babies.
Rarely you should have to fertilize, as the mix is pretty good itself, along with mold and dragon poo. I do use fish emulsion about every 6 months as fertilizer, but this is probably overkill. It is animal safe, just smells horrible.

I like my fogger. I have it attached to a hygrometer for control so it takes care of itself.
