no one can really tell me how far apart or how many mist nozzle I should put in the shadehouse and I really want to do it right the first time the area is 3.5mt x3.5 mt I have shelves 3 high with top 2 shelves being just a lattice most of plants are around the outer of the area with a few plants in the centre I would really much appreciate and suggestions you can give me


Answer:  Hi Jackie,I would space them out 600 mm apart. Put them on twice a day for 30 minutes. This should counteract the harshness and dryness of your area.  Don
