Electronic Leaf Mist Control
The misting controller that works just like a leaf! The weight of the mist settling on the stainless steel "leaf" turns off the solenoid. When the water evaporates, the "leaf" rises turning on the solenoid valve and starting another cycle. Leaf is adjustable for more or less misting. Includes 24 VAC transformer and 20' of 18-gauge two-strand bell wire for easy attachment to a 24V solenoid.

We have had two electronic leafs over 6 years. Since we have heavy iron deposits in our well water, the paddle ends up accumulating iron sludge and doesn't turn on until it is cleaned. The other problem occurs because the humidity as measured by the leaf in the greenhouse is not representative of the dampness of cuttings sitting in perlite on heat mats next to the leaf. We have transitioned back to a programmed controller that turns mist on and off at programmed intervals.
I Bought and tested this to use with i propagation bench i had just built. I just finished my first test. Very happy new clones with good roots. The electronic leaf was easy to get to know after a few minor adjustment goofs.
This is the best mist controller for propagation. It will give you just the amount of water the plants need, no more and no less, because it works based on the moisture on the surface of the leaf. This principle allows it to automatically adjust to the temperature and humidity in your propagation chamber even as those factors change between day and night or with the weather. It does require periodic adjustments and cleaning as mineral or algae build up on the leaf. In my experience, a once a week adjustment has been plenty with a cleaning every couple of months.
The electronic leaf has helped reduce the amount of time I spend caring for the greenhouse. I don't have to worry about my plants having too little or too much water.
