Question: 

I have a beautiful rex begonia. Would it be helpful to mist the plant during the winter months?

Answer: 

While rex begonias and many other houseplants prefer high relative humidities, misting is ineffective unless you’re prepared to mist the plants several times a day.  Also, rex begonias are not fond of water on their foliage. 

The relative humidity around houseplants can be increased by using a room humidifier, grouping plants together, or placing them on trays (saucers) filled with pebbles and water.  When using humidity trays, make sure the pots remain above the water line.
