Misting Herbs - Knowledgebase Question

I wasn't sure which of the categories herbs is under. I have some basil, mint, choclate mint, and thyme. My question is: Should I water the leaves or perhaps mist them with a spray bottle or just the soil?

I would keep water off the leaves of your herbs and instead water only the soil. Herbs can develop diseases if their leaves remain wet for extended periods of time so keep the water off the leaves as much as possible. Enjoy your herbs!
