Temp chart from the data logger which clearly shows the difference between hourly 5 min misting and temperature-dependent misting. You can see that on 13 June the mister came on at hourly intervals, and in the 5 mins it was on, the temp only went down a few degrees, staying in the upper 20s and low to mid 30s for much of the day. On a sunny day this is clearly too hot and certainly not ideal.
Today (14 June) I got a replacement thermostat for the one that broke, and set it so the misters come on at 27C and off at 23C. With similar weather to yesterday, the temp barely fluctuated between 23-25C all day! Very happy with that. Now I just have to get those night temps up a bit, hopefully will get that sorted by the end of the week.
