Ive had bad luck misting/watering any terrestrial plant with EI water. The water evaporates and leaves the salts behind. Eventually the salts build up too much and kill your plant. Excel water will also poison them. I use a deli tub with a hole in the lid. Add some substrate and enough water to reach the top of the sub. Its a slow grower so it will take a few months to put out good emergent fronds. I have some that are 9 months old that are really awesome looking. I think ive only added water once, maybe twice. Use good clean water and they should do just fine.
