Mainstream doesn't mean fits all situations! I actually do both. I remember telling plenty people over the years that fog at night would lead to mold and mildew. I have not seen any evidence of this, so even I can learn new things . I don't think I have the patience for a bio-active, but who knows.Good points. Should fogging be mainstream though? I think mist vs fog is a good example of 2 ways of doing something that can meet at the same result. Fogging might be more practical, I plan to do it this winter indoors and cut down on misting. I don't have to do it outside for summer. I don't think there is any evidence that chameleons live any longer or better lives with fogging over misting though? And that is assuming someone misting is doing it correctly. I get that the fog is more natural, but I don't see one method being much superior over the other. JMO, but I believe using bioactive substrate to have more positive benefits than barebottom and it is also natural, but it hasn't caught on as fast*. I'm biased though and we will always defend our own choices to some degree so I'm alright with that. I have no issues with people fogging/misting or using barebottom/substrate.
Hmmm, sounds like a very civil discussion going on here ...
