Thank you. Trying to control all of this is a bit harder than I thought. I got a space heater and a cool mist humidifier for a room to keep them in. I leave the humidifier on full blast at all times. And when the humidity dips outside I have a hard time getting over 55. I ordered a second humidifier that does cool and warm mist. I didn’t think about a warm mist also helping with the temperature. Do you guys have any better luck with cool mist vs warm mist? Especially for trying to aim it. It seems the cool mist wants to go everywhere except toward the plants.
So these 2 plants are in windowsills? So long as your humidifier is near your plants, it should be fine.
Keep in mind that increasing airflow will lower the humidity, but you also don't want no airflow. In a home, you have to actively be trying to have 0 airflow because 0 airflow is one big factor that leads to mold. Mold not only messes with plants, but it does a number on humans as well, so homes aren't built with the idea of creating a stagnant environment.
Most people here use cool mist humidifiers, as warm mist is, well, steam. "Cool" mist doesn't mean "cold" mist, it's just not steam, so it shouldn't really mess with temps around the plants.

Also Google says I’m going to cause mold all over this room. Are there things I can do to prevent that?
A google search can land you with anything. So long as your not humidifying inside a closet, sticking the humidifier in an air vent, swap out air filters when you should be, and you make sure to clean your house, mold shouldn't really be an issue.
