Do you all find your air conditioning really impacts your plants? I’m increasing misting and keeping on top of watering most of my plants seem to be having issues

I have to use a bedside humidifier whenever my AC is running just for my own sensitivity to the dryness and I water my plants about 2x as often, I think you're on to something

Can you specify what kind of issues? Misting is really not all that effective. You can try a humidity tray

Air conditioning dries out the air, dehumidifiers are basically just air conditioners that don't vent outside.

Dry air means plants need more water. Sudden changes in humidity can also stress plants. A humidifier will help but it's *really* easy to overdo it with a humidifier, so you'll want to keep an eye on the humidity level if you go that route (you can get a perfectly reasonable temp/humidity monitor from Amazon for <$10).
