'Microfauna', I'm guessing -- springtails, isopods. Microfauna don't have anything to do with what your plants are experiencing, though.

So if I increase misting and ventilation, maybe I can give the plants more water without causing the humidity to stay too high for too long. Does that sound correct?
Yes, that sounds correct. It may be that you weren't providing enough water to actually get to the plants' roots -- that's what it looks like from the pictures, anyway. Mist as much as needed to keep the plants watered. Ventilate to keep the humidity down.
I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd.
