If humidity is maintained by misting, should a vivarium still have a water feature (pond, waterfall, drip wall...)?
What should one keep in mind when building a water feature?
WhAt should one avoid with water features?

A water feature is not necessary and most of the time takes up valuable space in a viv. Misting should be sufficient to maintain humidity.

You don't need a waterfall but I prefer them and still build them. Keep in mind running water creates erosion and the water level compared to ground level. You need to find the right balance of the 2. If you don't over time everything in the tank with just get soggy and runny.
I would avoid fast running water.
Also all of my waterfalls have pumped water from a reservoir below the display tank that is out of sight.With this I never have to worry about a clogged pump and I have easy access to everything.
