One other possibility is to just leave the whole setup going at night so 
that CO2 levels remain constant. If it is CO2 causing the mist, the mist 
will continue on during the night as CO2 levels stay constant. If the 
misting stops during the night and the early morning, then we can be 
pretty sure it's O2.
