Yes it is okay to get some water on the leaves. It is not advisable to leave water standing on the leaves in the hottest times of day, as the droplets act like magnifying glasses and can cause foliage burn. Constantly having water on the foliage over night can help get fungus problems started, so limit the times they are wet so as to allow things to air dry well. Watch for signs of over-watering too such as foliage wilting.
