Hey guys,

Just curious - I live in SA and the air here is quite dry (not to mention very cold here) do you guys use a vaporiser or humidifier for your grow tent?
I had a vaporiser sitting in my cupboard so I've been using that but it's a constant battle to get the water out of the bottom of the tent. Are humidifiers any better?

I lived in Adelaide, a much better climate for growing than where I am now.

 

I never bothered with the humidity in adelaide. It's a bit dry but if you ignore it the girls will do fine, growth might be slowed a little but overally it will work well.

 

I'm not sure what you mean by water in the bottom of the tent and vaporizers.

Hey Cooper,

A vaporiser basically steams the air into the tent, hence the water sitting on the floor. It's pretty cold in Adelaide at the moment so I wanted to give her a warmer environment.... You said you never bothered with the humidity, but what about the cold?

I ran my lights at night, when its coldest, my exhaust was on a thermostat and ignored the dark cycle temps.

 

It fell to shit sometimes at the end of bloom because the fans would turn off, the humidity would build and bud rot would set in. I should have had a dehumidifier running while the girls were sleeping.

Very importantly, I had an aquarium heater in my nutrients keeping them nice and warm. I would give them a couple of feeds during the dark cycle to warm the roots a bit.

Ohhhh I think I've made a huge mistake I've been running the vaporiser 24/7.. do you think it would be better if I only run it when I've got the lights off?

Hey kloud9,
Nah it's a vaporiser - it boils the water to create the steam
