Need more humidity in veg!

25 posts in this topic

Alrighty lads.. 

 

Just starting up, got a pal keeping me right.. Just wondering if anybody has a cheap effective way of getting the humidity up in veg? Only getting 35-40% which isn't the best.. The wee ones aren't the happiest. 

 

Cheers

What medium are you growing in? Soil? I ask because usually a medium that holds a lot of air as well as water like to kwool or Coco fair better with low humidity.

If I were you I would look at other reasons why they aren't happy than the humidity.

Don,t worry about it if they are only small, as they grow humidity will increase naturally and you may even end with a battle to keep it down. Imo do nothing and as blackpool says if they are unhappy it,s not humidity.

Fold a towel up and put it in the tray, it'll make it more effective but you'll have to add water more often!

Depends what you call cheap! You can get a digital humidifier off Amazon hold 6ltrs of water so don’t have to fill it that often and with the built in humidistat you just set the % RH you want and it keeps it there.

 

Some of the cheap ones it’s just on or off so you end up with near 100% RH for a few hours then it runs out of water until you fill it again!

 

However as others have said with 35-40% RH if the plants don’t look happy then there is probably something else going wrong! Get a pic up if you can.
