Need more humidity in grow room?
    #3816555 - 02/22/05 01:27 PM (11 years, 9 months ago)

My friend has a small closet that he made into a grow room and he is having problems with the humidity staying high enough. He is using a humidifier and the plastic tent that is covering the closet is all wet but his humidity gage claims it only about 60% in the closet. What is the required humidity range and also how can he make more humidity?

Before you do anything verify that the hygrometer you have is working properly. I have seen more than once that a bad hygrometer has caused this. Try another one, the higher quality the better, cheap ones are notoriously unreliable. Any where from 85 to 95% for casings and 95 to 100% for cakes is about right.

the test i read to do on your humidity gauge is to wrap a damp towel/cloth around the sensor and whatever it reads after an hour or so is it's max poss reading, so try that out on your gauge, it might help w/ further troubleshooting

i have a cigar humidor and the way they tell you to calibrate it is to take a shallow cap(i used a botle cap) and place a teaspoon of salt in it. then you wet the salt like wet sand you don't want a puddle. place in a ziplock bag and wait 6-8 hours to see if it goes up to 75%
