    Is Exhaust / Intake ventilation necessarily for a drying tent

    I'm working on setting up a tent to dry my cannabis in. Is exhaust and intake ventilation important for a drying environment or is a circulation fan sufficient?

    If it's not very humid where you live, a small circulating fan should be fine. If it is very humid, you may want more ventilation. Just my 2cents.

      Drying also requires certain parameters to be met.. humidity should be between 50-55% humidity and around 70f degrees as well as enough ventilation to allow at least some air flow..

        Would you say: if I can get my humidity and temperature ideal I can just open a couple vents in lieu of a full on intake / exhaust ventilation system?

        I just keep my room temp right and use a cheap desk fan for circulation.. I do have an air filter system but if you don’t mind the smell then just the fan will work.. the main reason to do this is to prevent mold..

      I use a room with an AC and dehumidifier.
