    HELP! ( Off topic) Will a humidifier work in a large room?

    I hope that expert will help me and give me advice.

    Don't oversize the unit—you'll likely end up with excess moisture problems. It's better to err on the smaller size. When buying a whole-house humidifier, keep in mind that though they are designed to cover a large area—your whole home, how well moisture is discharged to the full area depends on your home's layout.

      Having a humidifier next to the tent, not in the tent, is working for me. A small floor fan brings in the lower humidity air through an open tent flap, it circulates up and out the inline exhaust fan. Growing in a 2.5x2.5’ tent in basement storage room.
      BioCanna nutrient line, Canna BioTerra coco, Viparspectra XS2000 240w LED, 3 gallon fabric pots, 32x32x63” tent in basement.

        Correction, I meant dehumidifier not humidifier!

      Agreed. When it’s really humid I put the dehumidifier beside the tent with the exhaust blowing towards the air intake at the bottom of my tent. I have to combat the added heat with a ac unit but this can keep humidity close to 50% when lights are off. You have to get a proper sized dehumidifier though. My grow room is 100sqft and my dehumidifier is up to 200sqft

        Are you talking about a humidifier or de-humidifier? Do you live where a whole house unit is called for? Here in MI there is a good chance your cat may burst into flames from static electricity in the winter.


          I have mine in the tent all day. But it’s usually only on in the night. When the tent is closed.
          mine is both a humidifier and a dehumidifier l. But it can cover a 25 square meter area. And have a capacity on 10 L water.

          in the winter time it’s really nice I have it. Because it will keep the temperature up in the winter night when the lights are of.
          and here late in flowering I’m dropping the RH to 35 % every night.
          Just because people are over 50 doesn’t mean they know everything.
          You can teach a old dog new tricks - But it will still think the old ways are the “best” lol
