Hey all, I thought I'd ask for your experience with humidity issues. Specifically, Low humidity, @ 10-25% where I currently live. I know there're some desert folks out there with stories to tell. I also know I'm supposed to be around 50%, days I get down to that 15-20% number and evenings it'll skyrocket to 60% when I close the tent for sleep.

I have a little humidifier I can throw into the mix, will get another fan for intake during flower. Anyhoo, just curious how big a deal this could be, happy daze, dwd

Low humidity will cause them to drink more water and depending on temp can cause heat dormancy issues. If the plants aren't showing stress you should be OK....

better to dry than too wet.  easier to water than dehumidify.
