Humidity Question
    #242815 - 06/25/09 10:39 AM (7 years, 5 months ago)

Hello Growery,

Any tips on raising the humidity level without spending much cash (if any)?

Any advice is appreciated.

Thanks everyone!!!

Get a nice big cereal type bowl and just fill it with water, set it on the bottom of your grow area... Should raise it a decent bit... and if that's not enough, take some dish rags and hang them half in the bowl and half out so they are sort of acting like a wick and exposing more moisture to the air via more surface area for the water to be evap'd into the room.  Give it a shot! Do you have a humidity guage?

You gotta remember that the sweet spot for mary jane is 50-60% humidity... That's really not high at all, more average than anything.

Or take that same big bowl, and fill it with $5 worth of Perlite. First run and soak perlite in water, i have foud a strainer works best, then just palce in a bowl and mist occasionally as it dries out. this works very well if you dont have a big grow room.

Thank you for your posts. Yes, I have a humidity guage. Right now I am sitting at about 40-48%...since I don't have perlite on hand I'll try the cereal bowl method and let you know what happens.

Thanks again everyone for their posts.

Cheers

Since you are so close to the sweet spot I am sure the bowl method would be just fine.

Keep in mind fellas that he said for "no money", that's why I recommended the bowl of water, or cups...

He said "without spending much cash" which is why I suggested perlie, since a big bag is about $5, instead of a cool mist, Ultrasonic, Ionizing Humidifier which would run about $60, which still isnt that much money.

You also need to realize that above 50% humidity can affect carbon scrubbers. At least thats what the info with my Can Filter said.

This is a good idea, to add to it, i would keep the perilite cups in the shade, out of the light, to keep anything from growing on top of the perilite.
