The humidity and temperature of your home grow can effect the growth and final yield of your harvest. Just like people, cannabis feels most comfortable when the humidity and temperature levels aren’t too high or too low.
In all stages of cannabis growth, your plants will have a constant need to intake water, and the amount of water they need fluctuates with the humidity in your room.
What is Humidity? Humidity measures how much water is currently being ‘held’ in the air. There are three ways to measure humidity, “absolute”, “specific”, and “relative” humidity. In our case, we will be referring to relative humidity (RH).
Relative humidity (RH) measures how much water is in the air compared to the maximum amount of water than can be held in the air at that temperature.
The basic tools that you will need to measure and control the temperature and humidity of your grown room are:
- Temperature & Humidity gauge
- 8,000 btu AC unit
- 70 pint per day dehumidifier
