Damn, you shouldn't be getting condensation running down the tent.... how big is your grow room again buddy? 

Your intake and extraction all pullig air ok? Venting away from the grow area?

It's a 240x120x200 tent, I'm coming to end of my grow so it's jam packed in there now and this weather has turned my house into a greenhouse 🙁 

Everything else is fine, it's just the humidity. Trying to stagger when I have 8 plants so I'm trying to water 4 one day and other 4 other day it's made little difference but I'm desperate for a dehumidifier now

Shit thats heavy into flower and you gotta sort it asap, you need a 16l one at least, but they aint cheap..... but 8 plants, near the end of harvest worth every penny to avoid rot and mould:

No worries,  I have the opposite problem... low humidity, will the plant as it grows add humidity to room? Mine is currently 27% @ 25c.

Mine has only became a problem since they have grown and the tent is jam packed, I need to defoliate alot of them though so hopefully that will help and my dehumidifier is on its way ?

That will be fine bob, it go higher as the plants grow too mate, much better at that level, but try and get it 55% if you can, but dont stress if you cant 45 will be fine

Yes mate, as hey get bigger there is more leaf, so more moisture can be evaporate into the air.... can you slow extraction down a bit? Or get a humidifier? 

27 is really low, do you have your hygrometer close to the plants, inside the grow area? or outside?

What I would suggest then mate, is put a plastic cup or some kind of plastic dome over the top of the plants where the seed is, or when it shoots. This will look in the humidity and keep it higher for the seedling. They need high humidity is the early days. This will help them out. Once you start watering the plants, they humidity should rise. You want at least 45% really. 65-70 is ideal for seedlings

What actually is the ideal humidity? Mines sitting at 55% at the min? But the lights haven't long been on so it will go up now to about 70%.

Seems like I'm ok for the time being but once my dehumidifier arrives i should be able to control it a bit better so it's not fluctuating as much ?

lol thanks man, one of the most important aspects I found, was user bility, shit needs to be easy to find, I a well labelled section, in numerous places on the site 😉

We have tags too, over 400 of them, I'm slowly making my way through each one so they all have definitions, so you can click on 12/12 for example, and it will take you to a section explaining what 12.12 is, and article where its used. 

Im going to make some epic plant problem tick boxes too, but its going to take time of course, tick some boxes of whats wrong with your plant, the symptoms it shows, and you will get the guide that matches the problem, easy to fix any issue then 🙂 But its all work, in a mountain of more work, ive got 6 months to get it all done lol
