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:

Check This List

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

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?

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 ?

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
