good morning all.
I have recently changed from a 60x60x140cm tent to a 60x90x120xm tent. I have two autos in there (also had two in the old tent) and moved over to this new tent because it has a bigger surface area to try a scrog. I have also set everything up with WiFi plugs and a camera so that I don't have to be in and out of the tent all the time, it works really well.
thing is though. I have noticed that the humidity is now always up at around 70 to 75 percent. my grow tent is in a workshop so basically a big shed so it can get hot in there but I didn't have humidity problems with the smaller tent and two plants. it was always around 50 to 60 percent humidity.
I have a small dehumidifier in there that does work but obviously the heat given off when it is working just adds to the problem.
I can't have air pumped in from outside so I have two extraction pans taking air out of the tent and a fan to keep the air moving. I have always grown like this and have always produced good weed in this way.........I just can't work out why I'm all of a sudden having to fight humidity.
I know that the way I'm using the tent isn't ideal and you should have charcoal filters and so on but I'm on a budget, my options mean that this is my only option and like I say, it's always worked up to now lol
is there another way of keeping the humidity lower constantly??
you should have charcoal filters
Gotta cover the smell mate or you're going to have issues, you don't want your neighbours or passers by smelling your grow.
To solve the humidity issue, you need to bring fresh air in, and extract old air away from the grow room. If its getting recycled in anyway, humidity is just going to build up over time. So solving that issue would be the first thing you need to do.

@macky morning mate.
I can't get fresh air in there unfortunately. I can have it draw air in from the shed but I assumed that this would be pointless as it's just drawing in the warm air from the workshop. I had it set up so that air was blowing in at the bottom (air from inside the workshop) and back out at the top while the fan circulated the air inside. I only changed it because I figured it's just blowing warm air in there but I guess at least it's new air....??
I have no facilities to change where my tent is unfortunately 😔
the s.ell isn't an issue as there is always a smell of paint from my neighbour and both sides of me smoke weed (they do not know I grow!!)
@goldseal94 it's usually between 55 and 70 percent humidity and 25 to 30c in soil. I have never had this problem with my old tent unless it was really hot outside.
i have changed the set up to....
fan blowing air in at the bottom of the tent, fan extracting from the top at the side. an air tent at the top that's always open and both mesh vents on the sides of the tent always open. a fan circulating the air in the tent, a dehumidifier that is on for 4 hours and off for one to allow a time to cool off and of course my light but that's an led and isn't giving off a huge Mount of heat.
right now the temp is 26c and humidity is 71% in a soil mix.
How many and how big are your pots?
is there a difference depending on mositure of your pots, does it go down as they dry out.
Is the sock clean on your extraction?
are you fans working together to circulate the air?
