Hi Macky, what’s the best way to get the temperatures and humidity to the required amounts for each stage? Do I need a mini radiator, humidifier or dehumidifier in the tent?  Wondering what everyone does to get to the desired temps and humidity. Cheers

for warmth, an oil rad heater works well. But for cooling, more extraction or Air  con, and that can be expensive

I run a humidifier and small 250W ceramic heater connected to Inkbird humidity and temperature controllers. You set the controllers to turn on/off based on whatever values you are trying to maintain. The setup works quite well - my outside-the-tent temperatures in my basement are usually about 15C, but inside the tent never drops below my set value of 18.5C (lights off). Humidity is a bit harder to maintain as the outside-the-tent humidity hovers around 25-30% (and down to ~10% during the recent cold snap), and so constantly running an extraction fan drawing that dry air inside, the humidifier is constantly on trying to maintain my 50% set-point. In more humid months tho, it works perfectly. You are able to plug your exhaust fan into the humidity controller's second outlet and only have it come on when a maximum humidity is reached as well, which is quite useful, especially for drying your harvest.

No longer use humidifier or a heater so have no need for my Inkbirds now but they did a good job when I did...also used a convection heater as they are light and can be hung from tent unlike oil fired heavy job 😉
