Relative Humidity

In this cold wintery weather, our relative humidity (RH) drops drastically. Knowing your RH is essential for healthy plants during vegetative growth and flowering.

In vegetative growth plants require higher levels (>70%) of humidity to flourish and reach their potential. This is achieved in a number of ways;

1) Make sure plants are grouped close together to create a microclimate.
2) Any oscillating or clip fans that are on need to be off, this applies for air in as well. These remove any humidity you may be achieving.
3) A wet towel or bucket of water may help in raising humidity levels.
4) Domes that cover the plants and raise humidity for each plant.
5) A humidifier.

We cannot stress how important getting the humidity right is in your room or tent, get it sorted and it will be the best thing you do.... For pretty much free!

Lastly, don't forget to take advantage of NPK's wealth of knowledge. If we don't know the answer, we definitely know someone that will!

Take care on those slippery roads and get that Humidity UP in veg.
