Dark period humidity at 70RH. I have a Vornado Flippi V8 oscillating fan from underneath the canopy, two 3" computer fans blowing at the tops, and the 6"terra bloom exhaust fan/makeshift carbon filter. My hometown has a 90% RH. Will the circulation prevent budrot from experience?

Hello ! I live in a high RH area and with your values and even if you have a good airflow indoor , you will loose 5 to 10% into bud rot or mold. With a constant 70% you can't get any problem even with very resistant stains. My advice is to watch your plants every days and at the 1st signs of rot or mold cut the bud away (or just the damaged part). I hope it will help you :grin::v::skin-tone-3:

good air circulation will reduce the likelihood of mold forming, but some of the bigger buds, might get mold from the inside anyway, there's nothing you can do except use an ac to remove the humidity, unless you have a bigger exhaust fan that may help just a little. All you can do is pray at this point my friend, I will pray with you :pray:

Hi @Deftonestranger! Crazy RH where you live :open_mouth: Fans will help, but they can't ensure you this won't happen. On the long term, you should invest in a dehumidifier, and not the 'cheap & tiny' kind with chemical capsules. You will need an electric powered dehumidifier with adjustable settings (integrated hygrometer) and a good absorption capacity. These things are quite big and expensive, but it will definitely help you to control your Vapour Pressure Deficit for the whole run, from seedling to drying. Happy growing :facepunch:
