Hi bro,

maybe you want to try something like clay, salt, basically anything that can suck up and store water.. there are quite many ways.

The most important thing I found for me is to water the plants when the lights go on so the humidity in the dark doesnt get to bud-rot-critical stages.

Otherwise.. Airflow of course.

I hope you can manage it :facepunch:

There are a variety of things you can do to help lower your humidity , firstly you can get a medium sized dehumidifier for a good price from just about any hardware store or even walmart ( lowes , homedepot , canadian tire , places like this as well ) if this isnt in your budget then you can open the windows to the grow area to circulate fresh air in lowering the humidity . You can also booster fans for really cheap that you can add to your ventilation system in order to move the air out faster lowering the humidity . At 45% tho you are in the safe area , I always try and have it as low as I can during flower to prevent mould and such but anything under 50% during late flower should result in a mould free plant . Over all its looking real good in here and I dont see any real signs of dangers . I hope this information helps you understand that there are various options out there for humidity problems and how to fix it and were your safe humidity levels are for flower . - Happy Growing!

I'm considering starting with a small bathroom exhaust fan 187m/h.(18$ amazon) Seems like it could be sufficient to suck out some sweet plant sweat :)

Hi @Masism! We've all experienced high humidity (especially at night, because when the lights are off the air remains wet and plants tend to sweat more at night). It could become a critical issue during late flowering when your buds are becoming fat & compact, there is a risk of mold/bud-rot. I was running through the same issue until I bought an electric dehumidifier. It's an investment (100~300$) but it will probably prevent your crop from rottening and save you months of hard labour. Plus, resin & terpenes tend to develop better in a low relative humidity environment, this is the other reason why we all want to decrease the RH during the late flowering stage. Good equipment is not an option for a safe and productive run! Hope this will help, keep us up-to-date and happy growing :facepunch:

You can add a fan to blow around your plant , it will low RH a bit and create a positive airflow. You can add a dehumidifier or you can add an exhaust :blush::v::skin-tone-3:

50% humidity is not that high ! you're okay, dont panic! if you want to lower the humidity, there are two ways. something called a dehumidifier , or an AC can get the humidity lower otherwise you can try to get a bigger or better exhaust and fan. more exhaust less humid air, simple ! hope this helps ! :rocket:
