I live 50m from the ocean with waves crashing on the beach, there is quite some humidity in the night, and i am worried about salt when the flowering starts. Should i be worried about it, what can i do?

The humidity is out of your control and their is nothing you can do outdoor to control the environmental factors unless you have a greenhouse with a ventilation system. With frequent watering and a good runoff you shouldn't have any issues with salts. I would bring the plants inside whenever you have rain that is expected. Only thing I would recommend is to defoliate to make sure you do not get bud rot and try growing strains that are mold resistant. I wish I had a problem like yours ;)

@CanaryGrow Hi mate to be honest I would more worried about residual early morning moisture (dew) settling on the buds than the salt. Consectuative days of humidity and moisture are a nightmare when trying to grow dense
sticky buds as botrytis just loves those conditions.
Is there any way you could Have a fan blowing extra air around them during the nights? Even a battery powered
Fan would be better than nothing Also it's a good habit to physically shake the plants each morning to remove any excess moisture I hope this helps Mate and Best of luck with your coming Harvest.

Hey there, salt will salt the earth making growing difficult, but the closeness of the ocean is totally fine, it's when you get offshore/onshore storms and especially salt storms that's when you should be worried. So only when you start getting bad weather. I see you're growing these in pots, so when the bad weather comes just bring the pots inside for however long you need to be worried. Just maintain the light schedule with any household light and pray that it's over soon. Either that or any kind of green house that's covered. Hope this helps ! :rocket:
