This question isnt for this plant but i already asked a question on the other diary. I think i overwatered my autoflower and i was wondering what the best way to speed up the drying of the soil to maybe counteract that?

Let go and direct the fan to the pots. pots will dry quickly

Hey there I love the auto name so clever. But humidity and overwatering problems- there are many things you can do. Of course putting some more fans in, directed at the soil. Avoid watering too much of either plant as that ups RH, a ac unit cools and reduces humidity, increase ventilation(open ports, exhaust system etc), add a small dehumidifier, defoliate any excess foliage as that increases moisture and on the daily go in and wipe down surfaces to remove any built up moisture on walls pots floor etc. But the most useful for drying quick is a good drainage system holes etc and having the fans pointed at the soil as well as surrounding walls to increase airflow.
Best of luck and happy growing.

Hi there! Well you could try to increase your temperature but since you don't have any exhaust control this is gonna be tricky, and I noticed you already had some heat-stress in the past so it's probably not a good idea. You can try to add a fan nearby the plant's pot blowing straight to your container. Your smartpots are made to get the maximum air so this could work. I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and good luck!

Raise the temperature of the tent over 30°C (86°F), that will help both evaporate the excess water in the soil and the added heat will make the plant consume more water.
And water again when you notice a slight leaf wilting.
