    Hi everyone,

    I'm on day 16 and just moved the plants from solo cups to 1 gallon smart pots. Everything is going well, but keeping my plants in the garage my humidity is constantly 65-77%. I tried one of those small portable dehumidifiers, but it did nothing. Will this high humidity be an issue? Should I get a portable AC unit that also dehumidifies?

    It's not an issue right now but it will he when it comes time to flower. Are you having trouble with heat? What kind of lights and fan setup do you have? Also is your garage that humid or your tent?

    Heat isn't too bad just yet. 77-82 thus far. I'm using a 450w LED on a 4x2 tent. During flower in going to move to a 4x4 on a 600w tent. I also have a 6" exhaust fan that's pretty powerful with an oscillater.

    I assume you live in a hot humid climate?

    yes high humidity will most definitely become a problem, one that could risk scrapping plants.
    Get a bigger dehumidifier for humidity control
    get an air conditioner, heater for temperature control
