humidity, temperature and inline fans

First grow/ first post so i figured id ask here instead of the indoor grow sub forum. I live in the high desert, outside temperature is high and humidity is low. My 3x3x6 tent in the garage runs at 95 and 60rh with the inline fan off and a humidifier running. If i turn the inline fan on, the temp will drop to 80-85 but the humidity will drop down to 40rh even with the humidifier running constantly. Im running leds, 3 8" circulation fans, temp and RH are measured by Inkbird controllers. Is high temp worse than low humidity? Should I look into a bigger humidifier? Maybe an AC unit?

ideal u want the plant in temps in the mid 70s to 68f( 80f makes the glands mature faster turning it into couch locking weed) as for RH 50% is ideal higher then that makes the leaves come in thin..... lower then that the leaves come in wider

ac unit will work to keep the temps where u need them and ac automatic keep RH around 50%
as for humidifers u want a digital one that u can set for 50% (higher rh u take a chance of mold growing on the plants )
the larger ones will keep u from filling it every other day but a gallon one u will fill once every 2 to 3 day
