How to Add Humidity to a Grow Tent
Humidity is important for hydroponic growing though it's important to know that having too much or too little humidity can cause issues with growing. Adding humidity to your grow tent doesn’t always have to involve humidifiers but instead can be optimized by growing mature and new plants together or by utilizing grow tent fans to circulate humid air throughout the grow tent. Additionally, adding a wet towel or reducing your lighting can increase the amount of humidity though these options can feel finicky and be more challenging to get right. For the most control over humidity, using a humidifier in the grow tent could be your best bet.
