Why does the humidity level matter ?
At every stage of growing cannabis, your plant requires constant water intake. The amount of water they need changes based on the humidity level in the room. If the level of humidity is high, the plant will use leaves for absorbing moisture. As a result, the plant will use less water from the roots. In case the humidity level is low, the plant will drink more water from the roots.
The right humidity levels are:
- For cloning 70% to 80%
- For vegetative 40% to 70%
- For flowering not more than 40%
As the humidity changes how much water your plant intakes, it also affects the nutrients your plant takes in (for the best nutrients, read this article). When you are in control of the humidity level, you can have a control over your plants nutrient consumption. This is the reason why you must have control over the environment of the growing room.
Furthermore, if your growing room has poor humidity management then your plant will have various problems. It might include:
- Bud might rot or mold
- White powdery mildew
- Not enough nutrients will turn your plant brown
- The growth of your plant will be slower
