Help with humidifier

Hello guys!
So I just finished my 1st run with 3 WW autos, i redone my entire setup in the grow room to make the area more efficient since it’s 4x2 and growing 3 autos, now come the humidifier concern. I live in western Colorado, DRY. I need humidifier at ALL STAGES, even to reach 40%. I heard many things about humidifier inside the tent is bad for the leaves, what should i do? Any recommendations for good/smart humidifier? And should i try to make the room that the tent on with the rh im looking for instead of humidifier inside the tent?(sounds a bit hard specifically at first stages lol)
Thanks

I don’t know about that. Did who stated this happen to reference why?

The biggest concern you will have is the small tent with 3 plants. You won’t be able to fit a humidifier in a 2x4.

i find 2 that can fit my problem, LEVOIT smart 4L, or Reptile fogger, and then insert the hose in fhe tent and humidifier out. What do you think will work better in my case?

Not “smart” humidifier but super simple is a towel and a bucket of water. Towel wicks up water and gives more surface to evaporate. The humidity in room is probably for muggy climates, you need the humidifier for your climate but others need to dry their air out to prevent WPM and budrot.

Maybe referring to using tap water over distilled :metal::green_heart:

if you have an exhaust fan, the humifier can be set outside the tent by the vent hole and it will get sucked in.

ACInfinity makes humidifiers now, if you use their fans you might want to consider their humidifiers. Works with their controllers. Can be used either inside or outside the tent, with a flexible hose system to put through tent ports.

A while back I asked them to make programming change so that instead of a target humidity level you set a target VPN so that as temperature changes so does the target humidity. They said that it was suggested and they are working on it.

Yea i have an eye on it, feels like always unavailable lol

Those humidifiers are on back order :frowning: i use a humidifier in my veg room. Sometimes ill run one in the flower room. I keep my humidity 60% plus at all times while in veg.

Nice, what version is it? On the website it’s says delivery in a month+, any other place i can get quicker?

Its not an ac infinity. Those are too small for my space. But i do use their exhausts and controllers. I sourced out one on marketplace that has a 5 gallon reservoir enough for a 2500 sq foot house lol. I use it in my 4x8 so i dont have to refill it everyday.

Dang nice, I’ll look at the ac infinity if i get new one and will wait i guess lol

With 3 autos in a 4x2 humidifier is absolutely a no go. I run mine on the outside of the tent in my veg/auto room and it works great
