Are my drying temps ideal?

Is 55-60 degrees Fahrenheit and 45% humidity ok?

I think the temps are good, but the humidity could use a bump. Am I correct in thinking I want my humidity to be closer to 60RH?

If so, should I put a humidifier in there with a humidistat keeping it at 60?

I currently have an exhaust fan, if I turn that off the humidity goes up to 70% which I know is too high, but running it on the lowest setting gives me a humidity of 40-45%.

Any feedback is appreciated…

I like 60 F at 60% the. Try partially blocking the exhaust to regulate the humidity.

I run a humidifier if needed in my drying room.

I blocked it 95% of the way and it only went up a percent. It is the middle of winter her in NY so it is dry.

I just put a humidifier in there and set it to 60%. I also have an oscillating fan at the bottom of the tent for air movement as well (not pointed at the flower). Do you run an exhaust fan too?

Exhaust fan of sorts. I dry in a small bathroom and the fan in the ceiling is my exhaust. I’ve never had a problem maintaining humidity in the room and the temp is ideal when I keep the door shut.

I use a small fan for air circulation too.

I live north too and face the same challenges.

Speaking of bathrooms. I thought you might get a kick out of this photo. I took over my wife’s upstairs bathroom


I wish it had an enclosed shower. Make for perfect drying. But she wanted a claw foot soaker.
