I live in southern Arizona where it gets really hot. I just moved my seedling into the main 4’ x 4’ section yesterday and hours later it started showing signs of, what I’m guessing based on my research, heat stress (fan leaf edges curling up). She’s doing better today after trying to fix the temperature, but boy did I have to fight it.
Right now my environment is at 25% RH and 81.7F. Too dry and too hot. I have a cool-mist humidifier coming on rush delivery to help get that RH up, but how well is it going to cool down my tent?
I keep the AC in my house blasting at 70F (I’m originally from up north and hate the heat down here). The tent is just catty-corner from an open AC vent, I have my exhaust fan on almost high, two clip-on fans working the inside, I have the front flap of the tent half-way open with another fan that’s sitting under the AC vent blowing right at my tent and through all this my temp went from 81.5F to 81.7F
I’m really hoping that humidifier helps at least a little. Anyone else live in hot climates that have heat issues? How do you deal with them?
