Humidifier is about the only way to get it to the 70%-80% where you want it, but I just get a bucket of water or 2 and put it in my grow room. It can help a bit but it won't get it where your plants will grow best like a Humidifier will.

You can also use a heating pad on highest level and put a plastic glass or bowl on the heating pad with hot ass water and cover...you can get it up to 90 something if you have a decent cover(humidity dome)

Some hand damp to moist towels in there, others just leave pots of water. Best is a humidifier, preferably one that doesn’t light up lol

Thanks guys, I’m going to give some of these options a try. I have a humidifier in there but it’s an old school one and it only raises humidity maybe 5%... I have a heating pad so I will place some hot water on it and turn it on high and see what happens. Thanks again

Here is my thoughts. What is the humidity for. For the plant to absorb through its leaves. High humidity can make a great platform for bacteria and spores. Leaving wet stuff or buckets of water works but you have to replace every cycle or run the risk of nasty stuff forming. Humidifier is great for a small tent but for a 4/4 or bigger I find that you have to run it so long you get moisture build up on walls and stuff. Once again could end in mold or something of the like if you are not careful. So since the plant leaves need to absorb not the air be saturated. I just run my room between 50-55% then I just spray my plants with some water a couple times a day. Not soaked just misted. They absorb that water and all is good. The plant gets some through absorption and no extra humidity in the air maybe causing you some problems later. Just my thoughts as usual there is never only one good answer.

I am on my first grow, and i have done a few things that help.

1- water bowl as close to light projection area to increase water evaporation which = humidity

2 - i keep my fabric pots in run off trays and i will mist inside the trays around the pots not on the pots because im only guessing mold can form if you dampen the pots all the time.

3 - very very lighty MIST top soil daily with water. (evaporation of water in MISTED soil will increase humidity around plants)

4 - with a damp cloth or sponge you can wipe inside of grow tent walls with water (enough to have water streaks on walls but not to much that its dripping)
