    Humidity

    Ok so ill start with my grow list
    http://www.terraforums.com/forums/sh...d.php?t=124965

    Now i have a closet set up with grow racks. With lights on and humidifier i have humidity of 70%+ and wen i turn everything off the humidty will drop to a little over 20%. Is this bad, i know lower night temp is good. Should i leave the humidifier on at night, the only thing is its hot steam and im not sure if the temp will fluctuate as much.

    Kill the humidifier and just bag the neps up. Mine are bagged for the move home, and all have made pitcher after pitcher in the meantime. A huge improvement in growth and pitcher development.
    Just a suggestion..
    A ziplock baggie and a mist of distilled/RO water and they'll be in heaven.

    No, just keep them bagged 24/7. Then mist the walls of the grow space to raise the humidity for the larger neps. Or use the humidifier only when the humidity falls during the daytime.

    I've had my raff bagged up before and I agree, it worked well. But can't it harm them sometimes because of no airflow, leading to mold and stuff?

    yeah, it "could".. if they start showing signs of decay or mold you can just unzip one or two of the corners to allow some airflow.
