QUEST DEHUMIDIFERS ARE SPECIFICALLY DESIGNED FOR USE IN A HORTICULTURAL ENVIRONMENT.
The Quest OverHead Dehumidifier 70 is second to none at Controlling humidity in compact, unconditioned commercial spaces that present unique challenges. Variable temperatures and constrained placement means you need a targeted solution. That’s where the Quest 70 comes in to its own.
This compact, economical, high performing dehumidifier has one of the widest temperature and relative humidity operating ranges available.
Monitoring your humidity within your growing environment is extremely important because as if humidity is too high during budding, fruiting and flowering then Mould and Mildew can take hold, ultimately leading to a loss of yield.
High humidity effects nutrient uptake and distribution as the plant structures rely on a difference in humidity between the pores (stomata) and air, in high humidity situations, the plant may stop transpiration which reduces mobility of nutrients, slowing growth.
Low humidity can force plants to transpire too quickly which may lead to leaf wilt if the plant is unable to replace these liquids faster than they are removed.
Plants are best facilitated with different levels of humidity throughout their lifespan; Overall, cuttings and young seedlings need high humidity (between 70 – 80%) before they root as they’ve got a limited capacity for up-taking water without roots. Plants in the vegetative stage require between 50 – 70% RH, while flowering and fruiting plants demand lower humidity levels (between 40 – 60%).
The Quest OverHead Dehumidifier 70 has a tank adapter so you can drain the water this unit absorbs back into your reservoir for use in your irrigation systems.
