  1. My current indoor grow is in a basement, and being that I am from PA, and in an older house the basement gets very humid, especially w/ the heat and rain we've been having. My humidity was during the day (lights on) at like 85% or so and at night it was like 95% I know this is terrible and optimumconditions for budrot and mold, So I got some damp rid for the humidity, i got both the hanging bags and the buckets. I put them in the room about two days ago. my humidity has droped to 73% at day and 83% at night, and an unexpected result was the hanging bags have a like smell pellet in it that got rid of my Dank smell and replaced it with a like flower / Laundry detergent smell which is sweet, The damp-rid is not expensive and uses no electric so far it has been good, the only thing is it takes a few days to pull all the moisture out of the air, Anyone else ever use damp-rid or dessicant, This is the first time I've used it for anything except drying my Magic mushies, and so far its been very good, But I think Im going to get a small dehumidifier and maybe use a lil damp rid (the hanging bags kill the smell) for some smell and extra dehunid work.... Anyone else have long term grow experience w/ this stuff?? Peace all
