Buy a decent humidifier. Preferably a smart one. A smart one lets you set it and it turns off and on automatically. So that you don’t have it too humid and not humid enough. Built in monitor and controller

I bought a Levoit 1.6 gallon (I think) humidifier a few months ago to replace my tiny one. It was about $75 on Amazon. It is spaced for 1200 square feet but I don't think it is hitting my whole downstairs. It seems great so far. I use sink water and do see mineral buildup from my super hard water (19) but there is no way I am bringing home 2 gallons a day of distilled to fill it. weekly, I soak with discolored mineral areas vinegar with 15 minutes, and will spray certain bits down with 10% bleach water that seem slimy. It is a pain but something that needs to be done. (No-I don't mix vinegar and bleach-separate tasks)
The humidity sensor is easy to read and I keep it going at max humidity which gets my dry house to 50% humidity. I fill it once daily at max level. If I keep it at auto, i only have to fill it every 2 days. There are 2 models, one of which you can put aromatherapy oils in so if you want something like that then make sure you get the one that does that (I don't do that because it is overwhelming for dog noses to have all that scent in the air.).
The plants are doing great. I keep it near my one cluster of humidity loving plants and the brown crispy bits are stopped appearing on my calatheas, ti plants, and ferns. Actually the entirety of my plants downstairs are all looking better.
levoit humidifier this is the one I bought
Levoit this is all you need. Just set your desired rH, set it to auto and refill every few days

I ordered this back in September and I’m happy with it so far. I like the top fill option and I love the smart WiFi feature. This is handy as it’s sitting in my plant room and I don’t always know if it’s out of water but I get a notification on my phone. And if I’m away from home, I can still monitor the humidity levels and change the settings if needed.
Yeah basically, it's set it and forget it. The app will notify you if you using hard water and it needs a cleaning as well as when you need to refill it. Depending on your fan settings and your required humidity you'll have to play around with what will get you to your comfort zone. Personally I only have my fan on 5/10 because I'm not flowering right now and I only have to set the device to be 5% over my humidity zone. It will also very greatly depending on where your exhaust is vs where the humidifier is.
I've set mine next to my floor fan so it circulates evenly before it reaches the top of my tent and exhausted.

Has it helped? I use this humidifier in my tent, paired with a temp/RH sensor. It seems to be a good combo for regulating RH in the tent during grow and dry.

Get yourself a nice humidifer.
This one works with Alexa, and lasts for a couple of days.
I have This humidifier for my birds , I got it to help my bird who barbers her feathers, cause some more moisture can help them I’ve read. And it works super well for her ! And all my other birds seem to do well with the extra humidity also.
I like these and own 3 of them. Last for about 5-7 days before refill (results may vary depending on your locations rH). Ability to fully control through WiFi (VeSync app), on/off and set traps to turn on and off when needed or as the space exceeds or is under the desired thresholds. Also the ability to turn off the lcd screen is nice.
Looking at the price, these go on sale for prime customers bar times. I paid at least 20$ less for my units.
I have a lil levoit one that's no longer available, but if I upgrade, I've been looking at this one.
Don't care about the Alexa app stuff. But it's top fill, built-in hydrometer, dark setting and the other levoit one I have is reliable.
It has a humidistat that connects to an app on your phone in which you can control the humidity level from afar

I've been using this humidifier for about 4 months with no issues other than with a power outage it will not resume humidity control, but you can easily control it from your phone. It is top fill and I have an additional reservoir attached so it will go for several weeks with needing a refill. Watch out for the night light "feature" I found it on the other day during lights out....

You might be able to use that one, but you'll want some way to control the RH (if it doesn't have one built in). The inkbird humidity controller is good for that. I have this and it worked well for me

For dehumidifier, this is probably overkill for most tents, but I was having trouble during the final flower stages keeping my humidity down so I put this one in my tent. Been working out perfectly so far:

This is the one I ended up getting: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08HS45N13
It's working pretty well. The humidistat on the humidifier and the AC 69 Controller do show about a 10% RH difference. It easily keeps up with the RH of the tent. Only downside is you do have to fill it with distilled water.
Depending on room size you may not need one so big, this one works great for me https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08HS45N13/ref=ppx\_yo\_dt\_b\_search\_asin\_title?ie=UTF8&th=1

Those are the 3 I tried before. The vicks one just broke completely, the dial just kept spinning.
Both the toppin and levoit were similar. They both have areas I just couldn't clean/scrub. The toppin started yellowing and having mold though, and was harder to reach even in the water reservoir.
The levoit was the easiest because the whole top comes off to clean every part of the tank, but the base has a flap I could never get under. Then the mold just started growing in a the tiny places of the base I couldn't reach, even with the tiny brush they give you with terrible bristles. Also, we got white dust even with distilled water. I've had the canopy for about 4 months and no white dust, no mold, no issues.
Hope this helps!!
It has automatic settings and the whole top opens, it can also sync to your phone.
This is the best ive ever had! 🤗

Air purifiers are bullshit. However, I have this humidifier and you can turn the display off:
Levoit. Numbers are true, night mode.
The one I have is discontinued, but this one is the one I've been eyeing.
It's top fill, one reason I want it lol.

I put one of these in my drying room. Total game changer everything dries perfectly now.
What size humidifier? A small one. You can get a basic personal humidifier for $40ish.
I use Amazon a lot, so I have this one.
They don't sell the one I have, but this one has what I'd be looking for. Built in hydrometer, top fill, 6l, display turns off. Wifi?lol
If you have a separate controller, you can get one that doesn't have the built in controller, like this. They are usually a few bucks cheaper, but run continuously.
