I needed one that could also run the ac so the 1800watts was the main reason for this model. You can change the humidity and temperature sensor so you could change to what you need honestly really like it.
Yes and no at first the fridge would not stay above 34 rh after some research it's this model fridge and was able to tape up the sensor and now it is between 55 and 60 constantly so good...... But also think this might be because of the rain we are getting so just keeping an eye on it.
If possible I would bend the taller plants tops down to the same level as the other plant so you can have the light the same distance for both plants. I use this cause it's cheap and you can get it at local places like Lowes. With this you could tie the high branches down at low points spreading the plant out and then use it also to bring the tops back up and in if that makes sense.

I've been running this combo for a year. Love it:
Usually lasts 3-4 days in AZ (inside, 3X4X6 tent). Longer if I'm doing DWC...
How high is the light? With cheaper lights I find that moving it closer helps a lot. I don't know if that one is dimmable, but the current one I'm using(https://www.amazon.com/Sunlike-Growing-Spectrum-Dimmable-Coverage/dp/B0924BMD6D) I have had it up to 20" above(it's 12" above now) and while the plants weren't reaching they weren't growing either.
This one. Yeah they name it different here.

A humidistat sensor placed where the weed is drying will be a more actuate controller. This model works well with analog humidifiers that turn back on automatically when the power is on.
u/TheRealSatori428 has some great advice too.
What ever technique you use, a wood moister meter is also helpful to dial in the exact amount of moisture in the drying plant. I dry at 60F/60RH until I get to 11%, then cure in Grove bags or glass jars @65-70F, or so.

Nothing special at all. it is in a closed closet sitting in back to roots soil (not the best but what they had at walmart. I use to have it under the red/blue purple strip lights when it was small and it was doing ok. Once I got a new light I noticed the curling but it is only happening to top and the middle new growth. The light I have is below and sits about 12 inches above the top of the plant.
I’ve got an ac unit so I should be able to achieve 60/60 in my tent w/ a humidifier on auto. (Im nearing my first harvest so I’m no pro but Im down the rabbit hole with research) but I’m my research I’ve Came up with a curing solution which could work for your drying needs. A wine cooler (which on average cool from about 50-60 & keep an RH of 40% on average coupled with an electric cigar humidifier. It’s a 150-200 solution if buying the wine cooler used which can double as great storage.

That's for the trichomes. Otherwise Samsung S10+
One of those desktop evap coolers might drop it 10 or so AND help keep humidity up.

Highly recommended. They are on sale now on Amazon (canada site). Btw this isn't an affiliate link or anything just thought i would help save you some money.
But uv light is actually not visible. The pop is due to the spectrums that are visible in contrast to the higher visible wavelengths that are being blocked. This is the uv bulbs I'm referring to that although are not as cheap as the incandescent are made for emitting uv as well as more usable light and are much cheaper than lights like solacure. If outputting 75watts into the grow space x3 then using an incandescent bulb is emitting a lot of infrared heat and is pretty much the most spectrally inefficient way we currently have to emit uv.
If you have a few basic tools, you should self install.
I got this one two weeks ago:

This is the controller I've been using. If you get one of these, make sure your humidifier is the kind that starts up automatically when the power is turned back on.

Oh my apologies! The blueberry autos I've seen typically come from ILGM. But it's totally possible it's from elsewhere.
I use this pen. So far so good with it.
Paired with this controller:
is what I use, and I'm really happy with it.
I spotted a 9 can fridge for about $30
I've sweat copper and made worm coils in the past,,, hmmm.
And speaking of ideas, I've often thought by the looks of it there's got to be better shapes that would give younger root growth more wiggle room.

I’ve had mine outside for a year now and it just started ripping I have it staked down as well. I think it may be normal wear and tear I’m looking to get one of these have you seen these yet? It’s a little pricey but looks like a good investment since I’ll always be growing.

Looks like 1-2 weeks depending on preference. If you can swing it, I highly recommend these usb microscopes. they connect by wifi to your phone
A wire rack or something like this will elevate it and stop the roots from coming through.
I use 2 of these Crane Drops hooked up to a humisdat by ink bird. Works well with humisdat because it does not have a built in humistat or module.

Ya bro I just bought a cheap to filter on Amazon and fitted it up to a sink with an adapter. No more trips for heavy water jugs! 3-Stage Portable...
It'd be cheaper in the long run to just grab an RO system. I have mine hooked up in the laundry room, I think it was under 220. Takes our water from like 1200 down to fifty.

Also, need a little facet adapter if you don't want to hook it up under the sink.
I just fill up five gallon jugs, it takes about 37 minutes.
I go through about fifteen twenty gallons a week, too many trips to the store filling up the jugs for me.
I use garden twist ties to just pull them down and tie to the side of the pot or another branch
Thank you very much! Looking forward to having this back in my lineup.

Depends what you mean. A light feeding can be done with a compost tea but if you're using ro, distilled, or purified water then it will not have the calmag you need. You'll need to supplement a calmag source into it as well. I use CaMg+ to supplement the dry nutrients I've added. You might be able to find a more organic one as this one is made by general organics but doesn't actually list that it's omri so I'll probably be looking for alternatives when I run out.
Check these out these.
Just got them for my grow. That way I don't need to worry as much getting light to the bottom bud sites.
RO water should have a very low ppm (15-60ppm in my experience), so little to NO minerals. I do my own RO because my tap is 1200ppm and I got tired of hauling water.
If you are paying for RO water and it's leaving mineral deposits, you need to find a new source of RO water. Here's what I'm using now. https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B016N6DBZK/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apa_glc_fabc_XTSANAYW8KRKXJNFHS54

I'm not really sure how much water these little things are capable of going through in that sense. It should definitely help raise your tent humidity if you're not using anything currently.
I think a better option is something like this for small tent humidification but that's just what I use.
I saw this spray that you put on your plants to make one of the branches male and it makes seeds idk if that helps

With these I can control when my humidifier kicks on. I was previously controlling the heater in the winter but I split mini is running an auto mode now so it handles both heating and cooling as needed. I also have an AC Infinity that set up to exhaust my garden when humidity is too high or temperatures too high. I have a flapped intake (1-way) to a climate controlled room so that when the exhaust fan kicks on, air is drawn into the garden from that climate control room. The garden is an insulated structure built inside my garage which was originally intended for a 42U server-rack that generated plenty of heat and noise.
For outlets I almost exclusively use Z-Wave modules and those are used to manage lights, humidifier, and heater.

If you've been using ro then it's more likely the problem is just no calmag for so long. But yeah they may have depeted the nutes. I use this one. If they're 3 weeks or less into flowering you can try defoliating once you get the deficiency sorted and get new green growth. My get all crappy if I don't feed then nutes plus calmag before 5 weeks for sure but I'm using different soil.
As far as rh is concerned, I've been leaving one of the vents open at the top of our 4x4 tent, as well as leaving off one of the "peek windows" and turning the rest of the space into a blacked-out darkroom during night period. The humidifier is daisy chained through the lights (2x 600W Viparspectra LEDs, fairly low-temp), and cuts off on the same timer. As a result, we average 75degrees F and 68% rh, but it isn't consistent.
As SOON as that stimulus gets here, We'll be adding a humidistat to our tent and hopefully an inline vent fan to improve airflow:
