Even a small growing room needs a fan: Plants are susceptible to temperature variations. Even a few degrees worth of change can drastically affect the quality and quantity of your harvest, and lights can keep it really hot. Constantly circulating the air in your grow room will help control heat levels.
Air circulation helps check humidity: anyone who has walked through a tropical jungle can tell you that plants are excellent humidifiers. Excess humidity not only causes mold, mildew and other funguses, it also attracts pests. By lowering the humidity for your plants you dry off the leaves, forcing them to uptake more liquid from their roots—liquid that includes your fertilizers and minerals!
Finally, the breeze that’s pleasant for humans is actually a resistance training workout for plants: swaying in the wind gives them strong stems, the better to support a heavy load of flowers or fruit!
This wall-mounted Hurricane® 16 in Oscillating Fan has 3-speeds controlled by dial or pull cord. Ideal for grow rooms or greenhouses with limited floor space, it has 90° oscillation and a multi position tilt function. The grill is made from clean, durable powder-coated steel and the blade is chemical resistant polypropylene.
Growing areas require more than one fan: make sure you’ve got an exhaust fan like the Hurricane
and a filter like the Phresh
to keep the air fresh in your room.
