This RAM Ultrasonic Humidifier has been designed especially to keep moisture levels at their peak for the requirement of your plants. It has a 5 litre tank and can pump out up to 400ml per hour. The adjustable dial on the front allows you to control the level of humidity exactly to where you need it. Having the correct humidity can hugely improve the quality of your plant, particularly in the early stages of plant growth. Its really simple to use, simply fill up the reservior, set the dial and you are ready to go.
Any indoor gardener can tell you that temperatures affect the indoor growroom environment, yet humidity often gets overlooked. Inattentive growers may not realize until after the fact that humidity also plays a role in the outcome of their produce. Whether you are starting seedlings, rooting cuttings or drying herbs or vegetables, the ambient outdoor humidity can drastically change conditions indoors. Therefore, in addition to temperature, humidity must also be addressed during all growth stages. Maintaining proper humidity is especially important in the early stages of plant growth. Plants are usually able to withstand a broader humidity range after they have formed a healthy root system and hardened into the environment.
To answer the question, “Do I need a humidifier?” growers first need to monitor humidity readings in the growroom by using a hygrometer, a.k.a. a humidistat. The necessary humidity range for most indoor crops lies between 3-55%, with an ideal target range of 40-45%. Humidity rising above 60% can lead to molds, mildews, and other unwanted biological growth. Furthermore, high humidity prevents plants from properly taking in CO2, preventing efficient photosynthesis. In this case, a dehumidifier can be used to lower the humidity to an appropriate level.
While germinating seeds or rooting cuttings, it is extremely important to keep humidity levels much higher than normal (80-90%) to promote initial root growth. If humidity is too low, the vapor pressure deficit will encourage transpiration to occur too rapidly to allow energy for root development. A humidifier or ultrasonic fogger may be added to ensure relative humidity remains at an appropriate level. Another useful tool to keep humidity levels high enough for seedlings or cuttings is a humidity dome, which can be placed over the young plants to create a micro-climate where humidity levels remain higher than ambient levels. Another thing to consider while germinating seeds or rooting clones is that although the relative humidity needs to be kept much higher than ambient levels, the moisture level at the roots should be treated normally by giving them plenty of oxygen in between waterings.

The Ram Bug Barrier Insect Screen is a cover that fits directly onto your air intake system. The shield is made up of a layer of fine mesh – the holes are small enough to ensure bugs are not being sucked into your grow-space without having a negative effect on air flow rates. The Bug Barrier also comes with Velcro fasteners sewn into the edges. Each segment of Velcro has a separate matching piece that comes with a peel-off sticky side. These pieces of velcro can be stuck around the edges of your ducting or spigot and used to secure the shield in place.
