In flower... the lower the better... it speeds up resin production. I run my Rh right around 20.

In my room the hunidy ranges between like 15-35%. ai have never had a problem with pests, bud mold or anything like that.

As far as low humidity producing more trichs I can't say for sure but I do know that my white widows look like ski slopes.

Oh, it does... the resin is used by the plant to protect the leaves from drying out. Lower RH = more resin to keep ''wet''

I guess that explains it. My brother usually takes clones off my white widow and tries to do everything by the book. On the other hand I like to do what works for me.

His grow area is a constant 75ish degrees. Mine goes from 80ish at night to 70ish during the day.

His humidity 65-70% which he manages by an adjustable vaporzor. Me, I'm around 25% with no humidity management.

His room 2x2x4 with 16 2' flourecent lights. Mine is 8x3x8 with 1 1000watt hps.

His trich production is way low while mine is through the roof.Almost looks like you can ski down them.

Am I saying what I am doing is right, by no means it just works for me.
So if what you are doing and it's working don't change it.

Attached are some pics of my grow area
