Optimise your grow with the best temp and humidity monitor

As a grower, you know the secret to thriving plants isn't just in the soil or the seeds. It's in the environment you create. 

The right temperature and humidity levels can make all the difference between a bountiful harvest and a disappointing yield. But maintaining that perfect balance can feel like a guessing game without the proper tools.

Enter the challenge of keeping your grow room conditions just right. Too much humidity, and you risk mould and diseases. Too little, and your plants could dehydrate. 

When the temperature in your grow space swings too high or too low, it can stress your plants, leading to poor growth or crop loss. That's where a reliable grow room temp and humidity monitor comes into play.

Stay tuned as we introduce you to the Grow Sensor. A game-changer in grow room management designed to help you effortlessly keep those vital environmental factors in check.

Why monitoring is key in grow rooms

Indoor growing requires delicate balance, and the role of a grow room temp and humidity monitor cannot be overstated. 

Temperature, relative humidity and the vapour pressure deficit (VPD) they create together directly influence plant health and yield, silently influencing your grow’s success.


The temperature in your grow space is more than just a number; it's a vital component. It affects your plants' ability to perform photosynthesis and absorb nutrients.

If it is too hot, your plants could suffer from nutrient burn or excessive transpiration, losing vital water faster than they can absorb it.


On the flip side, humidity plays a crucial role in how your plants use water. A highly humid environment can encourage the growth of mildew and pests, while low levels might dry out your plants and hinder their growth. 

Maintaining the ideal grow room humidity and temperature is essential for healthy growth and high yields.

But here's the kicker—without accurate monitoring and time series data, you're flying blind. 

Guesswork can lead to costly mistakes, such as overwatering, overheating, or creating a breeding ground for diseases. 

That's why top-notch grow tent temperature and humidity meters are more than a luxury. 

It's an essential tool in your growing arsenal. Helping you avoid extremes of temperature and humidity. All while ensuring your plants thrive in the optimal grow room conditions.

Yes, we stand behind the quality of the Grow Sensor with a comprehensive warranty and dedicated after-sales support. Our team is ready to assist you with any questions or support.

Where do you measure humidity in a grow room?

In a grow room, humidity should be measured at the plant canopy level, where your plants are actively growing. 

This is because the humidity directly surrounding the plants is most crucial for their health and growth. 

Monitoring humidity at this level provides a more accurate reflection of the conditions your plants are experiencing. Ensuring you can make timely adjustments to maintain the perfect environment for their development.

Where do you put the temperature and humidity sensor in a grow tent?

In a grow tent, it's advisable to position the temperature and humidity sensor near the centre of the tent at plant canopy level. 

This placement ensures that the sensor accurately measures your plants' environmental conditions. Helping you maintain the right temperature and humidity for optimal growth. 

Placing it in the middle of the tent ensures a more representative reading. This avoids potential inaccuracies caused by proximity to heaters, air conditioners, or tent walls.
