Air movement helps your plants cope with increased temperatures as they can transpire more water helping them cool down. Proper air movement reduces microclimates as well, helping any measurements you take to be more accurate and representative of the space as a whole.
Box fans take up less space than standard oscillating fans as the unit does not need to physically swing round, instead it relies on front plate that rotates, sending air in all directions forward of the plate. This makes box fans an ideal choice for those in tight spaces or if you’re trying to minimise the amount of floor room your equipment takes up.
Pedestal fans are well suited for blowing the air between your lights and the top of the canopy to prevent hotspots. They’ve got variable height so you can keep them just above the canopy as the crop grows taller.
Wall fans are supplied with a mounting bracket that can be screwed into any surface. They can be a bit tricky to install in tents though, so wall fans are most suited to larger indoor gardens. They take up no floor space so there’s more room for plants.
Clip on fans are perfect for tents or tight spaces. Clip on fans securely connect to anything smaller than 4cm allowing them to be positioned anywhere that needs increased airflow. Clip on fan’s take up no floor space so there’s more room for plants.
In addition to all the features of the smaller 6inch clip on fan, maxifan have designed an 8 inch oscillating fan that oscillates through 110 degrees, providing airflow over a much larger space. A perfect option if you’re in a tent as you get the benefits of oscillation without the footprint normally associated with pedestal fans.
How to use:
Position fans so they’re blowing against a wall or your light fixtures rather than having fans blowing straight at plants. When plants have constant wind it can cause undue stress as the plants have to increase their transpiration levels to match the increased fluid leaving plant’s stomata.
Its much better to use multiple fans on a low setting rather than fewer on high power. Too much wind can cause windburn on leaves, potentially leading to slowed down or stunted growth.
