Air movement helps your plants cope with increased temperatures, allowing them to transpire more water to cool down. Proper air movement reduces microclimates, improving the accuracy of any measurements taken. This allows you to fine tune the growing environment through a better understanding.
Box fans take up less space than standard oscillating fans. The unit's rely on a rotating front plate to send air in all directions forward of the plate. Box fans are the ideal solution for tight spaces or if you’re looking to minimise the amount of floor room taken.
Pedestal fans are well suited for blowing air between lights and the top of the canopy. Pedestal fans allow you to adjust for height variations. This means you can maintain air flow above the canopy as the crop grows.
Wall fans are supplied with a wall mounting bracket that can be screwed into any surface. Due to the closed nature of grow tents wall fans aren't suited to tents. Wall fans suit larger indoor gardens and leave more room for plants.
Clip-on fans are perfect for grow tents and smaller grow spaces. The Maxifan 6-inch clip-on fans secure to anything smaller than 4 cm diameter. This allows you to position the fan anywhere that needs increased airflow. Clip-on fan’s leave more room for plants.
In addition to all the features of the smaller 6-inch clip on fan, Maxifan designed an 8-inch oscillating fan. This fan rotates 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.
Position fans so the air flow diffuses by blowing against a wall or light fixtures, rather than blowing straight at plants.
Professionals recommend using multiple fans on a low setting rather than fewer on high power.
Too much or consistent direct wind exposure can damage or cause your plants stress.
Too much or direct wind exposure can stress plants as they fight to intensify transpiration levels to match the increased fluid leaving the plant’s stomata. It can also cause windburn on leaves.
Plant damage or stress can lead to slowed or stunted growth with lower yields.
