Thanks so much for your tip. I also grow mine in flats in a soilless mix. I germinate them in my house than transfer to my greenhouse.  I live in zone 6. Might this be a problem?Isn’t it fairly warm in Arkansas? Not good with geography!LOL!

Thank you for your reply. Would it help if I were to mix it with topsoil?

Okay I think I’m beginning understand but how do you know what is a normal dew point. In other words how did you know 53 dew point is okay

Yes I’m concerned about the plants,I’m getting a lot of damping off. For example this morning the greenhouse temp read temp 64 humidity 69.When I went in the greenhouse the exhaust fan was going. The dehumifier was full. Shouldn’t  the humidity level have been lower than this. It seems like it will be fairly expensive in the winter to heat. How did you figure out the dew point? It seems I need to focus on that,however what is considered okay for the plants. Is there an article you can recommend I read to familiarize myself with this?Thank you so much for your help!

Thanks so much for your response.I have a thermometer in there that tells me the temp.and humidity level. I’m assuming I’m reading the RH,but not sure.  I do heat the greenhouse,in the winter as I do grow microgreens in there. In the wi tee though if I heat the greenhouse to 75 the humidity does not go,down much,this is where I get frustrated and confused. Is there something I’m doing wrong. I have now put a dehumidifier in there hoping that will help my problem. It’s also difficult to keep the humidity down when it’s raining outside.

Hello,

It’s been a while since I posted but glad to be back. I am having trouble understanding humidity in a greenhouse. I have a small 12x 16’ greenhouse. I get how to reduce it but what about in Winter. I’ve read articles that say for example if temperature is 70 ideal RH is 91%. This makes no sense to me. Can anyone tell me what is a good humidity level in a greenhouse in the winter. Our temps. can get in the single digits.
Thank you.

I recently had more shelves put in. MY greenhouse. It is 2 tiered. Does anyone have any suggestions on how I might add an automatic misting system whereby all the trays would get water. They are seedlings I'm working with. Thank you
