That's rhe exact one I have in a 12x15' room in the basement. Takes about 36 hrs
Before I have to empty it. Works great. I'm in SW. VA. So it stays pretty humid outside. They say to use water for plants. Don't leave container of water in same room though.

Cover lights with tape, just in case.

Bigger for sure I use a 70 pint unit in a 12x 8 and a 7000 btu ac to keep it at 60. % humidity, or lower and 72 degrees Fahrenheit

Heat is not an issue if unit is in room, not in tent. I tried both places, in and out of tent. Like the pros say, it's a continuous battle of adjustments if dehumidifier is in tent. Mine stays in room where tent is and works great.

I wish I had humidity in the tent impacted by the room. I'm in a closet where the humidity is 47% but the tent runs 60+ if left on its own. The plants just generate too much humidity. The small units dont get the job done and the midsized ones generate too much heat. Maybe I just need to reduce my plant density next grow. I'm struggling through flowering with a small unit + several Damp-Rid bags.

Yeah, that's a tough environment to manipulate. I have to start out with a humidifier when plants are young/small. Then switch to dehumidifier when they start pumping out the rh when bigger.

I don't know if 1 plant ( or 2 ) would still raise rh significantly. I bet it would but maybe someone with that experience will chime in.

I tried a mid-sized unit a couple of weeks ago as my autos were starting to flower. Saw Temps hit as high as 86! Fried one of my Blue Dreams as it was starting to flower. It lost most of it's leaves but is struggling through now.
