each day? For example, if your garden has ten plants and you are watering with 1/2 gallon per plant per day, you will have 5
gallons of moisture you will need to remove from your room. Since we use pints to rate dehumidifiers, you need to multiply the
number of gallons you give to your plants each day by a factor of 8 to convert to pints, which for this example is 40 pints of
moisture you will need to remove.

drainage during watering should be expected and is actually good for the plants.
