The humidity is of a great benefit as you can provide much more fresh air with a basic set up in fact you may even be able to open air fruit without having to spend hours a day misting.
Gah wouldn't that be a dream! Actually moving into the place tomorrow
I have a flow hood- well it's in pieces now; have to remake the frame as it didn't travel with me in the move.
I've got a number of different options as far as grow 'rooms' go... One is a 8''x6''x6'' ''mini pool'' - all tiled, and in the corner of the kitchen of all places... (wtf was this person thinking when they designed the place is quite a common thought when seeing some of the constructions down here) though, while It could be pretty great for keeping humidity, it would slightly more challenging to vent for fresh air- That, and, the space kind of screams to be made into a sense dep tank... I could do that for way cheap- pretty much the cost of a heater and the salt...
On the other hand, there's a good deal of space outside, and it's a pretty shaded area; so there should be some good spots outside
I've seen some partially disintegrating raised raised beds (will take photos later)- that look like they hold some potential-
I initially envisioned doing monotubs like I have experience with in temperate climates; but the idea open air fruiting is super desirable- Though, I think that might only actually be possible to do during rainy season- Will have to await a humidistat test to find out what the humidity actually is at this time of year. It is 'dry' season...
I also want to grow a good quantity of edibles... More research is needed.
