    It is very important for two reasons.

    Firstly once your seedlings get bigger and start utilizing more CO2 in photosynthesis, they'll have a noticeable effect on the atmosphere in your closet environment. It is recommended that you change the air every 5 mins to maintain a fresh supply of CO2.

    Secondly, air movement simulates the wind and causes the plant to strengthen its stem. This mean the stem gets thicker allowing more nutrients to go up and down it. Also it's imperative for the plant to be able to support its weight, especially once it develops those big heavy buds you want.
