Hydroponic Grow Tents Guide

A grow tent is a self-contained indoor growing space that allows you to create the perfect environment for strong, healthy cannabis plants. It functions just like a grow box, but has soft sides, lighter and is more easily moved. Use this guide to find the ideal grow tent for your next indoor grow.

Grow Tent Features – From fabric and zipper quality to light resistance and convenient ports, learn what to look for in a good grow tent.

How Many Plants Fit in a Grow Tent – Consider not only the size of your grow tent but also, the strain of cannabis you wish to grow. As a rough guide, a small 2’ x 2’ tent supports 16 plants, while the massive 8’ x 8’ can house up to 256 small plants on multiple levels!

What is a Grow Tent?The only real difference between a grow tent and a grow box is that grow tents, as the name suggests, are made from fabric stretched over a framework of poles. This means they are much more versatile and easier to move than grow boxes because you are able to fold them away. This is handy if you ever have to move your grow op, or if you are an occasional grower and want to dismantle your grow tent between grows.Marijuana Plants in Grow TentThe downside is that grow tents are structurally weaker than grow boxes. There are many stories on the online marijuana forums about cheap, value range grow tents that have collapsed under the weight of grow lights and ventilation equipment, squashing plants underneath. So, to avoid breaking your expensive grow lights and ruining your mood, proper research is more than essential. Accidents like this also carry a real risk of fire, especially if you are using hot HID lights.Marijuana Plants in Grow Tent - Flowering StageFortunately, most grow tents are well made. Quality tents are often massively over engineered for the number of people using them. Even run-of-the-mill, mid-range tents are easily up to the job. Avoid very cheap tents from eBay or other bargain sites.The fabric used the construction of good grow tents is normally a heavy duty Oxford canvas. This may be laminated to add stiffness and waterproofing, and then backed by a reflective surface.Putting together a grow tent is easy and can be done in minutes. The poles just slip together to form the frame and then the skin is pulled over the top. It’s a lot like setting up a normal camping tent. There will be bars that run across the top for hanging lights and fans.   Grow Tent OptionsSome grow tents are just that: a standalone tent for you to put your own plants and equipment into. Others come as complete kits, just like the hydroponic grow box kits, except they are pliable and portable.Buying a complete grow tent system is an ideal choice for a new grower as it will contain everything you need to get you started out growing your first crop of marijuana. If you are starting from scratch and can afford to pay for convenience, then you should consider a grow tent kit.If you already have some equipment, or are on a tight budget and need to build your system as you go, then a simple grow tent is a good starting place. You can add more grow lights and ventilation as you are able.Grow Tent FeaturesAny description of a grow tent should mention some of the following features. These are the little details that make all the difference when it comes to durability and stealth. Some key components of a great grow box include:

  • Fire and tear resistant –While unlikely, it is always possible that a light may fall or water could spill on the electronics while you’re not home. The last thing you want to do is start a fire!
  • Light tight – Look for a grow tent that is light tight. This is essential for a stealth grow, but also an important precaution against wasting valuable growing energy.
  • Quality zips – The quality of the zips is crucial. These are the parts of the grow tent that get used daily. Because the taught canvas helps hold your tent in shape, a burst zip can ruin not only the light integrity of your tent but its structural integrity as well.
  • Robust corners – The corners of your grow tent take the weight and hold the frame in place. It is essential that they are strong, well made and reinforced.
  • Strong poles – height adjustment – The poles of your grow tent need to take the weight of lights and fans without buckling. Metal poles are best, especially steel. Also look out for height adjustment models which allow you to accommodate growing plants and different strains.
  • Ventilation – exhaust ports – Tents that offer several different ventilation panels and intake/outtake ports allow you to be more versatile. Good ventilation is one of the key requirements to successful marijuana growing.
  • Cord ports – This seems like a minor detail but it is essential to a successful growing experience. If you can’t zip up the tent and leave your lights plugged in, what’s the point?
  • Strong fabric – The stronger the fabric the better. Tough canvas helps keep mask noise and odors while keeping pests and disease out. It also means that an accidental light or hydro system falling over won’t rip the tent apart.

Grow Tent ExtrasLook for these extra features when shopping for a grow tent. They can make your life a bit easier and your grow more fun.

  • Removable floor insert (flood tray) – This creates an extra precaution against large spills. It lines the bottom of the grow tent and will contain any water that overflows your system.
  • Observation windows – They let you take a look inside the tent without unzipping the doors. This is especially useful if you use augmentation and don’t want all that CO2 to come flooding out when you open the door.
  • Pockets – Pouches and pockets for storing equipment can be very convenient. Great for keeping PPM/pH meters, pens, scissors, magnifiers and those other small pieces of kit that you are always misplacing.
  • Net trellis – A net trellis will help to support plants when they get heavy with buds, enabling you to grow bigger, fatter flowers.

How Many Plants Fit in a Grow Tent?Grow tents come in a huge choice of sizes, from tiny models for just a couple of plants, to room sized, commercial set ups that would supply a small ganja loving army.Large Grow Tent for MarijuanaHow many plants you fit into your grow tent is dependent totally on the marijuana strains that you are growing and the growing methods that you use. You will obviously be able to fit in a lot more plants in using the Sea of Green method than you will if you are using the Screen of Green method.Grow tent sizes marijuanaAs a rough guide, you should consider that the maximum plant density you get in an SOG set up is likely to be around 1 per 6” x 6” (15cm x 15cm) square. Therefore, the maximum amount of plants that you will fit in a variety of tent sizes is as follows:

Dimensions of Grow Tent

Maximum # of Plants using SOG

2’x2’162’x4’324’x4’644’x6’966’x6’1446’x8’1728’x8’256Remember, these numbers are the absolute maximum and would depend on you using every square inch of floor space and require you to light the tent equally across the whole of the footprint area. In a real growing situation, you would be unlikely to have as many plants as this in your tent.Marijuana SOG in Grow TentWhen working out the plant capacity for a tent, or any growing area for that matter, we traditionally only work from the floor space available. There are ways of making better use of the vertical space available, such as fitting shelves or using vertical marijuana growing systems.Cannabis SCOG in Grow Tent   Grow tent brandsOne of the best ways to ensure the quality of your grow tent is to purchase a recognized brand name with a good reputation amongst the marijuana growing community. There are lots of good grow tent manufacturers around. Here are a few companies that are well-known for quality:Grow Cube – Designed for professionals, with strong quality control and strong engineering. Velcro door holders, corner flaps, zip flaps, vents and ports for exhaust and electrical these are great tents. They offer the Grow Cube ‘Classic Range’, the Grow Cube Pro range and Loft Tent range.Secret Jardin – These are worldwide manufacturers of grow tents. High light proofing using 95% reflecting Mylar, very compatible with hydro system and the material is washable.Secret Jardin MarijuanaGorilla – In 2011 they aimed to create a new indoor growing environment that is safe, smart, big, strong, tall, quiet, odor proof, stealthy, insulated, durable, and long lasting. They are often used by companies like Dealzer and SuperCloset for their kits.Gorilla Grow Tents MarijuanaOasis – They always go for extra large air and light tight zippers, door and windows are designed so they do not have to rolled up, ducts have canvas around them for added toughness and offer steel poles.AgroMax – These are another tent brand to consider. Grow tent that allows you to create a micro-environment and precisely control temperature / humidity levels / photo-period. The construction is light proof.Choosing a Grow TentWe are assuming that you’ll want to find the best deal for your budget, whether you are buying a simple tent or an entire kit. When pricing up a grow tent kit is important to know everything that is included in the deal. This is the only way to make a good price comparison.

Luckily, we have done some of this work for you.We’ve compiled the best grow tents on the market into one list, making it easy for you to find the perfect grow tent for your needs.Best Grow Tents for 2017-2018

      This is something you need to work out for yourself. We don’t sell anything, we provide information. Start by asking the tent manufacturers what kind of deals they have on.
