So maybe you’re thinking about buying your first grow tent but wondering why you should even be using one? Well, read on for 5 reasons why…
Create natural growing conditions
The grow tent is one of the most important pieces of equipment for indoor growing as it allows you to create the natural conditions needed to grow plants and vegetables. This in turn allows you to grow crops all year-round because you’re able to control the growing environment.
Improve light usage
One important benefit of grow tents is that they are lightproof and have a reflective coating inside to improve light utilisation along with a light proof, heavy duty exterior, which means outside factors have no influence over inside factors.
Simplify your growing space
As well as being lightproof, grow tents simplify the use of other growing equipment. Good quality grow tents have built in holders for grow lights, ports to fit various sizes of ventilation fans, holes for the wires, waterproof floor trays and more.
Control your growing environment
Choosing a grow tent can save money in the long run because it costs less to provide water, nutrients, and light to your plants. Because you completely control the growing environment, you will not experience water waste caused by excessive sun and the wind nor will you lose supplements to run-off caused by rain.
Choose the right fit for your space
Grow tents are designed to make efficient use of space and come in a variety of shapes and sizes to fit most spaces. There are small tents suitable for growing just a few plants, and large ones which can accommodate a full garden. They’re also designed to be easily built up, broken down and transported.
So, the grow tent eases many of the concerns related to indoor growing including creating the right growing environment, availability of space, and the cost of purchasing the equipment.
