How to set up a Grow Tent
Once you receive your Grow Tent you should move the box into the room you wish to set the tent up in as this will save you time. The first step to setting up a grow tent is removing all the poles and mylar from its packaging and laying them out on the floor. As a result this will give you easy access to the parts you need and will make the whole experience easier.
Now you have the Grow Tent components in front of you, start inserting the poles labelled ‘A’ into steel corners. Make sure the corners with rubber feet on are facing down. This is because it will reduce the risk of damage occurring to the Grow Tents Floor.
Next, clip the poles and corners together to form the Grow Tents base. Once finishing the base, start clipping together poles ‘B’ & ‘C’ to form the verticle support poles. Now clip all four vertical support poles into the base corners and clip the remaining loose corners on top of these support poles. Insert the remaining poles into these corners to form the Grow Tent roof. Then place the hanging brackets onto the roof poles.
As a top tip, we suggest you don’t place the frame too close to a wall as this will hinder you when you come to wrapping the silver mylar around the frame.
Installing a Grow Tents Silver Mylar
Now you have the frame of the Grow Tent, the next step is to install the silver mylar. To do this, locate the roof section of the mylar and place this over the Grow Tent frame. Next, slide the mylar floor section under the grow tent frame. Make sure to support the frame so it doesn’t fall over. Once the roof and floor sections are secure, wrap the remaining mylar cover around the frame. However, make sure to zip the cover in place whilst you go along.
Finally, secure the removable mylar floor with the attached velcro straps. Then reposition the hanging brackets to a position that suits your growing needs.
