What To Consider Before Buying Your Grow Tent

We have one of the best ranges of grow tents in NZ. But with so many to choose from, how do you know which one will be the most suitable for what you want to grow?

The obvious answer is to get in touch with us. We’ll ask what your specific requirements are, and make a recommendation as a result. In the meantime, here are a few things to look at during the early stages of your search for the perfect grow tent.

What size do you need? 

This is the first thing to consider and might be an obvious place to start, but a lot of people get this part wrong as they fail to properly calculate just how many plants they’re going to grow ( and how big those plants will grow).

Plus they don’t factor in the space that might be required for any extra accessories they might add, such as LED grow lights or ventilation systems. They even overlook the possibility that they might need to enter the tent instead of just reaching inside. So do your sums at this stage to ensure your tent gives you enough workable space.   

    How tall will your plants grow? 

    Some plants grow taller than others, of course, but make sure you have a specific idea of the maximum height yours might reach. For greater flexibility, consider a grow tent with adjustable poles or an extension kit.  

      Where will your grow tent be located? 

      If your grow tent will be located inside your home, such as the spare room or garage, then a standard tent will be fine. However, if you want to place it outside, look for a grow tent made from the most durable materials and with compact stitching.  

        How are you going to create adequate ventilation? 

        Good ventilation is a key factor in successful hydroponic growing, so this needs to be part of your thinking as you select your new grow tent. You’ll need an electrical port or connection of some type to set up a ventilation system, and if you’re placing your grow tent indoors, have a window or other opening available to set up your exhaust fan vents.
