But benefits aren’t limited to yield. Grow tents are outfitted with fan ports to swap hot, CO2-depleted air for a neutral, fresh breeze, improving a grower’s chances of raising healthy plants. Additionally, by limiting the size of a grow space, filtered exhaust fans scrub the air using far less electricity than they would in an open room—thereby minimizing a garden’s overall power consumption.

Lastly, if you’re looking for a short tent to host a dedicated veg space, you can go even shorter than the tents above to ensure plants don’t get too big during the flower phase.

Perhaps the biggest draw is a grow tent’s ability to capture every last beam of light emitted by power-hungry horticultural fixtures: Lined with reflective materials like diamond mylar, light that would otherwise fall away from plants is sent ping-ponging between tent walls to be redistributed and absorbed across the canopy.

5.) Sound, Stealth and Safety Check

There are hundreds of models of grow tents, and they come in many different sizes. It can be confusing to know which one to get for your situation, and which ones are best overall. This should help clear things up!

Lastly, take a good look around inside the tent. Everything should be secure. Make sure that any electronics are off the ground (power strips, ballasts, wires) just in case there’s ever a water spill.

When it comes to grow tents two of the most common sizes (in the US) for hobbyist growers are the 2’x4′ and 4’x4′ tents. These are also made to fit the most common grow lights.

At its simplest, a grow tent just needs an exhaust fan and a grow light. At this point you’ve already created a great cannabis growing environment! See a grow journal in this setup!

For bigger growers, a 4’x4′ grow tent is great because it can be used with the next class of grow lights up to some of the biggest grow lights. It can support a 600-1000W HPS or LED grow light as long as it’s 6-7′ tall.

For both air and water pumps, it makes a difference to place them on something besides directly on the ground. For example placing them on a piece of wood will muffle the vibration.
