Definition - What does Grow Tent mean?
A grow tent is best described as a portable grow room. Although the majority of grow tents are marketed towards cannabis growers, grow tents can be used to grow a wide range of crops.
Like regular tents, grow tents range in sizes and quality of materials, but most of them have a few things in common; they are completely sealable with zipper enclosures, have reflective material for the interior, have various ports for installing electrical equipment, and have water-rsistant floors and sides. The majority of grow tents on the market are black in color. All of these features make grow tents ideal for containing a cannabis grow efficiently and discreetly.
Hydrolife explains Grow Tent
Grow tents are ideal for hobby growers who don't wish to retrofit an existing space in their home, they just simply erect a grow tent and are often up and running in the same day.
Grow tents are also useful for quarantining mother plants or sick plants, or for setting up plants in different stages of growth, i.e., one grow tent is filled with clones, while another larger tent is filled with plants in the vegetative stages. These tents allow the grower to alter grow environments within the same grow space.
Grow tents start as small as countertop versions for propagating seedlings and can be as big as filling a two-car garage. Grow tent manufacturers cater to all levels of growing, offering up budget-friendly versions, premium-grade versions, stripped-down versions, and robust plug-and-play packages.
Many marijuana growers just starting out prefer the grow tent packages, which take the guesswork out of the growing, as they come with the right amount of lighting for the confined space.
Grow tents are carefully designed to accommodate a range of equipment, whether the user is growing using hydroponics or in traditional soil.
