We like to think of tents in Small (3ftx3ft & 2ftx4ft), Medium (4ftx4ft & 5ftx5ft), Large (6ftx6ft & 4ftx8ft), and Extra Large (pretty much anything bigger than 4ftx8ft) sizes. Today we’ll be going over small grow tents: perfect for any small scale, personal gardener.
Micro and hobby growers are used to working in tight spaces. Whether it’s one of those tiny high tech grow units or a repurposed wardrobe, growers used to growing a couple of plants usually grow in a space of around 3ftx3ft, 2ftx4ft, or smaller.
DIY and fancy setups are convenient but their environments can be hard to control. There’s usually little to no proper ventilation in those small spaces, which makes it tricky to control temperature and humidity, leading to an underwhelming harvest. Even high tech setup’s tend to keep temps down by using low-powered lights that can leave you with an underwhelming harvest. That’s where Small grow tents come in handy.
3ftx3ft and 2ftx4ft are great sizes to grow 1-3 fruit and flowering plants comfortably. Though you can cram more plants in there if you’d like to Sea of Green in a small space, without a lot of room to work around your plants things can get hairy in that grow room quickly. Remember that the more plants you have the more living organisms you have breathing in your growing space which means they’ll need room, light, and fresh air to do so.
To make sure your garden gets all the air and light they need, we recommend sticking to 1-3 in those spaces. 250w to 400w HID’s will cover plants in that size space, so there’s no need to try to overpower your plants with a 600w, 1000w, or double ended lights (though CMH’s will work just fine in there). If you’re going the LED route, stay around 270w’s (Photo: LuchaGrow via Youtube)
