Been playing around with the idea of starting my own grow for a while, and finally have the time and space needed.

Not to crafty with my hands and also not in a permanent situation so wanting to get a grow tent.


Looking for any and all feedback on how to improve my set up.


For the tent was thinking:
Amazon.com: 24 x 48 x 60 inches. 100% Reflective Mylar Hydroponics Grow Tent, Non Toxic Hydro Dark Room Cabinet Box Hut, GYO1009: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Assuming my first grow goes well I was thinking of getting two of these and using one to veg everything and the other to flower.

Don't want to spike my energy bill too much, and since the inside of the tent is mylar was going to go with a 400-600w interchangeable MH/HPS.
Amazon.com: 400 Watt Electronic Switchable Ballast Hydroponic Grow Lamp System with Metal Halide and High Pressure Sodium HPS Light Bulbs, Cord + Hanger, GYO2002: Patio, Lawn & Garden

Ventilation I'm somewhat at a loss, from what I've read I should be leaving the intakes open and use negative pressure to vent out into a carbon filter.

Thanks for the feedback.

From what I've read that model has 2 intake flaps, and 3 4' fan slots. Can't seem to find anything in the sameish dimensions with 6' slots.

Would it be more prudent to have the two fans at the sides sucking and pulling air to create a cooling effect on the light, and then have the last fan dump into a carbon filter?

Or just stick with the negative pressure scenerio.
