Planning on growing four plants and I've decided that a grow tent is the best option for me, but I have no idea what dimensions will work best for me? Also, do you think I should get a 250w, 400w, or 600w hps system?

I have 4 plants in a 4x4 tent and it is just a bit too small... I mean, I make it work but would be MUCH happier with a 5x5. As far as light goes, 600 watts.

Ok, fellow blade, 1st thing first ! What's your Budget ? How many plants do you want to grow ? Me personally I use a medium tent and 400W with excellent result. Go to my Sig and see the Pics I posted about the tent yesterday !

P.S. - I harvested n post pics yesterday from a 400W

Hey thanks for starting the thread i also was wondering on how to choose a size and maker for grow tent and supplies. I have a spare room and have a closet grow going but it has 2 sliding doors so light and odor leaks into room. Closets about 5ft wide 2 1/2 ft deep and bout 5 ft tall. I can fit 4 Ladies since for side lighting im using 1x light socket with 4x 26watt CFLs on Y adapters on each side and for main lights i got a 250hps and a 65 watt CFL. Temps get to 86. In that spare room i have a cabinet which i use to clone and Veg other ladies.

My issues is the light leaking at night lights up room, semi odor but also i need help increasing yield. Im not sure if its cus im impatient at times and kill my ladies early (wk 5 or 7 at latest). But would waiting to week 9 or 10 on a white widow or super lemon haze make that huge impact on yield? Average yield per ladies 1 zip dry.

So that is why sometimes when im hie i think it seems that grow tents which dont allow any light leakage give better yields not sure. Im also wondering if going with a 450 hps would make major increase in yield or temp.
