importing grow tent recomendation

  1. I live in Bangkok Thighland, ready to start growing my own meds because quality and availability here is awful.  I found one place here with a small grow tent for sale.  I think its 3X3X5, they want almost $300 and its probably a cheap Chinese tent.  I can order a Gorilla tent and have it shipped here for an extra $150 plus probably 20% import duties....  so my question is do I spend $300 for low quality or spend $500 for quality?
    Any input or suggestions are welcome.
    Oh, before someone suggests it...  No home depot here, all my power tools are back in Los Angeles, I ride a motorcycle, so building something is next to impossible. 

  2. Hello DDP and good luck with your grow. the answer to your question is 'it depends'. it depends on how much space u have for a tent; how many and how large are the plants u plan to grow. a 3x3x5ft tent is plenty large enough to grow 3 or 4 nice size plants. u will have to choose strains that dont get too tall at maturity as well.
    the Gorilla tent is well regaurded as a quality tent. i use a yeild lab myself. i have never used the gorilla but my advice would be to get the biggest tent u can afford or reasonablly have room for. good luck :smoke:
  3. Thank you for your reply. I didn't thing a 3x3 was big enough for that. My main concern was the height. I've been thinking on my ride in to work I'd just get the smaller local tent and do a grow or two. Worst case I buy a bigger tent for blooming and use small tent for mother/clones.Again, thank you sir.Sent from my iPhone using Grasscity Forum
  4. Budget is your only real constraint. If you can afford a better tent, then by all means buy one. I recently bought the Hydrohut Silver Edition 2x4. Out of the box it is a great looking tent. Plus it's actually larger than the 2x4 dimensions listed. I love that. The tent has ports everywhere, tons of them. The frame is stronger than normal because it snap-locks in place. The material (canvas) is very hearty and should last a good long while. I have utilized several secret jardine tents in the past and have had a few different problems. I like them, but they can be somewhat problematic. The silver edition light hanging bars are the first that I've owned where the bars fit nicely, correctly. If you live in a country that imposes extra monies, then get what you "really want" the first time if you can afford.
  5. So 4x4 gorilla tent is about $400, shipping to Thailand is $700! I'm trying a company called They are shipping it for about $200. I want to buy a nice carbon filter. But damn shipping again costs more than the part! Hope to have tent next week, will have to think about the filter.

  6. Hey, I'm in Bangkok to I brought in panda plastic last year but started to rip this year. So I decided to build a wood grow box. Cheap wood about 200baht 2x1.5m. White paint 2 small buckets 110baht each. My area is 1.2x1.5x1.2. Works good last longer but need to put intake air into it.
  7. I sure wouldn't promote a tent that wasn't the size listed . Size does matter .
