New Grower Thinking About Buying Grow Tent

Discussion in 'First Time Marijuana Growers' started by RubyLemon, Jul 29, 2014.

  1. So I recently started growing in my closet but the conditions just arent cutting it for me and I'd like to maybe do more than just the one. SO I was browsing around online looking at grow tents and had a few questions.
     
    Let's say I want to do 6 plants. Will a 4' x 4' tent using 1 600W super hps bulb work?
    This is what I was looking at:

    there's a combo deal where you can get the tent and lights.
     
    I just want to know what I could be growing in one of those...in soil
     
    The one plant I do have is currently under a cfl light and i think sh's sexy so i'm kinda scared to change it up i need help!
     
    Thought I'd ask some experienced growers before shelling out the cash.
    Thanks in advance :)

  2. Buy the light first. hang that fucker and get growing then think about tents and all the other stuff you dont need.
     
    Lights are key, Id buy a 1,000 watt and go big. hang $25 worth of Mylar from the ceiling for a tent and watch the grass grow.
     
  3. the light is more important. i dont think u can fit that many plants into that size if i read it right.
     
  4. Well I just wanted the tent cause I don't have a very good light tight area that's all. OK maybe I'll look into a larger one

  5. I don't know much about lights the one I'm using now says it's 1610 lumens. I included a pic of my set up. Any tips or specific brands of light and equipment available to me in Canada would be so awesome

  6. Pretty solid plan you got there. But the most plants i would put in there is probably no more than 4... if you want to get more than 2 oz/plant. I'm guessing thats what you want if you're gonna go through all the trouble of growing right.
     
    A 600w is pretty good for a 4x4.. it'll get you enough light to have 4 ladies pretty healthy in there. You might want to get a fan and a carbon filter too if you're worried about smell and heat. (which you really should be with a 600w). If you want you could also do a SCROG in a 2x4 tent with the light setup and get some 5-8 oz per plant if you do it right.
     
    Any way u want to go... the light is most important. Next is insulation... make sure you have constant airflow in there to avoid pests and heat. Good luck man!
     
  7. UPDATE** This is the route I ended up going...now just to wait I guess :)

    Have I peaked your interest?

    Good :smoke:

    Here's a link to some past grows, using the very same tent and a single 600w bulb.

    YMMV

  10. A person who equates sex and cannabis?

    Now my interest is peaked! ;)
     
  11. They go well together.



    SO
    now I got my lil grow show on the go go I'm thinking I might buy a small tent and another 400 watt HID just for vegging and utilizing the larger space for flowering ...I'm setting up my closet for cloning once the time comes. I like everything to have its own space. Ja feel?
