A grow tent is a great piece of equipment in which more and more people across the world are opting to utilise when looking to grow vegetables and produce. However, although hydroponics most probably presents the ultimate growing solution, there are a number of things in which all need to consider before starting their hydroponic journeys in order to create the most superior grows.
Here are just some of things to think about when planning on growing inside a grow tent:
When deciding upon a location for a grow tent, it is important to remember that it is probably going to be there for quite some time. Not only should you ensure that it isn’t in a place where it is going to get in the way, but also that it is somewhere with power and easy access to water.
After choosing a grow tent people often start to think about where they’re going to put it, thinking about its measurements and such. However people need to remember that indoor, hydroponic gardens take up slightly more room than originally anticipated, as not only is there the grow tent itself to consider, but also there will have to be extra space for supplies such as advanced nutrients, access and more.
One Tent or Two
Sometimes it is difficult to choose between getting two smaller tents or one larger tent – there are of course advantages to both of these options however a growing number of hydroponic gardeners are choosing to go with two smaller tents as this allows for a greater range of produce to be grown simultaneously. Not only does having two tents enable people to create two different growing environments, but also it is especially recommended for beginners because if any problems occur in one tent, the plants growing inside the other tent will still be safe from harm.
Just like with anything else, when putting hydroponics equipment together, instructions should always be followed – and this should always be done when the person has enough time, so they don’t have to rush anything. It is always best practice to read through any instruction thoroughly before starting to assemble, this provides a clear picture of how it is going to go.
Lights should always be coordinated with tent size! Under-lit tents are known to under-perform and over-lit tents can be detrimental also as they can overwhelm a tents ability to cool and even stall and kill plants inside the tent.
