Growing Your Own Coffee Organically In A Grow Tent

Espresso machine

I have written on this blog about growing my own tea organically. I basically use the same method that people use to grow marijuana or succulents. I put the tea plant in some pots and put it inside a grow tent. I add LED grow lights to provide all the lighting the tea needs. Growing in a grow tent also allows me to control the climate completely, so I can give my tea the humid conditions it needs. This has resulted in some great harvests. It has also resulted in my next idea.

I’ve now decided to grow coffee organically in the same manner, in a grow tent underneath my LED grow lights. Growing coffee is not unlike growing tea. It has slightly different requirements, but they are not that different. Moreover, since I’m growing indoors in a grow tent, I can provide whatever climate my plants want. It doesn’t matter what the weather is like outside.

So why did I decide on coffee? Because I also like coffee and because I recently got a brand-new espresso machine. I went with an expensive machine called the Oscar from a company called Nouva Simonelli. This machine is very expensive, but it makes an amazing cup of coffee. An I love having a good cup of coffee when I kick back and relax and listen to my favorite vinyl albums on my vintage record player.

At first, I considered going with a cheaper machine, like the ones you find on Amazon. The reason for that was that I found an article covering the best coffee espresso machines that come with grinders, making me think they were the top models. But once I read that article, I realized it was only covering the middle end of the market and I wanted a high-end machine like the Oscar.

And of course, now that I had high-end espresso maker like the Oscar, I needed a high-end coffee. I bought a bunch of different types and found ones that I liked, and I have to say coffee is fairly cheap, just like tea, but I always felt like I didn’t know where it was coming from. The coffee packaging said it was organic, but was it really? You can never really know, unless you make it yourself.

That was the conclusion I drew for tea, because I just don’t trust things you buy from China and it is also the conclusion I drew for coffee. If I wanted to be sure that I was getting healthy organic coffee, I would need to grow it myself. And I definitely wanted to be sure of that, because I only wanted to feed my new espresso machine the very best coffee beans.

So I got myself some beans and put them in a grow tent. I decided to get a new grow tent and not use the same one that I was using for my tea plants. This also meant I had to buy another LED grow light which is also quite expensive. I ended up getting a nice security system too, just to ensure the safety of my new expensive equipment. This goes both for my grow lights and for my Oscar espresso machine.

I have not yet had a coffee harvest, but I’m very excited to try it. For now I will use my store-bought supposedly organic coffee beans, but as soon as I have my own I will be using those. I absolutely cannot wait to try my wonderful new coffee that I am growing myself in my grow tent under a grow light in my brand-new espresso maker with the wonderful name Oscar. I am so excited for this.

Can You Be Sure Organic Products Are Really Organic?

organic vegetables

There is a reason organic products have become so popular. With all the stories of toxins and other contaminants in our food supply, it makes sense that people want to know that their food is clean. Growing your own is really the only surefire way to ensure this, but for most of us that is not really possible, so we rely on organic products. This is what we call the organic products lifestyle.

All that said, growing your own food isn’t really all that difficult. You just need to get some indoor grow lights and you can start your own vegetable garden in your basement. And it’s not just veggies. You can grow just about anything. We’ve had articles on this site about growing tea on your own indoors or growing other fruits and vegetables. You can grow them inside grow tents or you can just have a basement room.

Naturally, you can also grow outdoors, but that limits what you can grow and when you can grow it. For that reason we generally recommend growing indoors using LED grow lights or something similar. It just works a lot better.

organic vegetables

If you can’t, though, then you have to rely on organic products. You have to rely on other people growing those organic products and then labeling them correctly. That is a problem.

There been so many stories of incorrectly labeled products, especially ones coming from countries like China and India. The sad truth is, you can’t trust anything that is labeled as organic if it comes from one of those countries. Growers there have no scruples about labeling something as an organic product when it isn’t one it all.

But how about in the West? If you’re living in Europe or the United States or Canada or any other country in the West, can you trust these labels? I would say not really. In Europe perhaps you can trust it, but in the United States I definitely would not. The people in charge of the food supply in the US are incredibly corrupt. The government is controlled by money and the companies that benefit from putting toxins in our food supply have tons of money and control the government. For that reason I don’t think you can trust anything labeled as organic in the United States.

If you want to take part in the organic products lifestyle, your best bet is to grow your own food. That takes time and costs a bit of money, but it is not impossible. It is totally worth doing, in my opinion. But, I know most people can’t do it. I myself don’t really have enough time to grow all of my food organically. In fact, making sure everything you consume is organic is virtually impossible.

But you can grow far more than you think yourself. I started growing my own tea. Then, when I got an expensive coffee machine, I also started growing my own coffee indoors under grow lights.

For that reason you do have to trust other people at some point. You can buy locally, but how can you be sure you can trust that? The truth is you can’t. But you have to. For me, I know that I’m consuming some things that aren’t that great for me and that’s just the way it is. There’s nothing I can do about it.

Organic Tea Gardening Right In Your Own Home

What you drink is a major component of most modern diets. Almost all diets can agree that sodas are no good and most say the same about alcohol. Some to tell you that alcohol is fine in moderation, and even beneficial, but they all tell you not to drink too much. The same goes for coffee. Most diets say coffee is okay, as long as you don’t overdo it. But the one drink no one ever says not to overdo is tea.

With our focus on an organic lifestyle, it should be obvious that we recommend organic tea above all else. The difference is basically the same as for other plants. Organic tea growers do not use pesticides or other chemicals to grow their tea. They grow using ancient methods so that the leaves you get are pure and free of any harmful substances.

Is Organic Tea Actually Organic

The problem is that, apart from Japan, most teas that we consume come from either China, India or Kenya. All three of those countries have a long tradition of lying about something like the organic nature of their products. They might have organic stamps, but you certainly cannot trust them. Even though the government in some of these countries, especially China, claims they’re doing their best to regulate the organic industry and ensure that anything labeled as organic actually is organic, there’s just so much corruption within the government organizations in all three of these countries, that you can’t be sure you’re actually getting organic tea.

So what can you do?

organic loose leaf green tea

As with so many other foods, the best solution is to grow your own. Yes, it is very possible to grow your own tea. Tea likes to have a relatively warm climate, but it likes the high altitude where it is a bit cooler. So basically, a subtropical high-altitude climate. Tea plants also need a lot of water. All the tea growing regions in the world are very humid and they get a lot of rain. If you live in an area where you do not have this type of climate, you might be thinking “too bad.” “I guess I can’t grow tea.” That is not true.

Grow Your Own Tea

You can actually grow tea indoors. Just like marijuana or any organic flowers or vegetables or herbs or fruits, you can also grow tea inside. Obviously, you need to provide the water and the light in these cases. You’ll need to provide a lot of water and you want to keep the grow area quite humid. For this reason it is a good idea to have an enclosed grow space, like maybe a greenhouse or just a simple grow tent.

Good Grow Lights For Tea

For light, tea actually uses less light than many plants. It doesn’t flower, so you really just need good vegging lights. LED grow lights are good for this or florescent lights or you could use metal halide lights, although I would only recommend that for a larger garden. Personally, I would get one good LED fixture that has a lot of blue spectrum light, since you don’t need as much red spectrum light for plants that don’t flower. Apart from that I might get a fluorescent fixture or an LED fixture like the NextLight Veg 8, which basically mimics a fluorescent fixture but is better in every way.

Processing And Oxidizing The Tea

Tea is not all that hard to grow. The hardest thing will be harvesting at the right time and then processing the freshly picked leaves the correct way. As soon as you pick the leaves, they start to oxidize. If you want white tea you don’t let them oxidize very long at all and you generally use very young shoots. This means you would harvest very early.

For green tea you let them oxidize a bit but only it a little bit. Then you need to stop the oxidation process by using heat. You either roast the tea, as is common in China, or you steam the tea, as is more common in Japan. Either way you heat it to stop the oxidation process. If you let it oxidize completely, you get black tea.

For oolong tea you would stop somewhere in between green tea and black tea. There is actually a large variety of oolong teas. Some are just slightly oxidized and are almost green teas and others are much more oxidized. Darjeeling tea is a good example of the latter. Most people consider it a black tea, but it is actually an oolong tea.

Finally, there are also yellow tea and pu-erh tea, but I wouldn’t worry about those two. They are much more rare and much more complicated and if you are a first-time grower, you’re probably just going to make green tea or black tea or maybe oolong tea. In fact you will probably end up with oolong tea by accident.

Either way, your new organic tea will taste great and you’ll hopefully have studied up on the best way to brew and drink your variety. A safe bet for almost all types of tea is a nice see-through teapot with a strainer so you can watch the tea leaves unfurl. The infuser is not necessary, but it makes it much simpler to keep the tea leaves out of your cup. Many places in China just brew tea in a glass, so it is certainly possible to make good tea without an infuser. However you choose to drink it, I hope you enjoy your first batch and I know that your second will be much better than the first and your third better than that. Happy growing!

Ideal Grow Lights for Succulents

succulents growing under indoor grow lights

When it comes to the art of growing succulents, light is one of the most important factors to consider. This is even more true for people who grow succulents indoors because of winter weather. Ideal grow lights come in many different forms and many are determined not just by how much light is needed, but by the size of the growing space and the what your available budget is. You can find much more info on grow lights and helpful reviews here:

For succulents in general, fluorescent lights are the way to go since they emit enough light to help stimulate plant growth, regardless of how well-lit a household is in general. If you do use fluorescent lights instead of incandescent lights, keep in mind that the light should be toward the plants and away from any eyesight as fluorescent lights tend to cause eye irritation. The size of said fluorescent lights depends on the overall size of the growing area.

succulents growing under indoor grow lightsIf the available space is rather small and light bulbs are needed, the best kind of fluorescent lights to use are CFL light bulbs which can be screwed into most standard light fixtures. If the available space is much larger and tubes are required or preferred, then fluorescent lights tube bulbs of the T5 or T8 variety are highly recommended. These recommendations are more for budget-minded individuals who want the best inexpensive lights they can find. For people who have a large amount of money to spend, there are more expensive options available, thought the effectiveness of them may vary depending on product.

The ideal grow light distance for succulents is anywhere between 1 and 2 feet between light and plant. Therefore, a good grow light would fit well at this distance, but can still be replaced rather easily. The CFL bulbs and the T5 plus T8 tubes also fit well within these parameters. The reason for the rather small distance between the lights and the plants is that the strength of the fluorescent lights tends to diminish rather quickly from the light source, so a small distance is ideal for maximum plant growth.

When choosing the right grow light, another consideration is the amount of life available in the bulbs or tubes themselves. When growing succulents, the more sunlight or artificial light available during the day, the better. Bulbs or tubes which can last longer under strong usage will be ideal and lights with long life spans will be excellent for long-term plant growth. Efficiency versus availability is another consideration. A T5 tube bulb is more efficient, but is more difficult to find while a T8 is less efficient while being more readily available.
In the question of just how many bulbs or tubes to use for succulent growth stimulation. the answer comes down to what the available budget is and how many plants you want to grow. Most small-scale growers will want to stick with 1 to 5 lights while large-scale growers will want lights numbering higher from 7 to 10.

When determining just what is a good grow light to use for succulents, there are many factors to consider. Budget, space, efficiency are just a few and the bulbs which can touch on these the easiest will be the best to purchase. The CFL bulbs and the T5 and T8 tube bulbs fit into most of these categories and are readily available. As with any growing experience, your own experience may vary, but these are among the best to start out with.

Selecting the Appropriate Plant Light Bulbs for Your Home Nursery

Plant light bulbs can be a big pain! You need the right ones but selecting them or knowing which fits the bill is often very difficult. The problem is there are a dozen light bulbs

Plant light bulbs can be a big pain! You need the right ones but selecting them or knowing which fits the bill is often very difficult. The problem is there are a dozen light bulbs available today and they all offer something different! Some bulbs will be bigger in wattage and others will be made especially for certain lights. So, how can you select the appropriate plant light bulb for your home nursery?

Consider What Plants You Are Trying To Grow

When it comes to buying grow lights for indoor plants or new light bulbs even, it’s actually easy to do but only when you know what you need. So, what type of plants are you looking to grow in your home nursery? Do you want to choose an organic tomato plant? Or, are you more of an exotic planter, growing your own coffee, for example? If you spend a ton of money on an expensive espresso maker, you want to be sure you’re using quality coffee beans in it, after all.

Whatever your chosen plant may be, it’s necessary to match the bulbs with that. If you don’t choose the right ones then the plants may not grow as they should or could take far longer. That isn’t what you want so you have to be wary of the type of plants you’re growing.

Wattage Needs To Be Taken Into Consideration

If your plants require a small or lower watt light bulb then you must focus on these; and if the plants require lighter then higher wattages are required. It is hard to know which bulbs are right so that is why wattage needs to be taken into account. Selecting the right bulbs can be a lot easier than you’d think and it isn’t too difficult once you know the type of watt you need. Most people forget about wattage and yet it really is an important factor for almost every buyer today. If you buy the wrong wattage for your plants, you end up with a dull bulb. Plant light bulbs must match the plants and their needs!

How Much Are You Happy To Spend On New Plant Light Bulbs

Another factor you must consider is the cost. How much do you want to spend and are you happy with cost-effective bulbs or do you require the more expensive ones? These are the things you must think about when it comes to grow lights for indoor plants and buying new bulbs. Also, visit this website to read more. You may be happy with the less costly model but then again, you may not. It can vary significantly on what you need and want and of course costs. It would be great to go for the best but that can at times come with a higher price tag so you have to be wary.

Getting the Right Fit for Your Nursery

Plants are delicate things. One minute they need sunlight and the next, water; and if you overshoot either then you have a lot of issues! The problem is plants need a balance and if they aren’t given the right lighting then they could fail to grow. That is why choosing the best plant light bulbs will be necessary and it isn’t too difficult to do either once you know what to look for.

How to choose the right indoor marijuana to grow light

Due to the inconsistent changes in weather patterns, weed growers have sought the alternative of indoor planting so that they can harvest on time irrespective of the weather. Indoor grow lights for weed just like in any other plants require the grower to select the kind of lights keenly to use in the tents. The kind of lights used for growing weed gives different results and also determines the amount of time that the plant will take to mature. Plants need light to mature and should, therefore, have adequate lighting even indoors.

The source of the light should be close to the plants. Plants that grow in insufficient lights tend to have small leaves and lighter colors.

Indoor growing tents

This method of planting is done in indoor grow tents. These are ventilated light proof materials that allow the farm to control the amount of light that reaches the plant. These tents act as a protector to the plants from insects and pests that destroy the weed plant. They also reflect light which is essential to the plants during photosynthesis. One should ensure that the materials used to make the tents are durable, one that is easy to assemble.

Hydroponics lighting

Indoor growing of weed is done through a method called hydroponics. This means that plants grow in nutrient solutions in the absence of soil. Using this method gives a farmer the liberty to plant weed anywhere as long as the indoor growing conditions are met. Changing weather patterns do not interfere with the maturity of crops in this kind of farming since the tents control temperatures. You can also visit this site for more information. This gives the farmer an assurance in the production of the crop. Insects that survive in soil do not attack plants planted in such conditions which in turn saves the farmer the cost of some of the pesticides used on the plants.

Types of lights used in indoor

The main kind of light used in theindoor growing of weed is the HPS grow lights (High-Pressure Sodium light. This type of lighting help plants in the budding process. These lights efficiently ensure that all the plants get the equal cover of light. A gardener can check the intensity of the light by placing their hand where they plan to place the plant to see if the light is too much for the plant. In the end you should checkout this url: here. Different types of lights should be placed at different distances.

HPS lights have a red spectrum which works as a starter to the weed plants in the morning. The light system should be placed in a way that the plant tops receive the same amount of light. Placing the lights closer to the wall ensures that the plants get even lighting as compared to when the lights are placed in the middle of the garden.

LED lights should be placed very close to the plantFluorescent bulbs should be placed 3 inches away from the plant while the induction lighting should be placed 14-18 inches away.

The lights used in the indoor growing of weed vary depending on intensity. One should consider several factors before they purchase the lights. The factors include intensity, the spectrum and the period the lights are required to work.Grow lights for indoor plants emit electromagnetic spectrums which aid in photosynthesis.

3 Step Beginner’s Guide To Choosing An Led Grow Light For Indoor Plant

The LED grow lights are attractive and durable and pertain to a large number of users who are interested in using these lights. Sometime wrongly interpreted these lights are very much different from the high pressure sodium or the halide lights. These are different in size, shape as well as in the spectrum. Although there is a rising popularity for the LED grow light yet there are many who want to know more about these lights so that they can choose the right kind of indoor grow lights for weed pertaining to the indoor grow tent.

Although the number of issues related to this can be many yet the most critical points have been highlighted here so that you can effectively choose the right kind of LED grow light.

The major factors which must be kept in mind include the following:

  • The nature of the grow

Deciding about the LED grow light, largely depend upon the type of crop grown over the farm. Some of the crops are usually fats growing and some are full cycle crops. So the LED grow lights are available for a wide variety of crops and seedlings. You can also get grow lights for indoor plants. In case of the full cycle crops the lights will be useful for the whole period from the seeding till the flower. Based on the specific type of the crop, you need to choose the exact type which will be suitable for the crop. The different categories of lights are used separately for the eatables, fruits and nut plants. More details here.

  • The size of the growing space

The specific size of the growing space will specify the exact size and the number LED units or the indoor grow lights for weed.  As a general rule one needs to have the 25 watts of power for each square foot of the growing space. Even in case of the indoor grow tent, the number of lights is very crucial. The safe investment is to b ring greater number of lights, because lesser lights can eventually effect the growth of the plant so it is better to invest sensibly. Lesser lights will mean lesser plant activity for food manufacturing.

  • The availability of different types of LED grow lights

For making a better choice for all types of plants as well as for the grow lights for indoor plants, one must possess a thorough knowledge about the availability of different types of LED lights available. It will help you to make the most appropriate choice. If the knowledge about different types is limited, it can eventually restrict the effectiveness of these lights.

  • Full cycle LED lights
  • Lights for blooming and vegging
  • Programmable lights
  • Panels
  • Bars
  • UFOs

So you can choose the best indoor grow lights for weeds based on this knowledge, also you can read our post here for more helpful tips:

What is a Hydroponic Grow Tent?

A hydroponic grow tent is a portable, enclosed space that provides an ideal environment for your indoor plants to flourish. The light, temperature, humidity and other requirements of the plants can be carefully regulated inside this type of structure, and it provides a safe and protective spot for the plants to grow. A grow tent is typically used by people who enjoy gardening but don’t have any outdoor space to do so. They are also a favorite of year-round gardeners who like to grow fresh vegetables no matter what the season.

Although it’s called a tent, it’s rectangular in shape and is supported by a lightweight, easy to assemble the metal frame. The exterior is usually dark colored nylon or polyester, which absorbs light, and is lined with white or silver mylar or thermal film on the interior to retain heat and reflect light to the plants.

Typically, they have a removable, water-resistant floor tray in the event of spillage and a metal grid on the ceiling for hanging lights and other accessories. They zip open and closed to allow easy access to your plants, and are available in a range of sizes to suit any needs. You won’t need any tools to assemble a grow tent, and they are fast and easy to set up.

Other features of a hydroponic grow tent include lighting systems such as metal halide or high-pressure sodium, a fan system for ventilation, a setup to facilitate the delivery of hydroponic nutrient, and an odor control system. Some of the higher end models feature air conditioning to keep the temperature at an optimal level and a carbon dioxide regulator to maximize growth.

Hydroponic grow tents range in price from about $75 to almost $2000 for deluxe versions.

Here’s a look at some of the equipment you can find in a grow tent and what it can do for your plants:

  • Carbon filters which prevent odors from escaping the tent
  • Lighting systems that provide better energy uptake than sunlight
  • Nutrient systems that make it easy to supply your plants with the nutrients they need in the absence of soil
  • Ventilation systems to provide optimal air circulation throughout the tent and help to control temperature and humidity
  • Carbon systems that encourage photosynthesis
  • Water filtering systems that filter the nutrient solution to remove particles that not only harm your plants but could also damage your delivery system

Simple Indoor Gardening Tips For Enjoying Your Fresh Fruits And Vegetables

With the incredible growth and popularity of “going organic” when it comes to the food we eat, there has also been a renewed growth in gardening, so we know exactly what we are getting when it comes to our fruits and vegetables.

While there’s an added time factor, we are also saving money, too.

But not everyone has the available space outdoors to have their full garden with the fruits and vegetables they want to grow.

And that’s where indoor gardening and indoor gardening tips come into play. If you don’t have a yard that’s big enough, or don’t have a yard at all, that’s okay. You can still have a garden.

Here are some simple indoor gardening tips about the most important pieces of any successful indoor garden and that’s your containers, lighting, space and water.

One thing you are going to need is a potting mix. Do not take outdoor soil for your indoor garden.

There are two very important ingredients potted soil must have, and those are perlite and organic matter like peat moss. Check the bag and make sure these ingredients are listed.

According to Mary McLellan, the state master garden coordinator at Michigan State University, anything you can grow outdoors in your garden, you can grow indoors as well.

So if you’re living in an apartment or condo, you can still grow your carrots, peppers, lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, squash, organic tea and more. You can even grow coffee, which is great if you also have a high quality espresso machine of your own.

You’ll need to prepare and understand in advance the challenges you’re going to face, as well as things like container size and preparation, the lighting situation and, of course, the watering.

A very important thing to understand with indoor gardening has proper drainage. Without proper drainage, your garden isn’t going to make it.

There are a few ways you can handle this. You can plant directly in a container that has drainage holes, or you can plant into one pot and place that pot into a tray or other container.

Another tip you may want to consider is to use a layer of marbles or pebbles on the bottom of the initial pot.

Why? McLellan states that this allows the water to drain without the plant sitting in water.

All you need for your containers is to make sure there is enough room for the plants to grow and that you have adequate drainage.

You can even use hanging baskets if that gives you more room or options for your indoor garden. A metal bucket, barrel or the standard pot all work fine.

Think about things like milk and bleach jugs (with the tops cut off), window boxes, even clothes baskets that you can line with plastic (don’t forget to punch your drainage holes)).

Now let’s talk about another crucial aspect that will help your indoor garden to thrive and that is lighting.

You clearly have two options here, a well-lit window or artificial lighting. Even a well-lit room may not be enough depending on where you live.

For example, if you are in the northeastern United States, you might have to supplement your well-lit room with artificial lighting.

This will also be dependent on what you are growing in your garden. Fruiting plants, like tomatoes, need lots of exposure to light, so even with a well-lit window, your tomatoes might do better with supplemental lighting.

If the seedlings of your plants are tall and spindly, chances are they aren’t getting enough light.

While leaf crops and root crops can handle some shade, most fruits and vegetables need at least five hours of direct sunlight and do better with almost double that amount.

Keep your lighting situation in mind when deciding what you want in your garden. You may very well need to buy lights.

While many people forget to water on a regular basis, it’s over-watering that is a big problem with an indoor garden. The plants in an indoor garden do not dry out as fast as they would if they were outdoors.

Always be sure to check each plant before watering again. By placing each type of plant in its container, you can better target its watering requirements as each plant is different in this regard. More explained here!

Finally, you need to worry about space requirements. This goes right back to the beginning of this article about planning. An indoor garden takes up a lot of space.

Be sure you understand the space you’ll need before you go and buy seeds and containers, etc.

Plan out your garden. Know what you are going to grow and understand the lighting, space and watering requirements of those particular plants.

If this is your first attempt at an indoor garden, start small with only a few plants.

Space restrictions and poor lighting have killed many an indoor garden. Make it easier on yourself with a small indoor garden to start.

To still get a lot out of your indoor garden while starting small, you might want to consider certain vegetables that don’t need as much space.

This includes such vegetables as carrots, radishes, and lettuce. You can also go with those that produce over time. This means tomatoes and peppers.

This will allow you to make the best use of space and containers.

Indoor Gardening is a fantastic way for people without a yard or the room outdoors, but still enjoy gardening and the taste of fresh fruits and vegetables.

I hope these indoor gardening tips help put you on track for your successful indoor garden.

Growing with a grow tent

A grow tent is a device that is used to provide a growing environment that is indoors, similar to a grow box. A grow box is usually more substantial in structure and more permanent. Here is a good example of an indoor grow tent. A tent like this can be a very effective way to grow your plants indoors if you are on a tighter budget, or you need the grow tent to be more mobile and easier to put together and take apart.

Where a grow box is made of more permanent materials such as rogue hydro aluminum and a stronger frame, a grow tent is made from canvas with a garden tower aluminum frame, and it has a reflective device inside to be sure that light is not lost on the plants.

Also included inside the grow tent would be a carbon filter and a high CFM fan to provide air circulation for fresh air to the plant. The grow tent structure allows lots of space for plants to grow with having to worry about them being crushed.

If you are thinking of establishing an indoor hydroponics system, a grow tent is an ideal solution. By utilizing its compact space, your plants can be placed inside, and you can customize the environment for your plants, such as the humidity, intensity of the light, the temperature, and the location of the grow tent.

The portability factor is a great advantage of a tent arrangement, because of the super lightweight materials from which grow tents are made. It is very easy to assemble and disassemble grow tents, and the contents can fit into a large to the medium sized duffle bag. Consequently, it is very easy to move around space until you find where you want to place it.

The great feature about the grow tents is that you can create the effect of a greenhouse, no matter where you decide to grow your plants. This extends your growing season, and will allow you to grow plants all year round, where if you live in a colder climate, you would be restricted per the outdoor weather. You can basically grow anything you want, even things you might never consider, like tea or coffee.

The customization factor is another great feature in grow tents, in that you can control the temperature and humidity levels for the type of plant you are growing. Some of the grow tents come with shelving so the plants can be moved closer or farther away from the light as the need may be.

The energy efficiency is very good in a setup like this because of the material that is reflective inside of the grow tent. This ensures the all of the light gets to the plant that it needs, and there is very little that is wasted. The temperature is much easier to control in the small space of grow tents like this, than it would be in a larger room, for example.

The grow tents that are manufactured today are very durable and are made from strong materials that last. The fabric is designed to stand the test of time.

As a handy environment for your hydroponic plants and any other plant for that matter, a grow tent arrangement like this is ideal for apartments, small spaces, or just about anywhere indoors.
