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.
