The light intensity/wattage of the grow lights will vary depending on tent size to create an optimal lighting footprint and promote maximum plant growth.

HID (HPS/MH) Grow Tent Packages

What beginner doesn’t want to use the lights that most professional use?

Unfortunately, many new to gardening are put off by growing with HID grow lights because of the extra components needed just to use the lights. On top of that, they then have to worry about setting up a great ventilation system to combat all the heat the lights generate.

Once you figure out everything you need to set them up it’s smooth sailing. That’s why our grow tent kits figure it all out for you, so all beginner can grow like the pros.

HID grow tent kits can be broken down into single ended (SE) and double ended (DE). This is a variation in HID lighting, and there are a few things you should know.

SE grow lights are great for beginners, produce less heat, and feature a standard Edison type bulb screw in. DE bulbs attach at both ends of the fixture, produce more heat, but generate way more powerful light. If you have the space and are capable of combating heat, a DE grow tent kit will outperform an SE counterpart.

The majority of our HID grow tent kits come with both HPS and MH lamps. This will give you the best light spectrum for all growing stages. For those on a budget, we offer smaller size tents that come with a HPS lamp, which is the recommend HID lamp to use for all growing stages if you can only afford one type.

HID Grow Tent Packages include:

LED Grow Tent Packages

The future is here.

LEDs are taking home grower's grow rooms by storm and have their eyes set on commercial operations next.

Unlike their HID counterparts, LED lights don’t need anywhere near the same amount of components to run. The problem beginners have with LED lighting systems is learning all the science behind them that’s needed to get them growing plants at maximum efficiently

Figuring out the best LED lights for light spectrum, PAR, etc. is often too much to learn at first, so we made sure to choose LED panels that give gardeners an LED grow light that works great for all growing stages, and is fitted for the grow tent giving growers the best lighting footprint.

LED grow tent kits include:

  • Grow Light - LED panel, light hangers, and a dual outlet light timer.
  • Ventilation - Inline exhaust fan, carbon exhaust filter, fan speed controller, clip-on circulation fan, ducting with clamps, and a thermo-hygrometer.
  • Grow Method - Trellis netting, trimming shears, and your choice between a soil or hydroponic setup.

Make sure to check out our multi-chamber tents that come with an additional CFL grow light for the smaller propagation chamber.

CMH or LEC Grow Tent Packages

Ceramic metal halide grow lights are one of those lighting systems that pays for itself after some time. When they do, you have a wonderful lighting system in place.

The high set up cost and unfamiliarity can care new growers. That’s why we designed our kits to perfectly fit your needs.

Unlike HID lights, with CMH's you won’t struggle with heat, nor will you have to replace the bulbs anywhere near as often.

Ceramic lights are brilliant for beginners as they offer a huge advantage that most other grow lights simply do not. They don’t color your plants when the lights are on them, and this makes judging plant health and spotting issues incredibly easy.

CMH & LEC Grow Tent Packages include:

  • Grow light - CMH or LEC grow light fixture, light hangers, and a dual outlet light timer.
  • Ventilation - Inline exhaust fan, carbon exhaust filter, fan speed controller, clip-on circulation fan, ducting with clamps, and a thermo-hygrometer.
  • Grow methods - Trellis netting, trimming shears, and your choice between a soil or hydroponic setup.

Fluorescent Grow Tent packages

Fluorescent grow lights are a very popular choice for growing plants during their vegetative and seedling stage. The T5 fluorescent fixture offers a brilliant light spectrum for vegging plants. These are also incredibly efficient, and avoid stressing the plants with heat and light.

Our fluorescent grow tent kits offer a simple setup to start your indoor grow off on the right foot. Fluorescent lighting features longer lasting bulbs that provide a lot of light without running up your electric bill.

With these tents we wanted to keep it clean and simple, that’s why we only offer soil pots and saucers for our fluorescent tent packages.

Make sure to check out our multi-camber tents that come with an additional CFL grow light for the smaller propagation chamber.

Fluorescent Grow Tent Packages include:

  • Grow light - T5 fixture, light hangers, and a dual outlet light timer.
  • Ventilation - Duct fans or exhaust fan & filter, fan speed controller, clip-on circulation fan, ducting with clamps, and a thermo-hygrometer.
  • Grow methods - Trellis netting, trimming shears, nursery pots, and plastic saucers.
