8 plants under 315 LEC in 2’x4’x5′ grow tent – Harvested 497.23 g (17.5 oz or over a pound!) of quality bud
I like grow tents for growing cannabis because…
These grow tents support grow lights like:
Example Plants Grown in This Size Tent
Looking to grow a few ounces to a pound of weed indoors? Then this article is for you! Since you’re here, I imagine you’re thinking about setting up a new grow space. I’ve grown in a bunch of different places in various homes, and I wanted to share my experience with you.
These are great choices, but instead of growing plants in the open air, I think most people growing for personal use would be happiest with a mid-size tent. This size tent accommodates many popular grow lights and can grow up to about a pound of cannabis per harvest (a mid-size grow tent has dimensions of 2’x4′ or 3’x3′ with a height of 5′-6′).
These 7 plants were grown in a 2’x4’x6′ grow tent with a 315 LEC grow light and yielded a total of 384.76g (13.57 oz)
Same size tent with a 250W HPS produced a plant that yielded 6.2 oz at harvest
As long as you keep the tent closed and the fan on, you should never be able to smell cannabis in your home or outside. The negative air pressure caused by the sealed tent prevents any air inside the tent from leaking out.
It can be tempting to try to get a really expensive grow tent with all the “bells and whistles” because you want to give your plants the best possible home! But honestly the cheapest grow tent has 90% of the features of a far more expensive grow tent. If you’ve never grown marijuana before and are reluctant to invest a lot of money, I recommend starting cheap when it comes to tents!
If you’re trying to create a growing environment from scratch, you may have to do some DIY which can feel overwhelming if you’re just getting a grasp on growing. Utilizing a grow tent takes care of a bunch of environmental factors in one fell swoop.
4.) Connect Carbon Filter – No Smells!
When it comes to grow tents two of the most common sizes (in the US) for hobbyist growers are the 2’x4′ and 4’x4′ tents. These are also made to fit the most common grow lights.
When all is said and done, a stealth cabinet with fans on the inside (even one done very professionally so it’s completely light proof) is only marginally more stealthy than a black grow tent with a zipper down the middle. When it comes to stealth, don’t expect any grow tent or cabinet to be stealthy enough for someone to be hanging out in your room without noticing the fact that it’s emitting light/noise/heat. Instead, you’re looking for something that can fool someone who is quickly passing by it for a moment or two.

If you’ve seen the examples and want to keep it simple and get a grow tent, here’s more information on how they quickly create the perfect environment for your growing marijuana plants!
No matter how you end up doing it, the main idea is to ensure any air leaving the tent must first pass through this carbon filter.
