Growing marijuana in a grow tent

Grow tents are easy to use and practically set themselves up. Setting up a grow tent is as complicated as setting up a camping tent. They are portable as well. Move your tent anywhere you want and find the perfect spot for your plant.

Grow whenever you want!

The vents are mesh, which offers excellent ventilation while at the same time reducing the amount of light leaving the tent. The tent also comes with nylon belts, which are perfect for hanging your Pot for Pot grow lamp.

Lighting your Grow Tent

The Quictent Hydroponic grow tent comes with a tool kit, removable floor tray, duct vents, heavy-duty zippers, and windows for observation. They are available in different sizes.

Note: When you open the door of the tent it breaks this seal, which means smells may flood out the door or get pulled into the exhaust fan prematurely. To deal with smells when you open the tent, you can use a product called ONA gel, which is surprisingly effective at covering up odors on a short-term basis.

It’s important that there is an air-tight line from the carbon filter to the fan (without any air leaks) in order to prevent smells from escaping the tent!

Although some grower don’t use a carbon filter, they can unintentionally be making a trail that leads straight to their grow. Carbon filters ensure there are no smells whatsoever getting where they aren’t supposed to be in addition to providing peace of mind!

Just like the exhaust fan, I recommend hanging your carbon filter with rope ratchets because a carbon filter is surprisingly heavy and rope ratchets make it a lot easier to make adjustments!

You’re at the home stretch! Your grow tent should already be set up, and now it’s just a matter of double-checking everything and adding your plants!

How to Set Up a Grow Tent for Stealth

2.) Hang Grow Light

Pros of Growing Cannabis in a Grow Tent

Humidity is the amount of water vapor in the air. Here are some ways to control it in your marijuana grow room:

You will definitely want to invest in a timer for your lights. Because the amount of light a plant receives dictates its vegetative or flowering stage, it’s important to give it a consistent amount of light every day, and that’s done with a timer. It’s a good idea to check your timer at least once a week to make sure it’s working properly.

If you can’t afford both MH and HPS bulbs, start with HPS as they deliver more light per watt. Magnetic ballasts are cheaper than digital ballasts, but run hotter, are less efficient, and harder on your bulbs. Digital ballasts are generally a better option, but are more expensive. Beware of cheap digital ballasts, as they are often not well shielded and can create electromagnetic interference that will affect radio and WiFi signals.

Soil and other media for growing weed indoors

For small spaces or tents, clip-on fans can be attached to structures like walls, corners, or support beams. For larger grow rooms, use medium-sized oscillating fans or big floor models.

As much fun as growing marijuana indoors is, having a home that perpetually smells like fresh weed can be a serious inconvenience, if not to you than possibly your neighbors. Although weed odor from a small indoor grow in a closet is much easier to manage than a large grow with several flowering plants, both can produce pesky odors that will permeate an entire home if left unattended.

Timers/Automation

Carbon filters usually work best when positioned at the highest point in your grow space, where the most heat accumulates.

For growers who have a little extra money to spend and want full control over their indoor garden, environmental controllers will allow you to automate the process. These devices are essential for if you’re away from the garden for a long period of time.
