    COMPLETE 400 watt GROW TENT System
    High Tech Garden Supply

    is this a good choice? only looking to grow 6-10 plants in soil, will this suffice? havent seen many people using these grow tents, kinda skeptical about buying. any feedback?

    big waste of money.
    just get a hps and an old closet, fit 2 fans and save lots of money.

    you could even make one of them tents, from a frame and panda film. stick it asll together with sticky back velcro.
    but id just get a light from ebay. and use an old closet to start.
    you may find, after you buy the tent, growing isnt for you.
    or the tent isnt big enuf.
    just start out with the basics, untill you start throwing money around.
    to start to only need 2 42watt flos, for 1st 4 week vegg.
    in that time you could set up a grow closet.

    never indoor, only some outdoor stuff that planted and neglected, let nature do its thing only to turn out bad. planning on anywhere from 6 to 10 maybe even a dozen plants at a time, not tryin for commercial, just a headstash that i can critique each grow.

    yeh you might aswell make your own out of a old wardrobe!it'll be cheaper and much stronger!ive heard those grow tents are very weak and flimsy.

    cloest pics.
    total cost £70 for lite. and i already had an old closet and fan.
    and £22 for 2 strip 42 watt flo's for seedling and first few week vegg.
    i like to have 2 areas so i always have plants in vegg. just in case.
    i top them to keep there size down, but they have thicker stems and more heads.

    very nice.. 2 areas is ideal but for now i think i can only pull off one. so is the 400watt too much power for what i have planned, not enough or work just fine?

    yeh that set ups very cheap!ive never used floros for seedlings and vegging!always mh from start to finish of vegging then a hps for flowering.floros for the first week or so is a little safer i suppose.

    a 400 watter is ok for a 3x3 space which is 9 square feet so yes that light will be fine!

    you know ive attempted building my own, and sketched out plans that thought would take up least amount of space like the tent, and cant seem to find the right fit for my room. tent is expensive, but if im making the investment to start growin myself instead of buying ounces every week might as well go for it!

    i have a similar plan because that set is both mh and hps so was thinkin veggin with mh then flowering with hps like you said... does that seem to work alright?

    an old wardrobe will last you years, and doesnt look as shady as one of them grow tents.
    i have my closets,in the garage. at night, thats when i do my dark period, so if anyone comes snooping around, all they see is a closet. and then id set the dogs an the bastard.lol
