Plants grown in an indoor environment need to be contained in either a speciﬁcally built ‘grow room’ or on a smaller scale a grow tent. Progrow has watched the development of grow tents from the start, still proudly supplying Budbox one of the original designers and manufacturers of grow tents in the U.K. A grow tent provides a quick solution to a sealed environment for your plants, we are then able to control that environment with the addition of lighting, ‘intake’ ventilation and extraction. All grow tents will have ‘ports’ or vents for intake and out-take ventilation as well as ports for cables and hoses. Progrow hydroponics supply grow tents from Pro-growroom, bud box, Secret Jardin, and darkroom from small propagation tents to 3.6m monsters!
All our grow tents are constructed around sturdy steel frames made to support your hydroponic equipment such as lighting and fans. The fabric ‘shell’ of a grow tent should be lightproof and provide reﬂection on the inside, either plain white or silver mylar coatings are used ensuring optimum use of your lighting. Many manufacturers provide entry to your tent from many sides making it easier to care for mature plants. Most grow tents are constructed of heavy cordura fabric, watch out for cheaper alternatives that will very soon degrade under the harsh conditions of an indoor grow environment. It is important for photo-sensistve and photo-periodic plants that your grow tent is lightproof, all Progrows grow tents provide the ideal environment for your plants. All our grow tents come with large ports for ventilation that will then seal around your ducting and cables with draw cords. Once the tent is sealed a ‘negative’ pressure can be established with your ventilation equipment to prevent unwanted grow room smells escaping. Progrow sell a wide variety of grow tents suitable for both amateur and professional indoor horticulturalists. Other than budget for your tent the ﬁrst considerations is its usage, and space you have to dedicate to your grow, remembering working room around your tent and space for ventilation. You should also consider the stage of growth of your plants and whether you need a tent for the propogation/vegetative stage as well as the ﬂowering stage. With this in mind we stock small purpose made propagation tents ideal for starting seedlings and cuttings in some cases providing enough room to perform some of the vegetative stage of the growing cycle. Some propagation tents such as the well thought out Pro-growroom PG120c provide sectioned off areas for seedlings, cuttings and an area for maintaining a mother plant. Most ranges of tents will tent start at around 1 meter square as this is the ideal size for a 600w hydroponic lighting system and be around 2 meters in height providing enough room for your plants to grow to maturity. From here tent sizes increase and the size you choose will largely be determined by the amount of lighting you intend to use for an intended yield or as previously mentioned the space you have to dedicate. All Progrow staff will be happy to help you choose the most suitable grow tent for your purpose and we can also supply most brands out there even those not listed on our site.
