4 Benefits of Grow Tents

Grow tents, also known as grow rooms, are portable tents that are typically made of canvas. The main feature, however, is the reflective material that lines the insides of the tent. This reflective lining helps increase the effectiveness of grow lights, allowing users to grow plants quickly and efficiently. Some grow tents also help improve other relevant factors in gardening such as humidity, temperature and air circulation.

If you’re thinking about growing produce, you should consider investing in a grow tent. To help you decide, we’re going to discuss four benefits of grow tents.

  1. You can grow plants all-year round

Some fruits and vegetables are only able to grow under certain conditions. A lot of berries, for example, cannot develop properly under extreme temperatures and therefore must be grown in a temperate environment. This means, if you live in an area that gets high and/or low temperatures, you likely won’t be able to grow certain berries.

With a grow tent, you won’t ever have to worry about the climate outside. Grow tents essentially allow you to create a separate ecosystem that has a different level of humidity, different temperature and different air quality. With this level of control, you will be able to cultivate climate-sensitive produce all throughout the year.

  1. Keeps pests out

The natural environment is often described as beautiful, calming and relaxing. While these descriptions are true, there’s also an ugly side to nature that we tend to forget. Those who grow their plants outdoors will know that pests can be difficult to deal with. Aphids, caterpillars, maggots and certain types of beetles are notorious for skeletonising leaves, feedings on roots and defoliating plants.

Since your grow tent will be placed under the roof of your home, you won’t have to worry about these pests ruining your produce. In addition, since grow tents provide sufficient protection from pests, you won’t need to rely on strong pesticides that might be harmful to our environment.

  1. Intensifies the light

Due to the reflective lining of the grow tent, the light inside will be able to bounce off the walls and spread around the interior. As a result of this, the plants inside will be exposed to a greater concentration of light. If you’re able to get the right type of lighting along with the correct temperature and humidity, you will be able to optimise your plants’ growing potential.

Because of the reflective lining of grow tents, they are typically more energy efficient than most indoor growers and smart gardens. In the long run, this alone can save you a significant amount of money.

  1. Quick set up

Hydroponic Supplies

Grow tents, like most modern tents, don’t require handyman skills to set up. Even if you haven’t seen one before, you’ll easily be able to assemble a grow tent and begin growing your plants in no time.

In addition, you can also set it up pretty much anywhere in your home. You can set it up in a closet, the corner of your bedroom or your living room. With grow tents, you don’t have to worry about building a separate structure outside of your home, getting building permits and hiring contractors.

When used properly, grow tents can be a great investment indeed. If you need advice about the different types of grow tents and how to achieve the perfect conditions for your produce, don’t hesitate to contact your local grow tent supplier. Most suppliers will also be able to give you advice regarding hydroponics supplies and equipment.
