Indoor grow tents are gaining in popularity with cannabis growers. This method is both easy to set up and quite a bit cheaper compared to creating entire indoor grow rooms. These tents are ideal for small time cultivation, as they only need (and only provide) a small amount of space. If this sounds like the method for you, here are the basic steps to follow when installing a grow tent:
Planning and Budgeting
First, decide on the location in which you are going to build the grow tents. It should be safe and secure from any environmental risks. Consider the size of tent you’ll need. Can you fit all of your plants inside a closet, or are you going to need more space? Keep in mind your budget also has to cover the equipment for indoor growing, as well as the installation of that equipment.
You need to have a long-term plan since plant cultivation lasts for months. It is important to be financially stable within this period as maintenance and energy consumption can take a toll on your budget. Likewise, forecasting specific risks and ways to address such things is important to consider when you are planning.
Installing the equipment and grow tent
After purchasing all the necessary equipment and tools needed, you are ready to start on building your grow tent. If possible, it is usually best to hire someone for the installation process rather than do it yourself to ensure quality and efficiency. If you decide to do the installation yourself, make sure you do your research and follow safety precautions. Here is a list of what you’ll typically need, though it changes depending on your location:
-Air conditioning or Cooling System
Evaluating the setup
To evaluate the efficiency of the grow tent, make sure that no odour, sound, or light can escape the grow tent when closed. Double check the wiring and equipment, then do a test run of the equipment before you set up your plants to ensure safety during the operation.
