The Differences Between Grow Tents and Grow Cabinets

Both grow tents and grow cabinets provide the perfect growing conditions for plant indoors. They are both ideal for beginner growers who want to keep their indoor garden small. Although both can successfully grow healthy plants, one has features that the other doesn’t, and these will matter when it comes to your gardening needs. So if you are looking to grow indoor plants and wondering which one to get then, you’ve landed on the right article. This week, we will discuss the differences between grow tents and grow cabinets to help you decide which one to get.

Size and portability

The sizes of most grow tents are flexible; you can choose to make it bigger or higher by using extension kits that come with it. These tents are also made is so many sizes, all you have to do is choose the one that fits the available space you have at home. You can easily move them around as well when needed. Grow cabinets, on the other hand, have a fixed size and are not portable. So if you do not plan on moving around your grow space, you can go with a grow cabinet. However, if you plan on expanding your garden in the future, it’s best to go with a grow tent.

Assembly

A grow tent tends to get set up longer than a grow cabinet. The latter is pre-assembled, usually already has everything in it and all you need to do is just plug it in and start growing. Grow tents require effort and time as you will be installing everything, from the LED grow lights, to the fans and filters. If you do not want to go through the hassle of installation, go with the cabinet. However, if you have the time and would love to customize your grow space, the tent is the ideal one to get.

Durability

It is pretty apparent that when it comes to durability, the grow cabinet wins. Unless you are buying the high-quality tents, you won’t be worrying about wear and tear and busted zippers. So be prepared to invest in high-quality tents if you prefer them over the cabinets. The latter is made of a sturdy combination of steel and wood, just like the typical cabinet in your bedroom. Because of the materials it is made of, grow cabinets tend to be more expensive than grow tents.

Security

Grow cabinets are also perfect if you plan to be a discreet grower. These cabinets give privacy, and could easily pass as ordinary furniture in your living room or bedroom. Grow tents, on the other hand, are not too easy to hide from visitors. So if you regularly have people coming over and you don’t want them to know about your indoor garden, then it’s best to go with a grow cabinet.

Qualities of the Best Grow Tent

Grow tents revolutionized indoor gardening. They give so many benefits to growers including privacy, best conditions for growth, and more yields. Grow tents allow indoor gardeners to grow peacefully, without worrying about unpredictable weather or pests. That said, grow tents are becoming increasingly popular nowadays. You can find many of these tents on the market, but not all can deliver. That is why you should be picky when it comes to purchasing them. To help you get the best one in the market, we listed down the top qualities of the best and most effective grow tent that can give you the best yields.

It should be made of high-quality materials.

Intense 3.0 INT480

You should check the material of the tent itself. It should be strong, dependable, and durable. There are different grades of materials so always go for the tent that it thick, so it sure is going to be light tight. Thick canvas material won’t be easily chewed on by pesky insects and bugs as well. Don’t forget to check the zippers and seams as well; they should not leak light. The zipper must be of high-quality, you don’t want zippers that always jam or breaks easily.

It should have a reflective inside material.

Gorilla Grow Tents diamond reflective interior

The inside of the tent should be of reflective material. It could be silver tone or white so they can reflect the light coming from your LED grow lights back to the plants. Without this lining, lighting won’t be distributed evenly to your crops. Gorilla Grow Tents use diamond reflection technology which allows them to produce more effective growing conditions.

It should be accessible.

Secret Jardin Dark Room 2.6 DR120

The zippered doors of the tent should allow the grower to easily access the inside. The more access doors, the better. Some have view windows that allow growers to easily monitor all the plants without actually opening the whole unit. A 360-degree wrap around access will also make it easier for growers to maintain the plants.

It should come with adequate ports.

Secret Jardin Dark Room 3.0 DR240

Plants will need proper ventilation so the tent should have ports for exhaust and intake ports at the top and near the bottom area. There should also be ports for cables and electricity. Aside from the number of ports, they should also be perfectly placed.

It should be sturdy.

Gorilla Grow Tent Interlocking Metal Frame

The frame needs to be sturdy enough to hold the heavy canvas material. The bars should be made of steel, as they are the strongest and most reliable frame. It’s also best to get ones with interlocking metal frames and connectors so they won’t go wobbly and worse, crash on you and your plants.

It should be expandable. 

Gorilla Grow Tent Extension Kit

Some plants grow tall, so you’ll need a tent that’s expandable. Some tents today offer extension kits that can expand your unit up to two feet taller. The best ones are the sturdy adjustable poles like that from Gorilla Grow Tents. Plus, a higher roof also allows large plants to yield bigger numbers of fruits and also allows the heat to rise up away from the plants.

Growing Your Vegetable Supply Indoors 

Growing Your Vegetable Supply Indoors 

Never have to leave home again to buy fresh vegetables.

Growing Your Vegetable Supply Indoors 

Whether you are a serious home cook or a chef by profession, nothing is better than picking out fresh greens a few feet away from the kitchen. Those who have big backyards certainly do not have any problems growing, but it should not be a problem for those who live in the cities too. The solution here, of course, is indoor farming, Thanks to LED technology and hydroponics, growing greens, herbs, and fruits indoors is possible.

If you are planning to set up an indoor vegetable garden, then you stumbled upon the right article. Here are some basic points you need to know about growing your vegetable supply indoors for your cooking needs.

Pick the best location for your grow tent or grow cabinet.

Deluxe 3.0 LED Soil Grow Cabinet

Check the measurements of your chosen area to make sure your grow tent or grow cabinet can fit. Gorilla Grow Tents, for example, have sizes that range from 2 x 2.5 to 10 x 20. Grow cabinets, on the other hand, can range from a slim 15 x 24 to as big as 92 x 24. The area should also be as accessible to water and power, and should not be carpeted. The flooring should also be easily swept clean in case of messy accidents.

Pick the containers for your seeds, as well as growing medium.

Led Grow Lights for Grow Cabinet

Most grow cabinets already come with a hydroponic system, so you don’t have to worry about buying containers and growing medium. But if you’re going with grow tents, you might want to consider getting shallow containers with good drainage. As for the soil, choose a mix for seed starting, and not garden potting soil.

Install your lighting and ventilation systems.

SuperLocker 3.0 LED Grow Lights Cabinet

The most recommended lighting system to use for indoor gardening is LED grow lights. It’s a great investment because they can give the perfect lighting for growing your crops. These lights also allow for faster and higher quality yields. On the other hand, proper airflow and circulation are also necessary to successfully grow your greens. A small oscillating fan will do but this, of course, depends on the area size of your grow tent or cabinet.

Start planting!

Indoor Vegetable Gardening With The Help of Led Grow Lights Cabinet

Once everything is set up, it’s time to start planting! Grow cabinets have everything automated, and you can even leave your crops up to a week. Always check for signs of sprouts. When they appear, thin the seedlings with a pair of scissors and keep them about an inch apart.

Monitor the growth.

Monitoring Your Led Grow Lights Cabinet For Your Vegetable's Growth

Pay attention to the growth of your plants, especially those greens that may be more delicate than the others. Always check the color of the leaves; if they become yellow, that means they lack water and nutrients. Always check the moisture level as well so as not to drown your plants.

Also, installing your LED grow lights is not a chore; you’ll just have to set up the holders, attach the hood, and organize the wiring.

Efficient use of space.

Grow tents are a blessing to people who live in the city. They would not need a big area to turn into an indoor garden because these tents consume minimal spaces. Their space-saving properties also make efficient use of water and light.

Control of pests.

Gorilla Grow Tent Lite Line

Indoor gardening is not 100% safe from predators such as flies, aphids, and spider mites. But because these tents are fully-enclosed, the chances of insects invading your grow space are minimal. Grow tents are designed to safeguard your plants from any bugs, and if your plants do get them, it’s much easier to remove these pests.

Eliminates bad odors.

You won’t have to worry about your home smelling like soil that may annoy people you share your home with. Because grow tents have an enclosed design, bad odors get trapped inside. The air purification system filters the air and eliminates the smell. Also, carbon filters supply carbon dioxide to your plants.
