New Light Just Came In Yesterday!! Need Advise On Tents??

Discussion in 'Suggestions & Feedback' started by BamaBushes32, Feb 9, 2019.

  1. viparspectra 600w. My big plant is 5 weeks old today and is booming and I’m using new light just for it! the 2 other smaller plants are 5days younger and they get the Mars300 I was using on the other plant! What are the best tents? I want to put both lights and all 3 plants in a tent but don’t want to take up half the closet space. What size do I need??

    You’re constraint by having to fit in half the closet will affect your potential harvest, that said what size do you envision would fit?
     
  3. My closet is 8 1/2 x 7 1/2 feet. So I want 36x36x60 tent but I think 24x36x60 would fit better in there but I need more than 2 feet width in my opinion? The box it is in now is 18inches width and the plant is only 5 weeks old and you can see in pics that it doesn’t have a lot more to grow out in that box so that why I think 2 feet won’t be enough space. What do y’all think??

    Your plant will expand into the tent, and subsequently adapt to it. I’ve got a 18”x36”x60” right now with a single sativa that’s doing ok for me with a four Cree cob set up. Any tent will allow you more utility and a means to exhaust and filter out odors with an internal/ externally mounted charcoal filter fan combo.

    My advice is to buy the biggest you can fit an afford. It’ll be too small but you’ll be happy you didn’t go smaller.

  8. I have a full basement but where I from the temps are chainring drastically every day so it’s harder to control the climate down there. In the summer it will be easier.
    thats what I figured. If I go to Small I will retret it. Thanks guys you all helped

    I'm running my eight hundred watt cob set ups from 9 PM to 9 AM, that takes care of the chill at night and has kept my grow area between 70-80 degrees F.

  10. Serious question here. I thought about do that but my 2 smaller plants seem to know when it’s morning and night time? Is that normal? Like in the morning before lights come on they are perky and around 8-9 at night they start to droop??

    Pretty sure they’ll adapt, check my pics, except for wanting some water in one shot, no droopy plants...9PM to 9AM
     
  12. It really depends on how you want to harvest. A single tent is easier but after harvest you are starting from scratch. 1 small tent for veg and 1 at least double for flower and run a perpetual grow harvesting more often. But taking large clones is a lot easier and cheaper than getting beans and germinating. Just my 2 cents.

  13. I agree that you need 2 seperate tents. I figured I would use my homemade box for veg and tent for flower. I don’t know how to clone but I would like to try it this time. my plant 37 days old (5 weeks)

  14. Depending on how many you have in veg pick the best/strongest to take your clones. Try to take them two weeks before flipping just to make sure they take and to give it time to recover. Less stressful for her.

    Bigger/more holes in those buckets, you'll risk root problems without more air access and drainage...imho. Think air pots (https://www.google.com/aclk?sa=L&ai...hUKEwjR_86XsLTgAhW9CTQIHajRCYwQ9aACCDU&adurl=) here's a good example to strive for.

    With a sacrificial grow bag, a pair of scissors and a glue gun, you can glue fabric patches over the holes to block out light into the holes. After this grow the patches can be relocated inside the pots.
