I got a Vivosun Pro 2x4 tent about a month ago. I am now seeing a few light leaks in the stitching. I've tried black gel nail polish to seal them and it is working but after several coats. Anyone have a better suggestion?

I have a Vivosun 3x3. Same problem. The leaks are pretty tiny and I chose to ignore it. Have flowered in it half a dozen times with no problems. As long as your genetics are solid, really minimal leaks like that should not cause you problems. For light leaks generally, I like wide black gorilla tape.

I have a humidifier with an Led display running at night inside my flowering tent and nothing happens

Just let them be my advice
Wont hurt anything
Its only if you havd constant direct light onto your plants it will be a problem

Nice name btw😝

I'd love to not worry about the leaks but it's driving me nuts. Plus, my last batch had one produce nanners. I'd love to avoid that if possible.


Here you are letting a display light reflect in your tent and I'm over here taping off the red switch on my 6 way power strip!😝


Great minds think alike when it comes to picking a username. 😍

It's aggravating after watching hours of review videos to find out once you get the product it leaks light. I just picked up some Gorilla fabric glue. Gonna trying gluing the inner zipper flap down over the green seem.

I've read warnings about LEDs inside tents causing revegging, so I pass them on, even though I've not had a problem. I suspect it could happen if conditions were right.

Do you have your tent in a place where there's light outside the tent when the tent lights are off?
For the most part no. The room the tent is in is a pass thru room going our bedroom. Hardly ever a light on unless I am trimming late at night. 😊 I don't like seeing the light leaks when I pass by the tent. Drives me nuts! 🤪

Well... Light leaking out of the tent isn't a problem, AFAIK. There shouldn't be much light leaking into the tent if it's in a dark place.

The Nanners could be so many things
Stress in general
i doubt that its the light leaks
Often caused by light stress, over fert, gentics, or simply harvesting too late


next time your tent is empty try going into it have someone seal it and see if you can see any light penetration from the inside

I really doubt it would happen unless you have a grow light as a ceiling lamp😂🤟

Have a greath day hope i helped😄🤟
