@HaydenG / Anyone
If I wanted a 1 plant tent to replace a grobo I would buy this for $109 Canada you can’t go wrong… You could really get some great yield out of a tent this size…
Fan with Carbon filter
Tent = 109
Exhaust Fan with Carbon filter = 205 (having a second for intake isn’t a bad idea)
Deep Water Culture setup like grobo = 55 (Wouldn’t be my choice)
Hanger for light = 12
circulation fan = 25
Light = ??
Total = $406 Canadian (325 us funds about)
I didn’t price shop any of this above
What is Missing
- Ec / Ph meter
- The light this is a hard one to price because you can spend as low as $100.00 up to $600 (guessing on this one)
- Your choice of nutes
I think that is all that is missing for a basic tent setup
For $325 us plus a light you will have a very good 1 plant system…
I would never get a tent this small but that is just me… The nice part about this setup is all parts can be used in a bigger tent so no money lost… Just upgrade the size of tent… Example you can run a 3 by 3 for the same money a month but have 2 plants or 3 (I would do 2)
Light in this setup I would get 250 to 350 watt HPS cost should be around $250…
I feel HPS are better growing lights than LED.
LED are more $$$ upfront but cheaper to run
I should add you can pretty much get a tent any size you want…
You can also get a 2 x 2 x 4 if you don’t want to get one 6.5 feet tall…
Wow thank you very much Mpower I was thinking of going soil just do not know all about I would like to talk to you in a message about soil and if you just add water to the soil or when you start adding nute water!
Let me know what your question is
How do you grow with soil as far as additives and nutrients go?
That is a loaded question there is so many ways you can do this… There is pro’s and con’s with everything…
Personally I’m growing 100% organic if it’s synthetic I don’t use it
Living organic soil (supersoil)
Ro Water with Cal/mag added
I top dress Gaia Green products
all purposes, bloom and worm castings
I add Boogie Brix in flower… Fish Shit to help keep my soil alive
I know this sounds hard but really it’s easy…
I don’t mix any nutes… I don’t check Ec… I don’t Ph my water…
I want to add there is nothing wrong going with synthetic products it’s just not what i’m interested in…
The good news is you have a mix of people here that do it different ways for example…
Fire uses DWC with synthetic (like grobo)
Vic uses Coco with synthetic nutes
That’s amazing. I may start a closet sometime. Thank s for sharing
Thank you very much Mpower that sounds awesome well see when the time is right I do not want to jump the gun on the tent as I really only want and need one plant at a time at harvest. thank you sir!
Been looking @ the:
AC Infinity Cloudlab 632 Advance Grow Tent 2000D Diamond Mylar Canvas 36" X 20" X 62"
With a decent DWC or Drip Feed System
But with LST & Feminized could 2 plants fit in the 2x2
Space is a premium & Local Authority !!..
i recommend a minimum 2’x2’ area for one full grown plant to be taken to flower…i had a 16"x16" tent and it was extremely tight for one plant…i have a vivosun 20"x36"x63" tent and it works great for two plants but gets very tight when i add the humidifier
I second that… 1 plant for a 2 by 2 also you will get alot more bud from a 2 by 2 vs the Grobo…
Could you fit 2 plants in a 2 by 2 the answer is yes but I wouldn’t do it…
In my 8 by 4 the most plants I ever had in there was 5 but I have crazy amounts of gear in my tent also…
Maybe it’s time to take a few pictures of my setup…
@Gmann9116 My only comment on this tent is I prefer the canvas to be 1680D Canvas Reflective
