Making your own DIY homemade grow tent is pretty difficult while buying a complete indoor grow tent setup that’s ready to be put together in a few minutes is about… let’s see… six jillion times easier. If that sounds good, read on. Because that’s what this review is all about! Modern grow tents are high-quality and make your plant growing setup more efficient than ever with reflective interiors and lots of vents and ports for easy cable and duct management. To help you find the perfect product, we’ve tested the top grow tents on the market as well as some lesser-known “diamonds in the rough.” The result is the grow tent reviews below. Before we jump in, here’s what you need to know when buying.
Dimensions: Measured in feet, this spec shows you the size of the tent. Tents range from as small as 2x2 feet to 4x8 feet or more. Your requirements are unique, so pick the tent size that makes the most sense for you.
Light-Proof: This shows you how well the tent prevents light leaks from getting in. They are the pinhole sizes holes that you want to prevent. Indoor grow tents with high light-proofing are better, so look for a high rating.
Reflection: Also shown as a percentage, this spec describes how reflective the interior of the growing tent is thanks to materials like Mylar. Higher is better. This helps conserve energy for traditional and hydro setups.
Metal Frame: An indoor grow tent with a full metal frame will be solidly built and able to withstand heavy hanging LED lamps and plenty of use. We’ll let you know if the frame is metal or some other material.
Tear Proof: Another spec that indicates a tent’s durability, being tear-proof or tear resistant means you don’t have to tiptoe around your indoor grow tent. We also list specific fabric materials where available.
Heavy-Duty Zippers: Nobody wants a flimsy grow tent, and a broken zipper can really ruin any grower’s day. So we made sure to mark whether each grow tent has heavy-duty zippers designed to stand the test of time or not.
At the top of our review list are our recommended top pick and budget pick, if you want to make a quick decision. But we also tested other products from top grow tent brands like Gorilla so it might be worthwhile to compare them all.
