Hello friends! I have never grown indoor hydroponics before and I am thinking getting a 4 feet tall (about 121cm) grow tent called “Yield Machine MAX” to grown a plant or two of my favorite of all: Blue Dream. I’m a little nervous but it comes with all the lights and equipment so for a newbie like me hopefully I will be able to figure it out.
So my first question is: I read that Blue Dreams are said to grow pretty tall, will the plants adjust/fit in that box?
And the second question is if anyone knows that brand of box and recommends it?
Thanks and have a great weekend
I had one of those boxes, honestly I would rather have a tent. You can lst and top you’re plant to help with height but it’s going to be jammed. My main problem is it didn’t block the smell which was a huge headache. If I ever had another one I would only grow small auto plants in it. If you get it for a decent price that’s good but I wouldn’t spend a whole lot on it if I were you.
Buy everything separate. You’ll save money and those boxes are junk really. Get a 3x3x6 tent for $50 off Amazon then your lights carbon filter inline fan, they sell those together with everything you neef
Thank you guys, I’m so lost and the box was the easy route but with your recommendations I might be able to make something realistic
I’m glad I asked about the height too! So what do you all think of this:
TopoLite Grow Tent Room Complete Kit Hydroponic Growing System LED 600W Grow Light + 6" Carbon Filter Combo + 36"X36"X72" Dark Room (LED600W+36"X36"X72"+6" Filter Combo)
Keep in mind EVERYTHING except the auto’s will grow 2 times taller once you go to flower. And, the light hanging down will take up head room as well. Reducing the available height. Watching them grow is great, until they grow so tall they touch the lights with the sweetest growing spot on the plant.
Most rooms are 10’ tall. A 7’ or 8’ tent will work ok. Controlling the heat is a major factor…if too hot the plants will stretch big time. I strongly suggest you go with auto’s as the light schedule won’t be a factor. Plus you will have a harvest sooner. Several auto’s have a super big central cola and few side branches n leaves. This works well for small spaces. You can buy the 4’x4’x72" for just a few more dollars…if you have the space to take it.
***get a PH n PPM meter set…Amazon or Ebay have bunches at around $20. Asking for major trouble if you don’t keep control of PH…
Woww you are all so helpful, thanks a bunch!! Boardsbird I love the picture! I DO have space, the only thing that was keeping me down to a small box was the price. I am finally decided on the 4x4x8 tent to give the plant plenty of space to grow. I already ordered the blue dream fem seeds, I don’t think they are auto but i dont mind doing the switch, (still have not received them and getting set up). Hornhead For the LED should I go 600W or 1200w? And, hum… type of hydrosystem? Great question! The easiest one let’s say? (Nb:I heard you thinking “Ohhh… boy…”)
You’ll probably want to go with a 5gal dwc bucket with an air pump. I have my WWA in a 3.5 gal bucket. I use Mars Hydro lights with pretty good success. The 300w is only $67.99 on amazon with 132 true watts. The relandro light is only $70 which is not bad either. I’m currently vegging three plants with one 300w Mars Hydro. This pic is from eight days ago they are much bigger now. Do you know what nutrient line you are going to use? @Bluedreams
When I get to flower I will need stronger lights but they are going to be seperated in there own tents by then. This tent is 2x2.5 so I would need another 300w to get decent Sq ft. If I were to flower in it. One of my 3x3 tents have 2 600w Mars hydro and one has a 720w and a 300w. Check out my journal.
