Look at horticulture lighting group and get yourself a quantum board
Yep, what he said.
Qb 135 kit is pretty ideal model for 2’x2’ tent. 36" model is going to kinda be pain in the butt though.
I am going to Echo what @dbrn32 mentioned about 36-inch height tent when you take into consideration the height of the pot The Rigging an hanging the lights not going to leave you a lot of room for plant growth. Good luck happy growing.
Thanks everybody do u guys think I will be ok for rite now with that tent I’m going to try to send it back but I always have so many problems with amazon
If you can, send it back and get a taller one.
Sorry for all the questions is this the rite one? an do I have to put it together? I’m not good with putting things together if I have to put it together or buy extra parts I will have to pass if not I will purchase this one if not what do you recommend for something that’s already put together
This is what they mean by rigging the light and then room for exhaust up top. This is a 2x4x8’ and I’m growing two plants.
You will have to assemble the tent but it’s super easy. A couple of metal poles that should be labeled with letters and the tent just gets put over the poles after assembly.
You’ll be much happier with a taller tent once you get the exhaust up top, it takes up a bunch of room depending on the size.
Sorry I meant do I have to put the lights together or do it Already come assembled kinda confused cuz some one said something about a board
Nice the tent I ordered didn’t realize how small it is
I’ll leave that for @dbrn32 to tell you for sure. I had to assemble my HLG light but mine was much larger. Still pretty easy with some basic tools and watching their online video.
So is height just the problem with the tent I ordered?
The width 24 x 24 you can grow one nice plant. The height it’s where the space gets tight. As far as assembling a tent very simple. Most lights come plug-in and Play. Don’t hesitate to ask questions lots of wonderful knowledgeable people here to help you.
Honestly, you can start a plant without a tent at all. Amazon shouldn’t be too difficult to return. Shoot for like 5’ tall, plenty tall enough for a 2x2. The light is a kit and need assembly. You can have growerslights assemble and test, but it costs a little more
Alot here dont speak highly of them but they are qb and seem to grow really well for me so far. A marshydro ts1000 would be perfect for a 2x2 tent. They are 150 bucks on amazon. They come with a 3 year warranty and seem to be a dang good light. Oh they come already assembled. Check them out. I will tag u in my journal.
Thanks greatly appreciated with it only being a 2x2 will I still need a ventilation system?
Yes, but all but the hose can be mounted outside the tent. I started in a 20 inch by 20 inch by 4 foot tall. Just make sure to train those plants
Thanks appreciate it
They have pre built hlg lights too like the 65w hlg and 100w. This is what I’m currently using. They are nice lights. I have two of each in my 3x3. The 65w is basically $100 and the 100w is $150. I can tag you and show you my grow if you would like. Also I like mars hydro. There purple lights served me well before I switched to hlg. Unfortunately they are all in the closet now until I decide to do something with them. @bellabstar
