Complete Grow Tent Kits For Soil

We have all been there.  We’re trying to plant our vegetable gardens and putting seeds in the ground.  We do everything we can to protect them from fencing to keep out the critters to timing our sowing around the perfect weather and timeline, and for one reason or another the plants are just too weak to take root and grow the way we need them to.

What if there was an option to get a head start on your planting in a completely controlled environment?  What if you could spend the first couple of weeks growing your garden in a greenhouse type atmosphere without requiring an addition on your home or a separate building out back?  What if that environment was portable enough that you could move it around your home? Are you interested yet? We were, so we started looking at grow tents. A grow tent is a completely controlled environment for growth that provides the optimal temperatures and light to give your plants the jump start they need.

We’ve evaluated the top 5 complete grow tent kits and we’re going to take a look at the best ones as we move into the winter season.

iPower Hyrdoponic Mylar Grow Tent

Built to support heavier loads than some of its competitors, the iPower Hydroponic Mylar Grow Tent has the ability to support up to 110 lbs of weight from its frame.  While you may be thinking that you won’t need your tent to support that much weight, consider that many cheaper tents in the marketplace only support 60 lbs and that includes all of your lighting, fans, filters, and tools.  If the plants you are looking to grow require intense light or circulation it’s not terribly difficult to reach some of those higher weights.

One of the other features we like about iPower’s addition to our list is that it comes with a sealed window.  Heat and light loss are concerns especially with some of the more delicate plants you could be growing, and the transparent plastic window allows you to check on your plants without impacting its internal environment; and the reflective mylar interior ensures that between 92 and 97 percent if the energy in your tent gets reflected onto your plants and herbs; thus ensuring your electricity is being put to good use.

Growtent Garden Reflective 600D Mylar Grow Tent 

Growtent brings an entry to the table with their reflective 600D mylar grow tent.  One of the many things we enjoy about this model is the variety of available sizes.  With the ability to provide a tent to meet almost any growing need (or accommodate any home size), the largest size is 96”x48”x78” and sizes range all the way down to 32”x32”x63”.  

Completely sealed, the 600D reflective mylar tent material and all metal frame are designed to keep any odors from your plants from permeating into your home while also keeping any bugs or pests out of your growth chamber.  

Equipped with ventilation mesh, the Growtent allows for enough air circulation to keep your plants happy and healthy while being fine enough to prevent any of the aromas inside from escaping.  The mylar tent material is non flammable and wearproof, guaranteeing that this is an investment that will keep growing better and better every year.

iPower 48″ x 24″x 60″ Hyrdoponic Grow Tent Kit

iPower brings a second unit to our top five as they have taken the same basic science of their earlier unit and carried it over to a larger unit with some additional features that make it a little better on our list.  Granted we are now at a 4’x2’x5’ model that will take up some additional space in your home or garage, but with heavy duty zippers and double stitching, this model is 100% light proof. All of the light and energy you are keeping in your grow tent for your plants and herbs are virtually guaranteed to remain inside the tent and the reflective mylar will keep that energy on your plants and not in the fabric.
Equipped with easy assembly instructions and a one-year warranty, this iPower will keep you growing for ages.

iPower Water-Resistant Grow Tent

The third iPower grow tent on our countdown, this is by far the largest iPower available and provides you the greatest amount of growing space offered by iPower.  Like all of the other iPower units on this countdown, this unit comes with a non flammable, wear resistant mylar tent cover, but this unit also includes a water-resistant tray that comes out and rinses for easy cleaning of your tent space.  

Between the double layer ventilation ducts and the venting windows set near the bottom of the frame, the iPower water-resistant grow tent gives you the option of keeping your plants as warm or as cool as they need to be.

Hongruilite 2-in-1 Grow Tent

We love choices and options and the Hongruilite is the only reputable grow tent that gives you a two in one divided option to have multiple sets of plants/temperatures/etc going simultaneously.  The primary chamber is 24”x24” but comes with an additional chamber on the end that is 12”x24”.

With a relatively simple construction, thermostat, and the ability to hold up to 75 lbs in weight on the frame, the Hongruilite isn’t as heavy duty as many of the other tents on this list, but it more than makes up for that in versatility.

With a diamond mylar tent cover, the Hongruilite prevents light leaks while focusing the lights and energy on your plants, giving your herbs and other plants the optimal growing environment available.

Verdict

No matter your needs, the grow tents on this list are more than able to service you and your plants. We certainly do recommend the Hongruilite simply because it does provide the ability to grow multiple types of plants at different temperatures and lighting arrangements and is the only unit on the list with that capability while not sacrificing any of the positive features available on the other units.
