Grow tents and kits
Dear Cannagrowers! Welcome to the PEV Grow Growing tent and Greenhouses section!
What is a marijuana growing tent?
A marijuana growing tent is a space for indoor cannabis growing.
The first core units of these components emerged in the United States, as a result of active law enforcement persecution. To this we owe a whole industry of growing cabinets, greenhouses, anti-odour filters, units for climate control, ozone generators, lighting kits, etc....
And it is that... clandestinity has been creating new needs in the cannagrowers...
These easy-to-install and transport-friendly growing spaces also offer a number of other technical advantages, such as the ability to control and obtain the ideal climate for the development of cannabis plants, pest inflow control and the control unwanted odours.
Types of growing tent
Today we have a wide range of cultivation cabinets, which can be differentiated by size, sophistication and price.
The most basic and economic ones are made up of lightweight frames, with reflective tarpaulins, adjustable extraction inlets and non-functional ventilation grilles, not including anti-odour filters, extractors, ventilation or lighting kits, all of them are accessories that you can choose for yourself, having a wide catalogue for each of them, with different qualities and prices.
The installation of the growing space is up to you... but you know you can ask us anything you want!
We always advise you to have cabinets that are easy to assemble (although nowadays almost all of them are), light in weight, and above all that they can be assembled with each other, so that you can connect and expand cultivation spaces.
Major brands such as Cultibox already have models on the market that allow assembly with other cabinets. They are a very versatile range of cabinets.
Other brands highly appreciated by you for indoor growing are Secret Jardin (Dark Room) and Homebox Classic; Products that cover all your needs, with a multitude of air outlet options, flexible doors so that you can access the plants from various angles, and the smallest details to help you carry out a perfect cannacrop.
Characteristics of the Growing Marijuana Cabinets
We have created this comparative table where you can see the main technical features of the cabinets that you will find in the PEV Grow catalogue.
You should consider fundamentally the space you have available, and also the maximum amount of space you are going to need. In that case we advise you to acquire an assembly model, with walls equipped with Velcro for the adhesion of more cabinets.
If we focus on the best value for money we offer you a comparison of the cabinets as follows:
|Model||Permits Add Cabinet||Side Opened||Maximum Size (cm)||Minimum Size (cm)|
|Dark Room II||No||One side||300 x 300 x 200||60 x 60 x 160|
|Mammoth Intense||No||One side||600 x 300 x 240||240 x 240 x 215|
|Cultibox Light||No||One side||120 x 120 x 200||60 x 60 x 140|
|Dark Street II||No||One side||150 x 150 x 200||60 x 60 x 140|
Basic recommendations for indoor crops in cabinets
Feminized photo-dependent marijuana plants need 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness for the growth phase. If they are auto-flowering (non-photo-dependent) strains, the plants grow and bloom at 20 hours of light per day.
For the flowering phase, non-photo-dependent feminized strains need 12 hours of light and 12 hours of absolute darkness.
If you decide to incorporate high pressure sodium lamps (HPS) you should be careful to place it at the right distance from the plants. The correct distance is between 60 and 40 cm, depending on whether it is a 600 W or 400 W spotlight. Place your hand on the apical tip of the plant to check the heat of the spotlight. If you don't burn, neither does the plant.
We recommend that the extraction always be switched on while the spotlights are lit. In darkness, the extraction should be turned on every 15 minutes. And we do not recommend turning off the fan.
The temperature of the crop should be between 18 and 24ºC. It should never exceed 28ºC, nor lower than 15ºC.
To control the humidity and temperature of your crop you will need a digital thermohygrometer. The ideal humidity in the growth phase is over 60%, allowing foliar pulverizations that raise the indoor humidity, to enhance the development of the vegetal mass. On the contrary, in flowering stage, the humidity should not exceed 50%. In flowering the buds should be fattened dry.
What is the maximum number of plants you can grow in the cabinet?
Well, it depends.
The important thing is that you cover all the cropping space to get the maximum yield.
If you intend to develop the newly germinated seedlings or the newly rooted cuttings indoors and then take them out into an outdoor garden, we advise you to cover the entire space with 3 litre pots.
A plant, a flowerpot...simply, no more.
If you are going to take your plants to the end of the cycle in the cabinet, we advise you to use the following cabinet sizes to cover the space completely with vegetable mass.
These data are indicative, since the height of a sativa strain will not be the same as that of an indica cultivar. There may also be differences between certain autoflowering and feminized cutivars.
For a 60 x 60 x 120 cm cabinet: we advise you to crop 5 plants in 5.5 litre (18x18 cm) pots.
For a 100 x 100 x 200 cm cabinet: we advise you to crop 14 plants in 7 litre (20x20 cm) pots.
For a 240 x 120 x 200 cm cabinet: we advise you to crop 25 plants in 11 litre (23x23 cm) pots.
Assembling a standard culture cabinet is very easy
Just take out the bars and corners that make up the structure, the canvas, and tidy it all up on the floor, or on another surface.
First of all, we put together the cabinet structure. To do this, we join bars and corners forming a square to form a base, then form the sides of the cabinet, and finally, the square of the upper part to obtain the complete structure.
Once we have the structural frame, we'll put the tarp on.
The part of the tarpaulin where the holes of the ventilation and extraction inlets/outlets are located shall be placed at the top of our structure.
The order of fixing the tarp is similar to that used during the assembly of the structure, i. e. the tarp is first fitted at the bottom, then at the sides, and finally at the top.
As you can see it is very simple!.... I'm sure you even have fun assembling it!!
Do not hesitate to call us if you get stuck with something, our technical team will attend you and solve your doubts in the best way possible!
