There are many ways to set up a grow tent, and in this article, I will share some pictures of some of the most prominent tent configurations. Seeing these grow tent setup pictures may help you out along your journey of setting up your own.
Check out these grow tent setup pictures. This is a sweet setup – probably one of the coolest things you can do with grow tents. It’s got the flowering room in the right and the vegetation tent in the left. Together, they create a perpetual grow cycle which never ends. As soon as the flowering is done, the little plants go in next, and then the cycle repeats itself.
This cuts down on the actual flowering time by upwards of two months – from 4 to 2, or 4 and a half to 2 and a half. It’s a smart way to go about growing, if you can handle to care for all those plants at the same time, and set up the entire system.
As you can see from the grow tent setup pictures, one side has a high-pressure sodium bulb, and a LED panel. The other side has only an LED panel. The ventilation system is based in the flowering tent. That’s where the carbon filter must be located, because that’s where the smell comes from. Since this creates negative pressure, all you need to do is connect the two tents with ducting, so they share the pressure.
You can see in the left tent that the ducting comes through, and is places on the air conditioner, so that both tents also share the same conditioned air, with roughly a 50/50 spread. It’s a pretty ingenious way to go about it, quite a serious setup. Results in fat kolas, quick turnaround, and a lot of fun.
This one of the growing tent setup pictures demonstrates the gravity-fed watering system, and the ventilation. As you can see, from the top left, you got the carbon filter which is connected to the inlet of the inline blower fan, and that goes out the tent to be ventilated outside.
The growing tent setup pictures demonstrate a cool watering system that buddy built. He’s got a 10 liter jug which holds the feed, and all you have to do is turn the tap on to start the flow of water. It’s all gravity fed, so nothing really needs to be done but to let it rip. It’s a really cool system and really saves a lot of time when the canopy is thick. It gets really annoying to kneel down and water it from the ground.
Aside from that, you can see from these growing tent setup pictures that the LED panel is cooled by a dedicated fan. The purpose of this fan is multifold: it creates airflow in the mid-level of the tent, and also gets rid of the excess heat from the LED driver, which can get quite hot – especially next to a powerful HID.
There is a thermometer hanging from the top. Having it at the top is a good way to see the upper limit of how hot it is in the tent. Remember that heat rises, and so if you have the thermometer at the top, you get to have a good reading of the actual heat.
This is one of the growing tent setup pictures showcasing the outside. You can see that on the left, there is an air intake which is done through a simple princess auto 4” duct booster. It’s a pretty good solution for pumping fresh air into the room at all times. It gets rid of condensation, keeps the air circulating all over the room. The tube you can see stretching in to the top right of the picture is the one which comes from the inside of the tent. It is exhausted out of the other port, so you have an inlet and an outlet which creates a perfect circulation within the room.
An inlet might not be necessary for you depending on the room. Some people can get adequate air intake without the duct booster, but it was necessary in this instance because of condensation build-up. This is just one of the many growing tent setup pictures which illustrate only one possible configuration.
Well, I hope you enjoyed those grow tent setup pictures. This was the only setup I could really take pictures of which was not my own, so I’m sorry that I’m limited on images. If you have any pictures you would like featured, I could add them here at your discretion, and we could show the TentGrower audience a few more setups with your help.
Aside from that though, I hope you learned something through looking at these grow tent setup pictures. It’s not necessarily easy to set these things up, but it does come together slowly but surely. These pictures probably give you a good understanding of what makes a good, stealthy, clean, and functional grow tent setup. This is quite an intricate system, so don’t expect to just jump right into something like this.
Start with one tent, and then if you think that perpetual growing is for you, maybe try that out later. It takes a lot more coordination to get both those grow cycles lined up so that it makes your work profitable and worthwhile.
Thank you guys for reading this article, and take care – happy growing.
