Garage Gardens & Grow Tents

July 17, 2018

I have a couple of tall grow tents in my garage. The flowering tent has HPS lighting, and the vegetative tent uses CMH lighting. Large LED and fluorescent fixtures also work well in these tents. The grow tents are perfect for winter garage growing.

Two garage garden tents in winter. Tomatoes on the left growing under a warm-spectrum HPS lamp, and peppers, beans, and squash growing under a cool-spectrum CMH lamp on the right.

They are insulated, so the HID lamps keep them warm enough during the day and prevent plants from freezing at night.
