Who should use this build?
No matter what your legal plant limit is, this tent should be able to handle it. At 80” for the main grow chamber, height is not a problem, and just about any cultivar can be propagated successfully under this build. With a 630w 3100k CMH fixture, this room can be used for both vegetative and flowering stages.
Standard cannabis grow setup: $1,000
Total cost: $466
These autoflowering plants were trained to grow short and bushy
For example, these autoflowering plants are bushy and short because I trained them to grow in that shape (starting when they were just 3 weeks old). This bushy shape forces cannabis plants to grow many bud sites as opposed to just one main bud site at the top of the “Christmas tree”.
The hardest part of growing is choosing a good setup. Once you create a nice growing environment, nature will do a lot of the work for you.
