Light emitting diode (LED) technology has been around for a while, and they are getting more efficient all the time. The main drawback to LED grow lights is their cost: well-designed fixtures can cost 10 times what a comparable HID setup would.
As much fun as growing marijuana indoors is, having a home that perpetually smells like fresh weed can be a serious inconvenience, if not to you than possibly your neighbors. Although weed odor from a small indoor grow in a closet is much easier to manage than a large grow with several flowering plants, both can produce pesky odors that will permeate an entire home if left unattended.
Fluorescent grow lights
Soil is the most traditional medium for growing marijuana indoors, as well as the most forgiving, making it a good choice for first-time growers. Any high-quality potting soil will work, as long as it doesn’t contain artificial extended release fertilizer—like Miracle Gro—which is unsuitable for growing good cannabis.
Odor control in your indoor marijuana grow
Inexpensive options include standard plastic pots or cloth bags, while some growers choose to spend more on “smart pots” or “air pots”—containers designed to enhance airflow to the plant’s root zone.

First thing to consider is the type of grow light you want to use. The main grow lights commonly used are metal halide lights, high pressure sodium lights and LED lights. Full spectrum grow LEDs have improved drastically over the past few years so we recommend picking those. LED lights have a higher price up front but will save you lots of money in electricity. They also do not heat up as much, which is important to think about when setting up ventilation.
As mentioned above, most often you only get the tent, all other equipment is sold separately. That means you get the frame and cover to create a tent. You will have a lot of decisions to make about how you will outfit your tent.
You will want to shop around and find a fan that isn’t too loud to keep running in your home. While you could use a cheap basic fan from the thrift store, theres a good chance it will be much noisier than a higher quality fan.
How to set up a grow tent
Growing cannabis indoors can be a frustrating and difficult process. But if you’re an avid cannabis consumer then you’ve probably realized that growing your own bud can save you a lot of money and you can enjoy higher quality flower. It is also more rewarding to grow your own!
The next decision is how you will ventilate the tent and keep the smells contained. The ventilation system will depend on the size of your grow tent and the ventilation already in your home. It is best if you can set up your tent near a window, so you can have exhaust pipes run out the window. If not, you can always have the air get pushed back inside your home. This is why a carbon filter is very important, as we presume you don’t want your backyard or home to have a strong cannabis odour.
Where and how do you buy a grow tent?
Because of the size and appearance of this large square black tent, most people will keep their grow tents in the basement or somewhere out of sight. They aren’t considered the most attractive addition to your home. The size of your tent will determine how many plants you can grow, with most holding approximately 2-8 plants.
If you’ve done you research then you know that growing high quality, high yielding cannabis is not easy. Getting top quality results requires the proper lighting, nutrients and water conditions. Finding these optimal conditions can be difficult and extremely time consuming to maintain.
