Choose your grow tent in person to check that the frame is robust enough to carry your lights and that the canopy is well made and the zipper is easy to use and well sewn in.
Consider using two tents one for propagation and one to transfer to, or use one tent for plants that need less light and one for plants that need more.
Choose a good spot for your tent. It will need access to water and power. Although most tents catch water overspill you may want to avoid carpet or hardwood.
Ensure you have enough light to adequately cover the plants you are growing. It might be a good idea to know what is happening in your tent when you are not watching. High low temps and humidity gauges are good things to know.
Consider venting your tent. Air movement is critical and a vent can also evacuate excess moisture. Good ventilation will also ensure your tent doesn't get too hot.

Hydroponic gardening may seem intimidating but is actually really simple: it's literally just growing without soil. There are a number of different methods to grow hydroponically, but one of the best is with a recirculating system.
The Root Farm™ Hydro Garden System is a water-based, recirculating growing device that continuously pumps nutrient solution to your plants. You control the growing environment so it's easier to give your plants exactly what they need to thrive.
The first step to growing with the Root Farm™ Hydro Garden System is starting your seeds or cuttings. Once they're big enough and you can see roots growing outside of the plugs, pellets or tray they're ready to be transplanted.
The Root Farm Hydro Garden System is easy to use and takes the guess work and measuring out of the equation when using Root Farm fertilizers and nutrients.

Most people think that growing hydroponically means growing in water. Although water-based growing is one hydro method, you can also grow hydro using a felt pot, growing mix, and liquid nutrients. Using a hydro growing mix is usually easier for beginners, because it acts as a buffer against nutrient mishaps.
To get started, you'll need a Root Farm™ Felt Garden Pot. Felt pots are great for hydro gardening, because they are made of a breathable material which allows for better aeration and drainage than traditional pots.
Root Farm™ Felt Garden Pots come in two sizes to fit a wide range of plants. Our small felt pot is great for growing smaller plants like oregano or lettuce. In the larger pots, you can grow medium plants like peppers or a few small plants like Swiss chard. You could also grow larger plants that need a little more space, like tomatoes or hydrangeas.
