Grow tent packages for beginners

From Integral Hydroponics:

The key to successful hydroponic gardening is understanding how a plant produces food and grows.

The manufacture of food for either a seedling or a cutting starts within the leaf structure of the plant. Chlorophyll, the substance that gives plants their green colour, converts carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air, water (containing nutrients), and light energy into carbohydrates and oxygen (02). This process is called Photosynthesis.

Hydroponics is the method or science in which you can supply all the essential elements to this complex system, along with natural sunlight and/or artificial lighting.

Where to start?

At Glandore Hydroponics, we’ve tried to take all the guess work out of the equation for you. We have a range of tent packages available that contain a majority of the items you’ll need to get started. Prices start from $1,000 for the Grow Tent – Full Auto Kit and range up to “The Producer” package which starts at $2,150. Of course, each of our tent packages can be customised to suit your needs; Need a bigger tent? No worries. Need more wattage? No problem!

So what’s included?

Our tent packages obviously include a grow tent, typically the Seahawk mylar tent (starting at the 1m x 1m x 2m size). The package also contains the pots, fittings, mediums, nutrient tub, timers for lights and feed, thermometer/hygrometer, PH and EC meters, air and water pumps, fan, filter & ducting; basically everything you need to run 2 x 30Ltr pots with a 400W (or 600W) hps light. However, one thing that we leave up to you is plant nutrition.
