Although modular grow tents have long been available in Europe, many North American growers may be surprised to learn that you don’t have get stuck with cookie-cutter sizes and shapes when selecting a tent. Think of all the extra square footage of yields lost to irregular shapes in buildings, having to work around columns or other obstructions when setting up a grow tent. What about tight spaces — ever try to set up an 8-by-8-foot North American-style grow tent in a 10-by-10-foot space? Here’s an example of a modular grow tent that uses individual panels rather than entire preset covering sizes. Going modular, you can construct a tent in just about any shape to suit your needs. No tools required.


1. Site Preparation: Once insulated and secure, the growing area is swept to avoid punctures in the waterproof flooring.



2. The Goods: Within these tidy, nondescript boxes is what will amount to a 4-foot-wide, 12-foot-long, 7 1/2-foot-tall waterproof and light-tight growing enclosure.


3. Customize: After watching the instructional DVD, the layout of openings and ventilation is decided.


4. The Skins: Covers can be exchanged between solid, ventilated and ones with openings so they are exactly where you need them for your room type and layout.


5. Structural Members & Connections: These are the steel supports that provide a rigid and sturdy frame for the covering and support the grow lights, CO2 monitors and whatever other grow gear you decide to utilize.


6. Frame Construction: Simple, quick and easy. The poles couple together and slide into the skins to create the separate panels.


7. Ready to Connect: Working in tight spaces, arrange the panels in the order that you are going to assemble them.


8. Get it Together: Using the connectors, the individual panels connect together. All this can be accomplished by one person.


9. Cornering: Using the panels, any shape or configuration can be made, provided enough materials are on hand. This package is a rectangular kit, although almost any shape or configuration is possible.


10. FreeStanding: All the walls are up, but not yet fully enclosed. This is a good time to measure and plan the internal layout for your grow system.


11. Strutting: The ceiling struts are locked into place. These will support the weight of a carbon filter and air-cooled lamp reflectors. The waterproof flooring is also secured to the frame.


12. Finish: The ceiling coverings are secured together and attached to the frame, making for a light and moisture-tight seal, successfully creating an ideal growing enclosure in a limited space.
