4×4 Grow Tent Setup Guide

4×4 Grow Tents Review And Setup

Choosing the right grow tent should definitely be one of your priorities when planning your project. The right size will help your plants get enough light and grow in the best possible conditions. 4 x 4 is the best size for medium projects as the area will be perfectly illuminated by a 600w HID lamp which has shown to produce almost as much lumen per watt as the 1000w while having a much lower heat output, enabling you to get it closer to plants tops and thus being one of the most efficient lights on the market. Remember that picking the best 4×4 grow room setup is essential for a long lasting product, delivering efficient results for years to come.
