Grow Tent Heaters Review

Introduction to Grow Room Heater Systems

I always enjoy when winter shows up. Cold weather, ice and snow always bring happy childhood memories back to life. Unfortunately, my plants don’t feel the same way at all!

In fact, if you want the best growth and flowering conditions, temperature inside the box (more about the tents www.plantsily.com/grow-tent) should always be as follows:

  • lights-on cycle, between 70 and 80 degrees Fahrenheit
  • lights-off cycle, between 64 and 71 degrees Fahrenheit

So you better be ready for those heavy temperature drops!

There are various types of heaters you may use, but be advised using ceramic heaters may be harmful to your plants. The hot ventilated air they blow dries up the atmosphere resulting in a low humidity level, which can be unadapted during vegetative period especially for clones and seedlings. Moreover, they can cause damages and even burn whatever is placed directly next to the heating unit itself, or too close to it.

Most growers on a budget usually use oil filled heaters while professionals go for heaters fitted directly in the inlet ducting.
