Some people don’t have space indoors or in a garage for a grow tent. That is why they are looking for a grow tent kit that they can put outdoors. Think under a lapa or on a stoep, or something like that.

The good news is that as long as your grow tent is made of high-quality materials, you can easily find a safe spot for it outdoors. Especially in South Africa where we have the perfect weather conditions to grow cannabis.

Do you want to do a hydroponic grow or a pot grow?

For the beginner grower, I always suggest a potted grow, with good old fashioned pots and potting soil. If you are a more experienced grower you might op to grow with hydroponics. The good news is that any grow tent kit worth its salt will be able to take a hydro system or just pots filled with potting soil. Just don’t try to grow more plants that your grow tent has space for. If you have a single plant grow tent, make sure you hydro system or the potting system will not take up so much space in the tent that the plant itself has little space to grow.
