The Grow Tent is SSL
Grow tents are stuff stoners like because they’re perfect for growing weed on the sly. Let’s face it. When it comes down to growing weed you have only a few choices. You could harness the power of the sun and grow weed in the great outdoors. Because nothing beats natural sunlight as well as not having to pay huge electricity bills. You could also grow weed indoors. But that takes up space. So unless you’ve got some extra space like a garage, basement or bedroom, maybe even a large closet you’re going to need another solution. That’s where an indoor grow tent comes in handy, man. If you’re looking for a grow tent, check out our updated Grow Tent Buyers Guide for 2016.

Gorilla grow tent products, like many other grow tent makers, come with grow light kits that are made specially for their products. This makes it nice because they’re basically plug and play. Luckily, most of these components are interchangeable however, so you can swap our parts if something breaks. We use a little Hortilux 100 watt hps grow light including hood and ballast, from an old grow tent setup we had back in the day, to light an empty spot in our current grow room. We had some empty space and it came in handy. We were able to flower another plant.
