How far apart to space LED grow lights?
Spacing your lights 4' apart will usually be a good benchmark to shoot for, but variances in wattage, size, and footprint will dictate what works best for you.
Do I need air intake in my grow tent?
Larger grow tents can benefit from using passive air intake as well but will require higher CFM exhaust fans. Air intake is only a part of the indoor growing equation. Many factors like grow tent size, grow lights, and inline fans contribute to creating the optimal growing environment.
Do you need CO2 in a grow tent?
CO2 is essential to growth and development of all plant life. The naturally occurring concentration of CO2 in the air is around 400ppm (parts-per-million). If you are growing outdoors, you will be limited in introducing additional CO2 to your plants.
Do I need a carbon filter for my grow tent?
The answer to that question is a resounding yes! Carbon filters are the best option for keeping the smell from your growing area out of your house and away from your neighbors. More importantly, they're the best way to make sure even the freshest air is used by your plants to grow.
How many lights should be in a grow tent?
Standard advice says you should aim for 32-50 watts per square foot of grow space. More like 25 watts if your grow space is a dedicated veg tent. So if you were working with a 3' x 3' space, you'd theoretically want an LED light with a power draw somewhere between 225 watts (vegetative) and 450 watts (flowering).
What size tent do I need for 4 plants?
4' x 4' Grow Tent - Perfect for the footprint of a 1000w HID or LED grow light (4-6 plants) 5' x 5' and 4' x 8' Grow Tents - Our most popular tent sizes (4-10 plants) 5' x 9' and 8' x 8' Grow Tent - Great for a spare bedroom, expect large harvests (9-16 plants)

How do you grow with LED lights?
LED LIGHTS DURING VEGETATION. Set your light to 18 hours per day and 6 hours of darkness. Some growers choose to grow with 20–24 hours of light to maximise vegetative growth. Monitor your plant's development; if all goes well, it should grow healthy, strong, and bushy.
