hello people,
just got my first grow tent,
the brand is called COVERT ,
its pretty awesome,
was a pain in the butt to set up,
but with some help I finally got my new { grow environment } going,
can't wait to see how this will go.

p.s. sorry about the weird camera angles?
not sure why phone does that.

Congrats. If I don't end up building a cheap $300 greenhouse this year I may get a grow tent set up.

I'm kind of interested to see how those lights will work. They're the hardware store Feit electric 2 foot lights right? I looked at the numbers last time I was there and they seemed kind of low: lm=600 PAR=22
Curious to see how well CP's will grow under them.

yea those are the same lights,
also have a nice one in there from PETSMART,
light variety seems to help with the overall plant growth :)

hi , so overall NO it wasn't to hard to set up,
but my issue was that the tent was almost to tall for
the ceiling , had set it up from the inside out ,lol
but it has been one of my best investments ever :)
