2. Temperature & Humidity Meter

Knowing the temperature and humidity of you're growing area is important in maintaining proper environmental conditions that are needed by your plants.

This will help you prevent mold from growing and other unwanted problems that could be easily avoidable if you know the humidity and temperature.

With knowing the right conditions you can ensure you're plants will reach their full potential, which will reward you with a heavy harvest.

3. Trimming Scissors

These really come in handy when trimming flowers during their vegetative life cycle, and of course, work really well when harvesting you're fruits and vegetables.

But overall for the average grower, these are really helpful and make the growing and harvesting process a lot easier.

4. Grow Tents

Grow tents allow you to fully control the environmental conditions of you're growing area for your plants.

Having a grow tent can greatly benefit your plants by always maintaining the proper environment best for your plants.

Always research what environment you're plants are best suited for in order to achieve the maximum harvest.

5. PH Kit

A PH Kit is a must-have when watering your plants. Not watering your plants with the proper PH level can decrease the growth and even kill the plant.

Always make sure you are watering your plants with the right PH level to ensure healthy plants and to maximize your harvest.

6. Water Catchers

Having a water catcher under your pots is a must-have when watering your plants indoors. This will help prevent unwanted accidental drips when watering your plants.

If you are using hard pots water will just drip right to the bottom whereas with fabric pots the water will most of the time drip out of the sides.

Having a water catcher will collect the excess water and prevent it from dripping onto the floor. Which overall just makes growing a lot more convenient.

7. Grow Tent Net

Having a net will keep your plant canopy even and will ultimately help with providing maximum light penetration.

Plants for example like tomatoes, green beans, and peas will all benefit from having a net in place as it keeps the fruit up and helps increase yields.

8. Carbon Filter

Having a carbon filter is a must-have when growing in a tent, as it filters out stale air and just ultimately gives way for fresh air.

This can help reduce the amount of humidity in a growing area which can prevent mold from growing onto plants like microgreens.

9. Ventilation Fan

This product is a must-have with a carbon filter, as this is what pushes the air through the carbon filter. which will help with ventilating and filtering the air.

This product works whether you're using a grow room or tent. It can give you more control over the humidity and temperature in you're growing area.

10. PH Pen Tester

Like I said earlier, knowing the correct PH to water your plants is very important in keeping your plants happy and healthy.

This device makes checking the PH level of you're water so much easier. No longer will you ever have to guess whether it's at the correct PH or not.

The Bluelap PH Pen is the most accurate pen I have tested and although it's pricey, it's definitely worth it in the long term.


Growing you're own food indoors becomes a lot easier when you have the right tools and resources. These products have really helped me become a better grower and I'm sure they will do the same for you.
