1. 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.

Always make sure you are watering your plants with the right PH level to ensure healthy plants and to maximize your harvest.
3. 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, cannabis, and peas will all benefit from having a net in place as it keeps the bud up and helps increase yields.
4. 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.
5. LED Grow Lights
LED grow lights are one of the most if not the most important tool needed in order to grow food in a tent.
LED grow light strips can be used for small fruits, vegetables, and herbs. The big LED grow lights on the other hand are for larger plants like cannabis.
6. Trimming Scissors

If you're a cannabis grower, these are a must-have when harvesting your flower. Using ordinary scissors will not make your bud look top shelf.
But overall for the average grower, these are really helpful and make the growing and harvesting process a lot easier.
7. 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.
8. 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.

Growing in a tent requires certain equipment to be properly operational, these products will overall improve you're growing ability and will ultimately help you in the long term.
