Looking at the beauty in the world is the first step towards purifying your mind, body and soul. Being in the vicinity of nature relaxes our mind. With this fast growing world it has become highly impossible to even take a stroll in a park flushed with greeneries due to the enormous amount of workload and in the race to win. The next step towards being close to nature is developing a garden in our own homes. Gardening is an extremely dedicated art in growing plants. It requires lots of patience and perusals. But then with the growing population all around the world, it has now become difficult to put even a decent roof above your heads. All have jumped towards apartment culture because it’s the only sensible thing to adapt nowadays with the rising real estate market. It’s a luxury to have a house with garden nowadays. With the rising new inventions and technologies and the ability of mankind to modulate nature to his or her own terms, it is now possible to have our own garden even with the meager space available. The answer to this facility is a grow tent.

The Gift Of Indoor Gardening

This door to indoor gardening has paved way for more plants to be grown at their own nested home rather than outside. Normally a plant requires sunlight air and water for their growth. The sunlight gives away cyanobacteria which plasters the green colored pigment chlorophyll to the plants. The water and soil provides the nutrients to the plants for their growth. The quality of soil determines the nutritional value of the specified plant. This technique involves growing plants in a controlled environment. These make use of artificial light, sunlight or a combination of both. They can be grown with or without soil which is very cost efficient. Growing without incorporates the process of hydroponics and ‘aeroponics’.  Hydroponics involves growing plants in a nutrient rich mineral solution mostly water packed with additional nutrients. Mostly rock wool and coconut husk are used as nutrients substitute in indoors.

Assembly of Grow Tents

The grow tentsrequire a confined space in your home. This provides a satisfaction of having your own garden growing your own flowers and vegetables. These tents requires a controlled light supply, and an exhaust fan supply to control the temperature because artificial lights tend to give more heat than normally required for the growth of the plant.

The lightings are usually classified into three varieties namely the high density discharge lamps, compact fluorescent lamps and traditional fluorescent lamps. The high density discharge lamps employ sodium vapor lamps for luscious flowers growth. The compact fluorescent lamps are usually used for an even more compact structure of these tents. The other type is the traditional fluorescent lamp which just has the advantage of energy saving. Now the growing popularity of LED lights has given an interest of using these in the indoor plant cultivation technique. These LED lights for the starters have less power consumption and the long life of the products. They can go on without a break for years together. More importantly they have very low heat output which provides a viable condition for the plants growth. Proper gas exchange is required for their growth.  Since it is a closed environment, the exchange of equal amounts of intake carbon di oxide and oxygen plays an important role. Installing an exhaust for proper ventilation is the key point for all the effort taken. With all the necessary set up being done, the intelligence lies in the proper selection of plants to be grown. Grow tent are indeed a boon for plant lovers.
