One of the most essential pieces of equipment you’ll need to garden indoors is a grow tent. There are many of these on the market, including different makes, models, sizes, and materials. However, buying one will require an investment as well as time to research the different options. If you’d rather put some elbow grease into creating your own indoor gardening space, it’s possible to make your own grow tent with a few simple supplies. Use the guide below to learn all you need for getting started with this type of tent.
1. Build the Frame
The frame is the first thing you’ll need to build, so pick up PVC piping that measures the dimensions you want your tent in particular to be. You’ll also need to buy connectors where the piping can fit together to create the shape of the actual tent. These supplies can easily be found at a home improvement store. Once you have these, building the tent is as easy as pushing the piping into the connectors until it’s secured. To help improve sturdiness, you can wrap duct tape around the connectors where they meet with the piping.
