I moved from my closet to a 4x4 tent, a little more room. Still growing Satori and The Purps. I have a OG Kush started that will make it's way in there eventually.

Thanks Lefthand, the light is a Mars2 900 ( 450 actual watts ) made by LG.
Yes it is a Solahut tent, it is a nice strong tent, I do have a couple problems with it though. One zipper the fabric on the back does not quite overlap in one spot so you can see a bit of light there. the other thing is the stitching you can see some leakage. First tent I have owned so I don't know what other's are like.

Best of luck with the grow.
I've got a 2x4 Secret Jardin tent, it's very good quality. Light tight and excellent zippers.

Sweet deal.
I have the exact tent lol. Very nice frame. Tent lacks in some quality but I only paid 170 with shipping so can't complain.
I've got 2 SJ tents. The older shorter version is better quality but the new style ones are ok too.
Have owning a few brands along with china. My next tent will be a gorilla hands down best on market at the moment.

Thanks Cubby, I don't know why they don't check these things, easily could have made it light proof, a diy to do .
Lefthand, strength was my main concern because my light is not light, this tent is strong. I also saw a video of someone complaining about the Gorrilla tent, it has the same leakage at the seams that I described on the Solahut, so I don't know if the Gorilla tent is better, just taller.

I hear ya.
I had to return my 2nd sj tent cuz of bs. The others one ain't much better but was cheaper then the first one. Lol.
$$ has stopped me from getting a gorilla n trying this one. I like the adjustable part n zippers are much better
Grow shop near me sells em n sj now. N I got to look one over up n down there pimp as far as pimp can be.
IMO there will always be those whom complain bout shet.
But sola hut gets a 7/10 due to tent itself not framing.
Sj 9/10 though I still find there old design better.
Gorilla on my chechinz n light tight 8.5-9/10 my rating may drop after I get one but I honestly from what I saw n got to try with it feel it's built better then the new sj's
I took a black rubber glue n ran down all seams n rubbed off the excess to fill in stitching holes

Good idea Lefthand, black glue for stitching holes. I was going to use the aluminum ducting tape along the seams behind the poles, that would make it fairly light tight but plants don't have eyes so unless there is a beam of light shining on the plants I think it is ok.

MR1
You have flowered under HPS before (I assume)
Do you have any thoughts/comments on LED vs HPS now?
I have -0- HPS experience.

Justa420Friend, I like my led lights, I think they work just as good for me as my 430w hps lights. With the led lights my plants look a little more frosty than with hps, definately not less. I am also saving on nutes, plants eat way less I find as PJ has mentioned, no bulbs to replace ( hopefully ) and of course less heat for summer grows. My light is the 5 watt Mars2 900 ( 450 actual w ), so I can't speak for the other lights.
I wish you well with your led's 4u, yeah I like to mix the pics up a bit.
