Most people interested in growing cannabis indoors have searched for grow tents for sale in South Africa. These products are very useful for keeping your setup contained, but which tent is the best for you?
Choosing the right tent is different for every person. You will need to consider how many plants you want to grow, how big you want to grow them, and the amount of space that you can commit to them.
Once you’ve made your decision, you can start filling your tents with some of the best cannabis seeds around.
How to Choose the Right Grow Tent
Choosing the right grow tent kit is all about knowing what you need. If you are only planning on growing one plant in your bedroom, you won’t need to buy the biggest tent on the market.
These are three things you should consider when choosing the best grow tent:
Before you can even start to consider what tent to buy, you need to look where you are going to put it. Get out your trusty tape measure and start crunching the numbers. You want an area that can fit your grow tent with at least 30cm available on all sides. The more space you have surrounding your tent, the better you can move around and manage your plants.
2. Number of Plants
Just because you have the space for a big tent, doesn’t mean you should buy one. The second most important decision is choosing how many plants you want to grow.
If you only plan on growing one or two plants, you can easily make due with a 1m x 1m or 0.8m x 0.8m tent. More plants than this and you should start getting a bigger tent. You don’t want your plants to be sitting on top of each other – they also need space to breathe!
3. Plant Size / Growth Phase
Although the length and width of grow tents in South Africa change, the height is also something to consider. Depending on the size of the plants you want to grow or their growth phase, you will either need a taller or a shorter tent. If you are only planning on using your tent for clones, seedlings, or small plants, you can save some space by opting for a shorter tent.

If you’re looking for an indoor grow tent, look no further. We have compiled a list of the best grow tents for sale. These can either come as standalone products or as a grow tent combo in South Africa. We will, however, be focusing only on the grow tents in this post.
1. Easy 1,2 Grow Tent by Marijuana SA
This is the perfect grow tent for beginners who want to learn how to grow dagga or those just wanting to grow between 2 – 4 full sized plants indoors. It is available in Marijuana SA’s hydroponics shop and comes with a high-quality steel frame, mylar reflective material, and industrial zippers that will prevent any light leaking.

This tent is 1.2m x 1.2m x 1.6m. The 1.6m height might be a bit short if you plan on growing taller strains, like those that are sativa dominant. For shorter, indica dominant strains you shouldn’t have a problem growing your plants from start to finish in this tent.
2. Easy 0,8 Grow Tent by Marijuana SA
If you don’t have enough space for a 1.2m tent, then you should consider the Easy 0,8 Grow Tents for sale in Cape Town and throughout South Africa. The tent is still a decent height of 1.6m, which is suitable for indica-dominant or other shorter strains. You can read more about the differences between indica and sativa plants here.

4. Easy Clone Tent by Marijuana SA
If you are planning on just growing clones, seedlings, or small veg plants, the Easy Clone Tent is a worthwhile choice.

Once your plants have reached a satisfactory size, it would be best to move them to a bigger grow tent or outdoors.Check Price
