CultiLab Grow Tents offer superb value for money with the inclusion of many features you’d normally find on more expensive tents like metal corner pieces, diamond pattern internal reflective surface and strong 16mm powder coated poles. Your grow tent contains your entire growing environment so it’s a crucial factor to consider when building your garden.
Both light Kits come complete with Ballast, bulb and reflector so you’ll be able to set it up and get it producing light right out of the box. Magnetic ballasts are a much heavier weight and less electrically efficient than digital ballasts. Digital ballasts are superior to magnetic ballasts, but they take a while to pay for themselves in terms of saved costs of electricity so If you plan on running your garden year-round they are the best option. If your kitting out a temporary space, magnetic ballasts might be a more financially beneficial solution due to the lower initial outlay. It’s good practice to mount your ballasts above waist level to prevent water entering the units.
Our large grow tent kit is supplied with a Greenpower 4-way relay contactor, which is a lot safer from an electrical standpoint than a normal timer when igniting more than 600w of HID lighting. You can safely power 4 x 600w lights from just two wall plugs with this timer.
RVK’s are German engineered and will last you for years of service – They really are work horses of the indoor grow room and will consistently and reliably perform as advertised. The only downside to RVK’s is that they can be a bit loud. Consider getting a Fan controller to run fans below 100% for quieter operation.
*Please note that across the industry RVK Fans are not supplied with a 3-pin plug if you do require a 3-pin plug please add it on the Optional Extras, or get yours here.
We appreciate that dealing with the smells that emanate from your grow room can be a top priority for our customers, so we haven’t skimped on the carbon filter. Phresh Filters consistently perform, scrubbing all volatile organic compounds from your air so only fresh smelling air will be exhausted outside the growing environment. You’ll be able to rest easy, safe in the knowledge the 8inch (200mm) filter can cope.
5 meters of ducting are supplied with the kit, so you can run your exhaust air away from your growing environment. This will refresh the stale, warm, Co2 depleted air in the tent providing the perfect air exchange to facilitate plant growth.
Jubilee clips are the simplest, most effective way of connecting your fan filter and ducting together; you’ll just need a screwdriver to tighten the fitting that clamps the ducting onto a spigot. Jubilee clips can be easily uninstalled and reused so they’re perfect for when you’re storing your set-up.

How to Use
Assembly of the tent is straightforward, just push the tent poles into the corner pieces following the enclosed instructions. you then pull the fabric/Mylar tent skin over the frame.
The Tent has support bars across the roof so you can easily hang the lights and ventilation from the top of the tent, using the ventilation socks in the tent to pass the ducting through the tent without any risk of light leaks. Use the Jubilee clip to ensure the tight fitting of ducting to ventilation components. Ventilation fans should be run 24/7 to provide a constant air exchange for your plants. You could use a fan controller to run the fan at a slower speed to reduce noise and mount the fan with bungee cords to further reduce vibrational noise.
*Please note that across the industry RVK Fans are not supplied with a UK plug or cable. If you do require a 3-pin plug & 3-core cable, please find it in the related products below, or get yours here.
To install the lights for use you should plug the lamp into the reflector, the reflector into the ballast and the ballast into a contactor. Make sure your ballast has some space around it as it can get very hot when in use. Ideally the ballast should not be put on the floor, as there is an increased chance of water entering the unit in the event of a water leak. The jack chain can be used to easily raise or lower the height of the light. Ideally the light should be as close to the plant without burning them, which, for a 600w is normally between 10" - 18" above the canopy. You can put your hand under the lamp at the height of the plants; If it’s too hot for your hand, it is likely too hot for the plants so you should consider raising the height of the light so you don't end up slowly cooking them.
This kit is supplied with a High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) bulb which is designed and manufactured for the flowering and fruiting phase. While it is possible to use a HPS bulb throughout the entire cycle, results may be improved with the simple addition of a metal halide (MH) bulb (sold separately) for the plant's vegetative phase. MH bulbs are interchangeable with HPS reflectors and ballasts if the wattages are matched.
Most plant species require a day length period of over 16hrs to vegetate and less than 12hr day length to start the onset of flowering and fruiting.
Please Note: In the event of stock shortages, alternative brands matching the same specification will be provided.
