How to set up your Indoor Growing Tent

So let’s get into why you’re here for, easy steps to set up your indoor growing tent easily 🙂 

Step 1 – Making the Bottom Frames

So the first thing you’re going to want to do is connect 4 of the 8 aluminium tubes that will compose the bottom frames.
You can identify them since they’re the only ones that have identical endings on both sides. 

In order to make the base, place these aluminium tubes within the plastics corners that are provided.

Estimated time needed: 5 Minutes

Step 2 – Place the Base Into the Tent

Once your top and bottom sections are done, you’ll want to get one of them into the tent to form the base.

This is a pretty simple step, all you need to do in open the tent and place the aluminium square in there. 

Once the base is in place you can start to place the vertical tubes, but don’t install them all yet!
Just install the ones in the back on the tent in the following way:

  • Back left : Place both vertical tubes
  • Back right: Place only 1 of the 2 tubes

Step 3 – Placing First Aluminium Bars in the tent

Place the plastic corner on top of the tube and and bring the tent over the corner. Repeat this with the back right corner

Once these 2 vertical tubes are installed, make sur the tent is over them and place a base tube between them in order make the connection.

Place the first 2 bars into the tent

Step 4 – Placing the Final Aluminium Bars in Top Frame

Now that the back section is in place we’re going to work our way forward.
You can start on either side and all you need to do is repeat the instructions of the previous, just make sure you connect the sides before the entrance bar (full disclosure, we haven’t fully place that last top bar)

Couple words about the grower

This article was written by Plant Lover, Free the Tree's founder and a passionate grower of Cannabis, as well as all other plants.
Mostly from the city, I work on my computer all day so about 4 years ago, on my off time, I started growing to have some more green in my life.

I never imagined I would fall in love with botany and discover so much about this plant. Since then I keep learning everyday, meeting new awesome people of our community and grow constantly
