What Lights to Use in a 60cm x 60cm Grow Tent?
There is a massive choice of lighting you can use in a 60cm grow tent. To deliver enough light to you plants you will need lighting with sufficient output. CFL’s and T5’s can be used for vegetative growth.
The best lights to use in a 60cm Grow tent is a 250w HID lighting kit. Using a T5 Fluorescent light in the early days of seedlings and cuttings will reduce electricity costs.
Buying a HID lighting kit, is the most popular way to provide good lighting to your plants. It has a massive output of lumens per watt, and for the best yields, most growers will grow using HID lighting. They use more power than other forms of grow lighting, but if you want big flowers, HPS is the light to use.
Finding the right LED light is not easy. There are many to choose from, and they all have different spectrums, and massively different price ranges.
A 300w LED is enough for a 60cm x 60cm grow tent. If you buy from know brands you are sure to get a good light.
Extraction is key to bringing fresh clean air into your grow room, and remove old air, moisture and heat. The lowest size extractor that would suit a 60cm grow tent is a “4 inch inline extractor fan”.
Extractor fans can be noisey, and sometimes it is better to buy the bigger size up, and a speed adjuster to slow the fans down. That way, it will run quieter, but still pull out enough air to keep the environment of the grow room in check.
How many Plants Can I Grow In a 60cm Grow Tent?
When growing cannabis for personal use, it is always good to keep plant numbers low. By increase the amount of time a plant is vegging for, you can increase the yield of a plant massively. Just by adding and extra week veg time, can double a final yield!
Growing one good size plant is the best way to grow cannabis in a 60cm grow tent. 2 plants is the maximum you should do. Any more than this, and your plants will suffer due to lack of space during the flowering cycle.
Growing auto flowering cannabis plants under 24 hours of light is perfect for a new grower in a 60cm grow tent!
Just like any other grow setup, you will need a good hygrometer, and some good fans for air circulation. It is important even in such a small space, to keep your air moving, and humidity and temperatures at ideal levels.
This is just about everything you need to start your grow! You just have to decide:
- What medium you would like to grow in
- The food you will feed your plant.
- What strain you would like to grow

For my 60X60 setup I have the following g and it works amazingly.
AC infinity tent.
4inch inline fan
2 small clip on fans .
And that’s it. A 60×60 basically runs itself as Bubblehok eluded to. 🙂
Hope it helps and good luck 🙂
@absolutebeginner smaller tents like a 60x60cm I find easier to set up, it’s the 4ftx8ft tent that I have to drag the fabric over the frame and struggle with for ten minutes that are more a problem for me. If you set up your poles inside the base of the fabric it makes it 100 times easier to manoeuvre the rest of the fabric onto the frame 🙂
Is there any tent in particular that is recommended? Some online reviews suggest that smaller tents can be awkward to assemble?
I grow in a 5 foot tall [1.6m) space and decided to mount my extraction and filter externally to the tent to get that extra height available. It’s not as tidy looking but the space is definitely worth it to me.
+1 this advice, vertical space means alot when you have a smaller overall footprint, once you get your exhaust in and your lights hung you lose almost 2 feet straight out the gate.
@absolutebeginner just wanted to add that in a 60 x 60 there are 2 different heights available from different manufacturers. One is 1.2m tall and the other is 1.6m tall (4 and 5 foot tall). Go for the 1.6 meter (5 feet) tall tent if possible, that extra foot in height is EXTREMELY valuable and you definitely won’t regret having that extra height.
you wont need nuits for a while mate, the nuits will be in the soil. Start of in small pots and transplant as they get bigger and itll be 4-5 weeks before you really need to add any nuits, just water will be fine in most cases.
Thanks, bit confused about monitoring temperature, that whole process. Would be growing one autoflower plant in soil. Not sure about nutrients either or how often to water? Sadly would be growing in small bedroom but with no facility for vent to go out of a window. Neighbours would notice.
Am getting there but still have holes in my understanding and knowledge of the whole process.
pH meter will depend on what medium youre growing in. Soil, you might be able to do withoutit, hydro, you need one, hygrometers is a must too really so you can monitor temps
Better to vent away from the grow, outside is best. Other wise youre just recycling the air and the plants like fresh air
Great, any preferences for fan and filters, or are they pretty generic? I take it pH monitors and hygrometers are only needed for larger grows? Friends who have grown have never used them. One last thing, the inline fan is to pull the old, humid air out of the tent via the filter to eradicate the smell and ideally out of a window but just back into the indoor room is acceptable?
the TS1000 is for the price and space combination the best – there are a few lights that are more efficient
air out / filter should be ( 0,6×0,6x H ) x3 = m³/min x60 = m³/hr
~Pretty much mate yer…. a MArs Hydro, Gorilla, Secret Jardin, anything will do for a 60cm tent man. 4 Inch extraction with 4 inch carbon filter and youre all good to go 🙂
Does anyone have a recommendation for the best 60cm x 60cm tent? I feel a TS1000 LED light would be best from what I have read. Then just a generic fan and whatever inline fan and carbon filter fit that space and good to go?
@percysgrowroom super handy guide. Thanks!
I used 250w hps for ages and grew 4 autos in 12 liter pots but I’d often end up with plants too tall so would sometimes have to bend them at the top to stop them getting burned. I moved to 11 liter pots and a 150 hps which helped but the bulk wasn’t as good. Atm I scrog 2 fulls under the 150 and it’s pretty good but I’d like to scrog under the 250 to see how that goes but a buddie has it for the foreseeable. Have had my eye on a 200w led for a while and would like to try that too. The other thing would be to research short growing strains. I like buying locally so choice was always limited. If you get the 250 you always have the option of putting it in a bigger tent but not so much with the 150. Hope this helps 😁👍
@picina11 Welcome to the best cannabis forum there is, mate! I am a soil grower and have a closet that is just about the size you are asking about. I go with 20L pots for each plant (actually, they are buckets with drain-holes drilled in the bottom), and I could get three buckets in that space but it would get crowded (depending on growing style). Right now I have two girls in there plus a humidifier sitting on top of the third empty bucket.
I started with a broad spectrum LED that is right about 95 watts to light the space, which is just a tiny smidge undersized for bloom, but it does great. With regard to lights, you must decide if you want to go small and cheap to get started, and then upgrade later when needed, or go bigger (as long as you can dial it back) and spend the money now and not have to upgrade later. I decided to go with an cheaper light from amazon (bloom plus) that uses the good Samsung diodes with IR built in. So far, my plants are *loving* it and I only spent about 45cents/watt. It is super inexpensive, but not sexy. Hope that info helps.
Also, there are a bunch of super experienced growers on here willing to help newbs, so just ask if you have a question.
@picina11 I use a Viparspectre P1000 in my 2×2 and it gets the job done for less than $80 US. If you want to spend a little more and get a much better light check out HLG, they have some options for smaller tents that will produce some dank.
For pot size, that depends on your goals. Do you want a micro grow with 5-6 plants in it? Or 1-2 bigger plants? For multiple plants I would say 1 gal pots, for one or two bigger plants I would say 3 gal for that size tent.
Hope this helps!
@picina11 something like the TS1000 or similar that can flower a 2’x2′ area would work in that size tent. im sure others will add to the list
@picina11 Welcome to Percys man 🙂 something equivalent to 250w HID lighting is best for a 60cm grow tent mate. With one plant in a 12-15l pot should be plenty. If going for LED light, the mars hydro tw1000 is good for that space too 🙂
@carraig i am looking to start up with a 60x60x140/160cm tent, what watts do you suggest i go for and what pot sizes should i be having in the tent? Can you help me mate?
I’ve used this size for years, great little setup, hope to move upto a 90×90 next.
Lovely setup, I would change the light for a dimmable LED with removable ballast.
Here’s my *micro budget* version 🤣
Ahhhhh thought so. Lovely grow!
@dee hi dee the base is 60×60, the hieght will be taller. Often 120 or 160 or 2m
Is the height 60cm too? Seems a bit short. …
