Well looks like I might actually get some seed's planted tomorrow , it's been a long wait to get everything sorted .                                                        Tent is a budbox Pro 1.2 X 1.2 by 1.8 m really struggled to get a tent to fit the space available in me garage height was the biggest issue as most tent's are 2m and only had 1.9 max .     Lighting Led Mars hydro SP3000 X2     Auto pot system got the smart pot one with fabric 18 Lt x4                            Heating the tent in a concrete garage is the problem bought a heater but it's struggling , so I've ordered some 50mm thermal insulation sheets to fit around the outside of my tent . Thoughts people 😁

Insulation will work fine, tape or strap it together and you wont even need the tent, lol...might still need the heater though...and something to control it...Inkbird 308, maybe, if you havent got anything already

And its relatively easy to chop 100mm off the top of the poles to make it a 1.9m...just get a bit of a saggy bottom 😉

Got some foil tape with the kingspan insulation , thought I might have a heating problem before I started , but insulating the tent is easier than doing the whole garage , it's going to save money with the electric bill .

@dobbin Heyo, I would get some rigid foam insulation and install it under the tent or inside the tent on floor and then cover with plywood. Seeing the height is shy for your tent use it inside the tent. This would definitely compliment the insulation that you are adding to the outside of the tent keeping those girls toasty. 

We just smiled n waved sittn there on that sack o seeds

Have you done that zn? I did it with my first tent. After I moved into a new house, my space was 1,9m high and had to cut them poles. The tent was very saggy and the negative preassure pulled all that walls too much inside. It sucked. Now I got a proper 1,8m high tent.

I mean, you can always cut the poles to fit in a lower celing room, but it's lower than suboptimal, for me 😉

You have to do a bit of folding and put a stitch in each corner if you want negative pressure...its not ideal but essential if your dickhead mate has already bought the tent and tried to put it up himself Grin
