Grow Tent Buyers Guide
Secret Jardin growing tents are a quick, simple, and practical solution to creating an optimum indoor environment in which to grow your plants. They’re easy to assemble and come packed with useful features such as hanging points and support bars for lighting, water catchment trays, “socks” for effortless installation of extractor fans and cabling, and waterproofing and light-proofing to ease the process of effectively managing the growing environment.
With over 10 years of experience in this sector of the market we've tested out most of the major brands, with this knowledge we have decided to focus on the Secret Jardin as our leading product due to the innovative product range and continued product development, excellent customer support and long warranties.
We sell 5 different ranges from Secret Jardin, and can order in any other tents they sell, just give us a call if you can't see what you're after.
This is their best selling range and one of the top selling tents in the World. They're certainly not the cheapest tents out there and if we're honest there are similar quality tents on the market at slightly better prices, but we like the feature set, the quality throughout and overall consistency of the product - they work well and give many years of trouble free service.
Every year Secret Jardin refresh their product line to keep the innovation moving forward, the feature sets that were on the Dark Rooms get added to the Dark Streets. So after quite a few revisions over the years the Dark Street is now a decent quality tent at a good price point, it's allot better than allot of the Chinese eBay crap out there but only slightly more expensive.
One of the most innovative tents on the market, the Lodge has three chambers, a growing chamber, a propagator and a chamber for a mother plant. These tents allow you to contain your entire growing cycle within one structure, a really efficient, clean way of growing.
These tents pretty much do what they say on the tin, available in three sizes they are dedicated propagation tents.
The Dark Twin is a two chamber grow tent with the bulk of the tent being on the top, and a much smaller propagation area underneath. It's another novel idea that we really like and goes to show the thought and effort that Secret Jardin have put into developing their product range based on customers needs, they really do stand out from the crowd on this.
Hydroshoot are Secret Jardin’s budget range of grow tents that they don’t make mush fuss about – in fact they are not currently anywhere to be found on their website! They are designed to give retailers an answer to the cheapy Chinese stuff all over Ebay but don’t really get down quite low enough on price, which is why we offer 15% off all of the Secret Jardin accessories when you buy one - this helps to get them into the right price range. They are actually well made, solid tents that will outlast many other tents in the same price range, but the headline features look a bit sparce compared to some of the competition.
Cristal’s are unique in the market – the concept is that the tent becomes the reflector for a CFL or LED lamp allowing for a much smaller top area of the tent. Available in three sizes, these propagation tents are not for everybody but sell quite well and some of our customers love their small and unusual form factor.
The one criticism that we hear allot about the Secret Jardin tents is the poles aren't as strong as for example the Green Qube. It is true that the poles are thinner, but after many years of selling both types of tents we have never has a single instance of the SJ tents not having a strong enough roof, it just doesn't happen. We actually got caught up in this way of thinking ourselves for a while, but in the end we decided that we were much more concerned with product variety, innovation and excellent customer service - and these are the areas where Secret Jardin's really stand out from the crowd.
