Why You Should Grow Cannabis in a Mid-Size Tent

Published Apr 13, 2019

I think most people growing for personal use would be happiest with a mid-size tent. This size tent accommodates most types of grow light and can grow up to about a pound of cannabis per harvest (a mid-size grow tent has dimensions of 2’x4′ or 3’x3′ with a height of 5′-6′).

In this size category, I prefer the 2’x4’x6′ (0.6mx1.2mx1.8m) size. With only 2′ of depth you can easily reach all of your plants, and 6′ is usually plenty of height even if your plants get taller than expected. Great grow tent for beginners!

This size grow tent can support grow lights like:

Example Plants Grown in This Size Tent

8 plants under 315 LEC in 2’x4’x5′ grow tent – Harvested 497.23 g (17.5 oz or over a pound!) of quality bud


Same size tent with a 250W HPS produced a plant that yielded 6.2 oz at harvest

Original Amnesia in regular light


These 3 autoflowering plants were grown in the same grow tent, also under a 250W HPS and yielded 6.7 ounces at harvest between the 3 plants

This hydroponic White Rhino plant was grown in a 3’x3’x6′ grow tent with a 250W HPS grow light and yielded 6.4 ounces at harvest

A 250W HPS grew this DWC plant in a 3'x3'x6' grow tent

These 7 plants were grown in a 2’x4’x6′ grow tent with a 315 LEC grow light and yielded a total of 384.76g (13.57 oz)

7 plants grown in coco coir under a 315 LEC grow light, just before harvest. They yielded almost 14 ounces!


Those are just a few examples. A mid-size tent is one of the best options for beginner cannabis growers! I’ve planned several more tutorials about growing weed in mid-size grow tents in the near future.
