What does a tent growing kit include?
Tent growing kits include everything you need - just add your plants or seedlings and start growing. We offer a range of options from cheap grow tent kits for beginners to advanced kits for seasoned indoor gardeners. Our kits come in a range of sizes and include grow light systems (HPS, LED, CFL) from all the top brands like Gavita, Photon, Maxibright, and LUMii, to suit your individual needs.
At London Grow, we know everyone is different, and that’s why we don’t operate on a one size/package fits all method. With us, you’ll find customisable options so you can build a grow tent package that’s right for you.
Each kit comes complete with all the essential gear you’ll need, plus optional extras:
- Grow tent (typically BudBox LITE or Lighthouse LITE)
- Light timer
- Rope ratchets
- Inline extractor fan
- Carbon filter
- A silenced or unsilenced extraction system (you decide when building your package)
- Media & Nutrients (optional add on) - nutrients starter kit, substrate, fabric pots, and saucers
- Basic Add On (optional) – Digital thermometer/hygrometer, clip on fan, jug and pipette
- Complete Add On (optional) – Everything included with the Basic Add On option plus CO2, pH meter, pH Down, pH Up, and a 20L bucket with lid.
All our kits feature tried and tested equipment to ensure you not only get great value but high performance too. For example, even our cheapest indoor growing kit comes with Ram Carbon filters and Inline fans, plus LUMii HPS lights, both respected brands in the industry. We also offer the option to upgrade components for a completely bespoke package.

What size growing tent kit do I need?
Determining the ideal size growing tent kit is essential before you buy. This will avoid wasting money on buying a setup that is too small for your needs.
Generally speaking, the size of your tent will determine how many plants you can grow simultaneously. The bigger your tent, the more plants it can house. However, the actual number will depend on the type, strain and size of the plants, along with your growing method. We discuss tent sizes in further detail on our individual Grow Tent page, along with other important aspects to consider.
We stock and sell kits with the option to choose from 8 different tent sizes: 0.4m2, 0.6m2, 0.8m2, 1m2, 1.2m2, 1.5m2, 2.4m x 1.2m, and 2.4m2.
A general rule of thumb is that 1m2 can comfortably house up to 1-4 medium sized plants. For smaller plants and propagation this number can multiply depending on the plant species.
It is also worth noting that square plant pots can be more space saving space over round pots, helping you to maximise the growing area.
In small tents it is best to stick to one species that grows at the same rate and height to make lighting adjustments and management easier. If you are planning on growing different strains or species side by side you may need to consider a multi-light set up and divide the tent into different areas for different plants or growth stages.
Always be mindful that your plants will grow upward and outwards. Your tent, whatever size, will need enough grow space to accommodate adult plants, and allow for good airflow and canopy cover, plus access for maintenance and pruning.
What are the best grow tent kits for beginners?
If you’re just starting out, you may be better off starting small. As a new grower you will find there are so many different methods and tricks to growing. You may start with one grow method such as container gardening then decide you want to try another method such as the nutrient film technique hydroponic method.
You’ll likely experiment with different substrates and plant species too, until you find what you are most comfortable growing.
Our cheapest and smallest grow tents come with either HPS (high pressure sodium lamps) or CFL (compact fluorescent lights) as standard. Kits with LED lights tend to be a little more expensive but the lower running costs can pay off in the long term. The reduced heat output of LED lights also makes managing the environment easier.

- LUMii Black HPS Kit: 1m2 tent complete with high intensity LUMii Black 600W Digital Kit, starting at just £235.
- CFL Complete Grow Kit: 0.6m2 tent complete with LUMii Maxi reflector, plus blue and red CFL bulbs (low heat, energy efficient lamps perfect for small spaces) starting at just £295.
