A grow kit includes everything you need to get started growing plants indoors. It is a self-contained space that includes a grow light, circulation fans, grow tent and other essential items.

A grow kit is perfect for beginners, as well as experts who want to grow plants at home. With a grow kit, you have complete control over growth processes and how organic you want them.

We have tested many different grow kits to help find the easiest ones to set up and start using. We took into consideration cost, quality, ease of use, safety, and other such concerns to create our grow kits. We worked with the manufacturers to put together different kits to fit different budgets for a rewarding and fund growing experience.

Of course there are! If you were to consider the cost per ounce if purchased directly and your needs, over the long-run, you come out way ahead financially by growing at home. To illustrate, you could harvest an ounce per plant about every three months. If you grow 5 plants, that 5 ounces every three months.

Most of our customerscan earn a return on their startup costs within the first harvest. Many others, by their second.

The most notable change has been with grow light technologies. In the past, you were limited to expensive HID or HPS grow lights. Today, LEDs are becoming the preferred standard in grow kits and grow setups.

LED grow lights are very energy efficient and offer the full spectrum of light to fit your specific growing needs. Most of our customers experience an increase in their energy bills that range from about $10 to $15 per month for having an at-home grow setup.

It will depend on the specific kit. Most kits require a space that is about 4 feet by 2 feet for the tent. You also need easy access to electrical outlets.

While hydroponics is certainly one option, most beginners are encouraged to use soil for growing their plants with the right blend of nutrients and plant food.

Yes it can cost slightly more. On average, expect the cost to be about $3 more per month on your energy bill, compared to growing with soil.

It depends on the type of plants you are growing. With Herbs plants, there is not much smell until they start flowering. Even then the carbon filter in the fan helps remove most odors so there is relatively little smell.

Once you have your grow kit setup and begin growing, there is very little maintenance. You do need to water the plants following a specific schedule for the type you are growing. You also have to remember to feed your plants nutrients and plant food periodically for proper development.

It depends on the type of plant. With Herbs plants in general, growth time takes around 12 weeks before you can harvest.

It depends on the type of plant. Herbs plants require 16 hours of light and 8 hours without light and no red light during their vegetative cycle during the first few weeks. After this stage, the plants require 12 hours of light and 12 hours of no light with red light in the light spectrum.

It is very easy using the included instructions. Allow between 1 to 2 hours when setting up your first grow kit.
