    Default Growing with 2 tents

    I already have a second light and another tent (30"x30" / 76cmx76cm) on the way. What's the best way to utilize 2 tents to get more harvests? Both small tents.

    Was thinking when one tent starts flowering, then start vegging in the other and keep it going. Harvest then put new plants in the flower... Anyone else run two that could help.

    That's how I do it sour mate, I start to germinate seeds when flower tent is around 2 weeks in. As with most things in life timing is everything.
    TO GROW A PLANT YOU NEED TO THINK LIKE A PLANT

    Ive seen someone on reddit
    Have 1 veg tent, and 2 or 3 flower tents, each for dofferent stage, says he harvest every 30 days i reckon?

    Long term, i think its all about how many plants u flowered under which lights... So if you do 2 tents veg to flower and keep clones in cupboard for instance... That may suit you more, you will just harvest every 2-3 months, instead of every month...amounts will double... I dont see any big difference mate?

    Go with quick finishers id say, you might be able to 5-6 flower runs per year

    I agree.. 6 one half a dozen the other. The idea of harvesting a new strain every couple months is intriguing.

    Might have to figure out my cloning. Had bad success before.

    Yep i get what ur sayin mate.
    Maybe 3 stages is what u need, clones / early flower / full flower

    So biggest tent is for after stretch or mid stretch.. you save 2 weeks this way so may harvest every 45 days?

    I've got 2 up now, atm using one for photos and the other running autos 24/7. Probably do 6 auto in 7-10 ltr pots in one tent then 4 photo in the other

    That could rly suit you sour...
    Veg and quick autos in one.. photo clones in second, this way you get to try new weeds often + keep your favorite photos

    If I can figure out cloning I might do that. I'm growing reg seeds so I need 6-7 weeks to sex them in veg.

    Stay tuned big things coming to the garden

    It’s easy, I have about 99% success rate using aloe as my rooting gel, I find spraying and leaving cuts in a cup/jar (small amount of kelp/silica) for 24 hours before cutting and placing in cubes works really well, good spectrum of light(not too much, shaded corner in the tent will do)
    Nice high humidity, make sure cubes dont dry out, leave done completely closed first couple days then burp daily and your good,
    Give it ago.....

    I’ve got the 2 tents, but I’ve been growing autos so haven’t used them to my advantage lol.
    Il now be using my smaller tent as a veg tent/ drying tent. And then my bigger tent as a Scrog/flower tent

    Well that’s the plan, I often get carried away

    I just started doing this with my recent grow, and since we moved from autos to photos. 1 for veg 1 for flower. I figure we'd hopefully harvest every 8 weeks give or take. So far I like it.

    I'm kind of leaning that way. Flower and Veg. I grow photos and this was the first time I've ever sexed a plant in veg. About 6 weeks... Gives me 2 more weeks to veg and then flip. My tents are small.

    Nothing against autos, but I felt it was time to move on. Photos do take longer so 2 tents made sense so we don't run out between runs. We were doing everything in a smaller closet before including our 1st two photo runs, then made the switch to a couple decent sized 4x4's from vivosun. I'm really glad we did. Plus we use the closet for drying now, so everything is in a centralized location and not all over the place.
    The 1st photo run we did 8 weeks, the 2nd we tried 6, and after getting the tents we went back to 8 weeks.

    I'm not writing off autos but so far I don't have my technique down for them. I like photos and they seem less forgiving.

    Soo many plants I want to grow!
