If you’re having trouble figuring out how to grow vegetables with a grow tent kit, read on! I’ll be showing you seven awesome tips for your plants to grow healthy and strong to reap harvests. 
 
Seven Tips to Grow Vegetables With a Grow Tent Kit
Grow tents allow you to garden whatever you want or need any time of the year. They also offer a ton of other benefits such as keeping pests out and creating a suitable environment for your plants. If you’re planning to invest in one, prepare for what to do with these tips, depending on what vegetable you want to plant:
 
      1. General Tips
Let’s start off with some general indoor growing tips, such as:
  • Use POTTING mix and not garden soil
  • Containers need to have good drainage and sized for their individual plant
  • Sunny windows may not provide an adequate amount of light, which is why you’ll need a grow tent with plant lights
  • Avoid placing your plants too close to the window, as they may be subject to heat sources or drafts that can dry it out
 
      2. Carrots
It’s easiest to grow smaller carrots, as they need less space and would mature fast. Use a window box when planting them and ensure that the soil is moist when seeding. Lightly cover your carrot seeds using damp peat moss to prevent drying out.
 
Once you’ve done that, wait for it to germinate, taking about two days. The days it takes to mature depends on what kind of carrots you’re growing.
 
      3. Garlic Greens
Garlic requires a specific temperature so it can form bulbs. You won’t need large containers for planting garlic, just a pot that has a depth of four inches or so. Plant individual cloves at around one inch deep, watering regularly.
 
The garlic cloves will begin sprouting within a week. However, you need to allow them to grow for up to ten inches before harvesting. Get what you need and leave it to sprout again.
 
      4. Lettuce and Salad Greens
Garlic requires a specific temperature so it can form bulbs. You won’t need large containers for planting garlic, just a pot that has a depth of four inches or so. Plant individual cloves at around one inch deep, watering regularly.
 
The garlic cloves will begin sprouting within a week. However, you need to allow them to grow for up to ten inches before harvesting. Get what you need and leave it to sprout again.
 
      5. Microgreens
Microgreens are the easiest plants you can grow indoors! It won’t take up too much space or time, as they’re a mix of seeds of different herbs and greens.
 
You won’t need a ton of soil to plant them, having just a shallow tray of two inches deep. Fill the container with soil, moisten the soil, then scatter your seeds. Press the seeds gently to the surface for it to make contact with the damp soil. Water and maintain its moistness, and termination happens in days.
 
      6. Scallions 
You won’t be able to grow bulb onions in a grow tent, but you can grow scallions like garlic greens. 
 
One can plant scallions by replanting the scallion’s root ends, placing it in a glass with an inch of water. Once they’ve grows a few inches, place it in a shallow container filled with potting mix and have them grow from there. 
 
      7. Tomatoes
It’s possible to grow tomatoes if you start new plants from seed by the end of the summer. Allow the seeds to germinate (about four inches tall), move it to its permanent pot, ensuring they have ten hours of light daily. I also recommend that you feed the plant with organic fertilizer.
 
Yes, it’s a lot of effort, but tomatoes are a bit complicated when growing indoors.
 
Wrapping It Up
Grow tents are extremely useful for the gardener who wants to grow their plants all-year-round. As long as you pick out the best equipment and have a good attitude to learn, then you’ll be able to pick out your harvests in time. Now it’s on to the next thing to learn to grow as a gardener!
