  • 5’ deep X 5’ wide X 6’11” tall. This tent provides loads of space and comes with a choice of systems. It can accommodate up to 20 plants in the 20 site Superflow SuperPonics system, or 6 larger plants in the 6 site Bubbleflow Bucket SuperPonics system;

  • Durable, industrial strength zippers are light tight and built to withstand heavy usage;

Lights, Ballasts, Control and Power

SuperCloset and Dealzer both offer the same lighting system with the 5’ X 5’ Grow Tent Kit:
  • Award winning Lumatek 600W dimmable, digital ballast. This ballast is one of the most popular ballasts in the world, and with good reason;
  • Digital ballasts put out around 30% more lumens than traditional magnetic ballasts whilst consuming less energy;
  • Dimmable ballast can be turned down to 400W when required, saving energy and protecting young and delicate plants;
  • Award winning ballast outperforms old school ‘core and coil’ ballasts, running in total silence with no annoying buzzing or flickering;
  • Lumatek ballast is fully compatible with all suitable HPS, MH and dual spectrum bulbs. Soft start technology extends bulb life by up to 300%;
  • Ballast comes with matching high quality 600W HPS grow lamp to give you all the lumens you need for this space;
  • Blazer 6” air cooled reflector keeps a current of air flowing over the bulb. By keeping the bulb temperature down it is possible to get the bulb closer to the growing canopy for better, faster growth;
  • Blazer reflector includes hinged tempered glass and neoprene gasket to hold it tightly in place. Textured German aluminum interior is 95% reflective, directing the light to where you need it, the canopy. Air cooling flanges are fitted with a bead ring to keep ducting securely in place;
  • Heavy duty yoyos give you complete control over light placement, allowing you to lower it to the canopy for stronger, more vigorous growth.

Air Movement, Air Filtration, Heat and Odor Control

  • SuperCloset and Dealzer both offer Phresh 6” X 24” industrial strength activated carbon filters. These quality filters ensures that your grow is odor free, keeping dank smells inside the tent;
  • Carbon filter includes pre-filter;
  • 2 X 6” Hurricane inline fans provide a total of 870 cubic feet of fresh air per minute (435CFM each). Completely changing the air in the tent almost 5 times per minute. High volume air exchange is essential in bringing in CO2 for your plants and expelling stale, used air;
  • Hurricane fans operate quietly and are made from hard wearing, powder coated steel. All components are UL certified for reliability;
  • 25 feet of ThermoFlo SR ducting helps keep operating noise to a minimum;
  • Internal air circulation is provided by 2 X powerful 6” dual speed internal circulation fans. These fans are fully adjustable for height and tilt. Good internal air circulation is important for strengthening stems and preventing the build up of humidity which can cause bud rot;
  • Internal Infrared blocking panel fits snugly into the roof of the tent. This super-insulates the tent, making temperature control easier and eliminating give-away heat signatures (only while stocks last).

What people saying about the 5 X 5 Grow Tent Kit

“Fantastic! I am very pleased with my 5 X 5 grow tent kit.”

“This kit has given me enough room for 6 huge sativas. Other tents and grow boxes are often too small and rely on you growing autos or smaller indicas. I grew 6 Neville’s Hazes in this and they filled it right up. Yields were amazing.”

“I bought this for my first grow. At first I thought I should get something smaller, but I know how things are – you ALWAYS want to upgrade within a few weeks of buying anything new. I was right. I am now growing 20 plants at a time and am looking for another tent so I can start growing some big mamas!”
