Our Pro-Level Grow Kits Are the Key to Bumper Crops
Here’s the buzz on our large commercial-grade grow kits: Whether you want to enjoy generous rolling harvests of your favorite wonder herb, grow different strains for different purposes, or raise a variety of medicinal species at once, they’ve got the room and the gear needed to sustain a never-ending paradise of medical magic.
A step (or two) up from our small kits, this 3x3 grow solution has been curated for dedicated growers seeking a serious wealth of abundance. Each component has been individually identified by Vermont’s most experienced growers as the best of its kind and carefully tested for the two things you care about most: durability and simplicity. We’re not blowing smoke—from expanded head space that lets your plants get gloriously high to digital ballasts that run completely silent, our large kits have the industrial strength required to grow big.
But don’t be fooled! You don’t need an agricultural science degree to use them, just the desire to grow a chronic supply of life’s finer things. These comprehensive set-ups do the rest by providing a complete all-in-one, high-yield solution that leaves nothing to chance and is guaranteed to produce major harvests with maximum ease—all organically and for far less capital than it would cost you to assemble an outfit like this yourself and much less effort than ordinary systems require.
All you need is seed. Our 3x3 kit is a virtual farm-in-a-box for up to 6 plants. Here’s what you get:
- The GSG Tent.
Our custom-spec blackout tents combine extra-thick, light-tight 210D Mylar® we selected for its superior reflectivity with ultra-rugged, pro-grade galvanized poles and reinforced connectors. With expanded headroom to permit taller growth, floor liner, cord ports, and vent windows, they erect in minutes so you can get growing.
- The Phantom Ceramic Metal Halide (CMH) Bulb, Ballast, and Reflector Kit (3100K)
Hydrofarm's new Phantom CMH System combines the Phantom CMH reflector with the multi-voltage Phantom ceramic halide-specific digital ballast and the Philips double-jacketed Master Power CDM Elite Agro 315W T12 ceramic metal halide lamp.
Ceramic metal halide technology represents a major advancement in HID evolution. These lamps provide high-quality growth spectrum, amazing PAR per watt performance, and extra energy in the ultraviolet range—which all contribute to increased crop quality. Excellent maintenance of PAR/PPF over long lamp life means great value and far longer re-lamping intervals.
- GSG Seed-Starting Kit.
No growing pains here. Our self-watering system takes the guesswork out of sprouting. Delicate seedlings get only the water they need only when they need it to grow up big and strong every time. Just keep the reservoir full and it does the rest. With 12 cells, a humidity cover, and leak-proof construction, it’s dishwasher-safe for a lifetime of reuse. (Note the capillary mat is handwash-only!)
- GSG Organic Seed-Starter Mix.
Created with our partners at the Vermont Compost Company, New England’s top organic compost and potting soil maker. Our field-tested custom blend of peat, perlite, compost, protein meal, and minerals has been shown to boost growth rates, strengthen root systems, and produce much sturdier transplants.
- GSG Smart Pots.
Your growing pot is serious business in more ways than one. It’s the secret to bounty. We make ours from breathable fabric in order to expose root tips to air and aggressively promote vital feeder roots that enhance flowering. Heavy-gauge material with reinforced stitching literally stands up to crop after crop, and we include 1-gallon transplanters whose clever overlapping wrap design makes it easy to move your medicine to bigger quarters without hair loss and 5-gallon grow pots that give your pungent plant life ample room to live long and prosper.
- GSG Organic Container Mix.
Our proprietary all-natural growing medium is the real thing—living soil formulated specifically to fatten up your prized flowering annuals. It contains what we’ve discovered to be the golden ratio of rich compost for slow-release nutrition, peat for water retention, and vermiculite for aeration plus a few secret ingredients added over decades of grower testing. No pH adjustment or chemicals needed; all-organic is better!
- GSG’s Detailed Growing Instructions.
You’re not just getting our stuff, you’re getting all our know-how, too—a complete set of fully-baked how-to instructions distilled from long experience and the wisdom of our fellow green thumbs at Vermont’s top herbal outlets. Consider it your exclusive prescription for a full harvest bowl packed with health and happiness.
- The Remaining Essentials.
To make sure joy always blooms, each kit also includes:
- Inline Fan & Speed Controller.
We went with a slightly oversized duct fan and controller that can go from whisper to gale to provide whatever fresh airflow makes your plants happier than you’ll be at harvest.
- 4" Ducting.
For optimal atmosphere control in your tent.
- Aluminum Tape.
Our ducting comes with clamps, but we think this 2-mil tape is much easier to use.
- Strip Timer.
We found life is a lot simpler with a single timer/strip unit. Ours has four timed and four constant outlets so you can be master of your electrical domain.
- Indoor/Outdoor Thermometer.
Monitor the temperature inside and outside your tent to get the absolute highest yields.
- BioBloom Fertilizer.
This is the one whose test results impressed us the most. A complete OMRI-certified, 100% organic, low-odor formula that gives your greenery the biggest measurable boost in flower size. When used with our exclusive organic container mix, this is the only nutritional fuel you’ll need to ensure a high-flying crop.
- Web Netting.
Facilitate maximum light exposure and keep your plants in the somewhat ironic upright position for optimum health.
- Clip Fan.
Keep the air moving inside your tent to increase stem strength and encourage healthy transpiration.
