Secret Jardin L160 Lodge Tent 160x120x198cm.
The Secret Jardin L160 Lodge Tent 160x120x198cm is a high-quality grow tent that is strong and sturdy with a very reflective Mylar silver material lining. It is ideal for use as the central unit in your hydroponic growing system.
The designers have sought to offer three distinct areas within the same tent to accommodate the three stages of a plant’s life cycle.
This tent offers several worthwhile attributes and features, including the following:
- It provides two distinct areas: one for vegetative growth and the other for flowering
- Lightproof operation with no light leaks between chambers
- Easy and quick to assemble and also to dismantle
- Solid and completely waterproof base
- Velcro intake vents
- Cord pull vent holes
- 1x PocketIT: tools pouch with fully adjustable height
- 1x pair HookIT: hooks for lighting
- 15x CableIT: clips for cables, nets etc.
How does this tent work?
This tent is version 4.0 of a very successful and popular range. This new version offers something quite innovative: the two-in-one station concept, allowing you to enjoy a space for blooming and another separate area for vegetative plant growth in the same tent. The L160 also offers a third space.
The L160 has an overall 160cm width that is split at 120cm, creating a 120cm by 120cm main chamber and two 40cm by 120cm chambers. The lower space has a maximum height of 100cm, and the upper section has a maximum height of 98cm.
The main chamber is highly suitable for a 600W HID light and a 100cm parabolic reflector.
The smaller compartments would be limited to smaller CFL lamps, T5s or LED strips, but several configurations are possible.
Secret Jardin has provided growers with a comprehensively contained environment that allows all three parts of a plant’s growing cycle to occur within their own separate spaces within the same tent; an excellent idea.

How do I use the Secret Jardin L160 Lodge Tent 160x120x198cm?
This tent is easy to assemble at home or the workplace. The illustrated guide gives details on how first to construct the framework, then the interior details, and lastly how to attach the silver Mylar fabric, which acts as the very efficient reflective material that allows so much of the light to reflect towards the plants.
Which Size Fan and Filter Should I Use For My Grow Tent?
There’s a straightforward method to determine what size extractor fan you require for use within your grow tent. To begin with, you need to select the capacity or volume in cubic metres of your grow space using Width x Length x height to equal the volume. Multiply the volume x 60 = Air Movement Per Hour (to refresh the air in the grow tent).
If you’re using a filter (which you very likely are), calculate the volume of air you will need to shift by multiplying the Air Movement Per Hour x 1.2. You now have the volume of air the fan must move, so that is the number you should pair with the fan’s rating for your grow tent.
All extractor fans should show you their power rating prominently, as this is the most important metric you will need to decide the fan you should select to go with your grow tent.
It is far better to over-spec your fan and then reduce its output with a controller because this provides you with the adaptability to enhance its output after that to maintain optimum conditions for your plants. In essence, if in doubt, go with the more powerful fan.
