Default How I Created a Grow Tent with Baker Shelves

I had a few folks reach out to me about how I created my grow space out of baker shelves. I created this video with links and QR codes to all the equipment I use!

Fantastic video (and welcome to the OB, Bryan)! I particularly appreciate how approachable/concise you made this for new and experienced tent growers and the QR codes for ease.

I've been on the hunt for a good humidity tray as I'll be revamping my tent setup soon, and the ones you recommend fit the bill. I really appreciate this!

How I Created a Grow Tent with Baker Shelves Male

When I whittled down my collection and sold my greenhouse prior to relocating, I did something similar.

I used a baker’s rack shelf from Home Depot, but the size of my plants only allowed me to use 2 shelves.

I recommend folks look at for lighting.

As my setup was temporary, I just used 4 standard 2211 nursery trays, turned sideways, on each shelf, and that actually gave me additional back-to-front depth for plants.

The humidity tent I used was similar in design, but clear all the way around, allowing me to inspect plants from all sides.

Once I got to my new home, I split that into two racks of tow shelves, added casters to them, and replaced the nursery trays with the large boot trays from gardeners supply. I added drains and place a bucket under them when they’re indoors fork the winter.

Being able to wheel the collection in and out as needed is a boon.
