The company made sure it only uses the best materials available, allowing you to start your indoor garden the soonest time possible and to do it for a considerable amount of time.

However, does this cheap grow tent works as good as the company claims it to be? In this grow tent review, I will discuss in more detail if this product is truly high-quality or not.

Design & Durability 

When it comes to design and durability, Vivosun made sure to have a simple but useful design and use only the best materials without making their product too expensive.


The company used 600D canvas for the grow tent, a top-quality material that is tear-proof. To ensure its durability and optimal light-blocking capability, Vivosun double-stitched the canvas when they designed the overall layout. This gives you a long-lasting and sturdy canvas for your grow tent.


For the frame, Vivosun used metal poles and corner adapters to pair with their canvas. These frames add to the durability and stability of the grow tent, so you will not have to worry about the tent losing its balance or falling apart.

Reflection & Seal Quality

Vivosun uses an exceptional design for the grow tent to maximize its light-retention function. They use the “diamond” reflective mylar design that provides a 98% grow light reflection, which means you will not have to worry about your cannabis plant not getting the right amount of light while inside the grow tent. 

The Vivosun also used a heavy-metal zipper that has a double layer black lining. It also has dual drawstring closures on the duct openings so you can properly seal the fan and avoid light leakage.  The company also used dual layers for its ventilation, where the inner layer seals tightly around the ventilation fan, and Velcro covers the exhausts to add to its good seal quality.

Vivosun added a double-layer black lining on its zippers to provided added sealing protection so the light will not escape through the zipper.

Ventilation & Exhaust Duct

A good grow tent is not complete without the proper ventilation and exhaust ducts to provide your plant with the right amount of air and ensure healthy plant growth. 

Vivosun’s cheap grow tent is anything but, what with the way the ventilation and exhaust system is built. The opening and ventilation are organized in a way that maximizes carbon filtering and dispensing of CO2.

You can also use the openings for cables and wires when you are setting up your grow light. Each opening has the proper cove that is needed to ensure the light will not escape. The exhaust ducts have a mesh on the opening to use for ventilation.

Safety Features

Vivosun used a heat-resistant material for the grow tent. This keeps the canvas from easily catching fire, and it can withstand even the highest levels of heat. It is also tear-proof. 

Moreover, the company looks after your safety as you assemble the tent with tool-free clips and connectors. If you do not need to use a lot of tools, you lessen the risk of injuries.

Extra Features

The grow tent comes with a viewing window to allow you to look and check your plant without the need to unzip the tent. It also has an inner tool organizer where you can properly put and organize the tools you need when you care for your plant. This ensures you will not misplace them anywhere or leave them lying around inside the tent. 

There is also a removable floor tray that is designed to catch spillage from your plant. The floor tray is waterproof, reflective, and is easy to remove. The removable tray helps in making it easy to clean the grow tent.

Ease of Use

Setting up the grow tent is easy and simple. You will not need to use additional tools or equipment during assembly. The company provides an instruction manual as a guide for the installation. Start with putting the frame together and then fitting the canvas over it.

Vivosun also made sure that the ducts and openings are located in appropriate places to make it easier for you to install cables and set up the ventilation system and grow lights inside the tent.

Value for Money 

There are numerous features and benefits that this tent provides, giving you a good value for the money you will spend when you buy this product. The product costs as low as $54 to as much as $370, depending on the size. The price is good, considering the features that the grow tent offer. This shows that the cheap grow tent Vivosun offers provides the best bang for your buck. You can easily start your indoor garden without the need to spend more.


  • The main downside with this grow tent is that its instruction manual lacks the proper information. A lot of customers complained about having a hard time assembling the tent since the instructions are incomplete. It would be good if Vivosun provides a proper step-by-step guide for customers to follow and make assembling the tent easier.

 Another downside is the lack of a windowless option for the grow tent. Not everyone uses the viewing window of the tent and there are also concerns that the window is causing the light inside to leak out, even if the cover is closed.

Who Should Buy this Grow Tent?

The Vivosun Grow Tent is designed for people who want to grow cannabis but do not have the outdoor space for it or a huge budget for a complete indoor setup.

 The tent comes in many different sizes, providing you with the flexibility to work with any space you have in your home. If you are a beginner, you can start off with something small, just enough for 1 or 2 plants to make it easier to take care of and not use too much space in your home.

Anyone with an extra $54 can purchase this grow tent from Vivosun. This means budget do not have to be a problem.

Final Verdict

The final score for the Vivosun Grow Tent is 4.25 out of 5.

The company made sure to provide a high-quality product using some of the best materials available and putting in the right number of openings for ventilation and other uses. Vivosun’s design made this a mylar grow tent, which means it can optimally reflect light. The company even added other features like an inner pocket to put your tools in, and a removable waterproof tray for easy cleaning. The company’s excellent customer service team and affordable price also add to its good overall score.

However, I could not give the company a perfect score since they fall short in certain aspects and people complained about it. Despite the negative points, I still believe this grow tent is a great buy, especially if you are looking to start an indoor garden with a limited budget. 

The many benefits that this tent offers have far outweighed any downsides of the product. You are getting a great and good quality product for the amount of money that you spend.

Vivosun uses metal poles and corners for the frames of the grow tent, ensuring it is durable and sturdy enough to hold everything that you will install on the tent.
