Mine was the opposite I found it easier to control the environment in the open spaceI tried with and without a tent, both have pros and cons. I would say a tent is easier to control the environment. If you want to have the same level of control of the environment without a tent, it usually costs more to make it work. but it's only my experience
What if I told you I went down to my local area where they were handing out federal supplies after the pandemic and they had a bunch of those reflective blankets that look like tin foil I forget the fabric that they're made out of you're supposed to use them in survival to keep yourself warm I took 10 of those and a roll of Gorilla tape and got her done brotherI am thinking of going tentless. I am a legal grow and am the only one living here. The room I am in is roughly 160 sf. I run with the tent is open most the time anyway.I know I would lose some reflective properties but it would be a hell of a lot easier. I could make some short tables for trays. If anybody has suggestions that would be great.
