An enclosed system, either totally or partially, used to grow plants inside or in confined spaces is called a grow box / grow tent. Grow tents can be utilized for a variety of reasons, such as a lack of outdoor space or the desire to grow vegetables, herbs, or flowers in the winter. They can aid in defending plants against disease or pests.

Grow tents can be hydroponic or soil-based. The most advanced variants are completely enclosed and have a built-in grow light, ventilation fans for intake and exhaust, a hydroponics system that uses nutrient-rich solution to hydrate the plants, and an odour control filter. Some cutting-edge grow box systems even integrate air conditioning to lower operating temperatures and CO2 to accelerate plant development. The gardener can maintain the ideal temperature, light patterns, nutrition levels, and other circumstances for the selected plants thanks to these cutting-edge components.
