The Battle of the Boxes – it’s BudBox Lite Vs BudBox Pro
Since 2004, BudBox have been (and remain) the leading and most trusted grow tent producers in the indoor horticulture industry, and it’s easy to see why! All BudBox tents feature excellent quality, robust and highly reflective tent linings, which are well stitched and durable. They may appear similar from the outside, but there are many differences between the two…
BudBox Lite: Excellent for Entry Level Growers
BudBox Lite tents have limited features when compared to the BudBox Pro range, but, because they come in at the right price, they’re perfect for those on tighter budgets or for newcomers who are just venturing into the world of indoor growing. The Lite range features an array of smaller sized tents (not included in the Pro range) that come in handy for growers with limited space. They’re also perfect for vegging and holding mother plants.
The BudBox Lite comes with one type of tent lining, which is mylar/silver 210 dtx. This lining is thick and durable and reflects much of the light from your grow lamp back towards your plants. It also features quality zips. BudBox Lite grow tents come with standard white powder coated, 16mm poles that are held together by strong, plastic connections (except for the larger models, 2.4m square and up, which have even thicker poles).

BudBox Pro: Perfect for the Pros
BudBox Pro grow tents have been a staple at One Stop Grow Shop since 2014. They cost a little extra, but come with a long list of extra features, making them well worth the extra spend.
Firstly, you get a choice of tent linings. Choose between mylar/silver 210 dtx super strong reflective lining or upgrade to a white lining, which delivers a more even light-spread and 10% extra PAR reflection capability. White BudBox Pro tents also show a difference in heat retention. White lined tents hold 6-8 degrees less heat than their mylar (silver) counterparts, so if excess heat is a problem then an upgrade will help to push your grow to the next level. Conversely, if your temps are too low, stick with Mylar which insulates heat by reflecting infra-red radiation. Whatever the conditions in your grow space, BudBox offer a solution!
All BudBox Pro grow tents use heavy-duty, metal corner pieces, and pole connections with click lock connections to keep your framework locked into place, for enhanced structural integrity. 16mm poles feature in the smaller sizes, stepping up to stronger 25mm poles for all sizes above 1.2m square. All poles are black powder-coated to prevent rust. BudBox Pros come with tougher, military grade zips, which are designed to work in the most testing conditions. There are also multiple inspection hatches, from front to back, and the sides too, making tending to your indoor garden incredibly easy.

A Green tinted viewing window features in all BudBox Pros, which allow you to view your plants day or night. The green tint filters out photo-synthetically active light, so that you can check your plants as often as you need to without disturbing light cycles. This is also handy if you want to check on temperature and humidity levels without disturbing the indoor environment itself. When opening and closing the door, you’re disturbing the stable, constant conditions inside, potentially causing issues, so you want to minimise this as much as possible.

Larger BudBox Pro Grow Tents 1.2m square and upwards feature an irrigation bar and port. This bar and port allow you to thread pipework from your grow system directly into your grow tent while keeping it level to the ground, which allows liquids to flow freely through the system. It also keeps the pipework neater and tidier, eliminating trip hazards.

As you can see, there are big differences between BudBox Lite and BudBox Pro tents – by paying that bit more you’ll be getting a whole host of extra features that will make a big difference to both you and your plants. Ultimately, though, BudBox Lite and Pro tents are both streets ahead of the competition, so, whichever you go for, you’ll be sure of getting an excellent grow tent that will last for many indoor growing seasons.
