Grow-Along: Burmese Kush in a 3x3 tent

Follow along with our weekly indoor garden videos as we use a 3.5'x3.5' Complete Grow Kit with a PhytoMAX-2 800 LED Grow Light to grow 4 Burmese Kush Cannabis plants- from clone through harvest!

Each week we will post a new video overview of the week's activity for this grow, so check back every week for an update!

Week 1 of Vegetative Growth

Covers preparation for the grow, starting with clones, and getting things settled in to start vegetative growth.

Week 2 of Vegetative Growth

This week shows transplanting the clones into larger pots.

Week 3 of Vegetative Growth

The plants are growing rapidly, and need to be topped to encourage a bushier growth habit.

Week 4 of Vegetative Growth

The plants need an even more thorough topping and thinning to keep a nice, dense, flat canopy.

Week 5 of Vegetative Growth

We continue topping the plants to get a nice, bushy plant with a flat canopy, and transplant them into their final fabric pot to be used for flowering.

Week 6 of Vegetative Growth

We remove small sucker branches from the base, as the plants grow to nearly fill the tent- almost time to flip them into flower!

Week 7- Flip into Flower (Flower Week 1)

Since the plants have grown enough to fill the tent, we defoliate them (cut off most of the leaves) and flip them into flower! Within 4 days the plants have re-grown leaves.

Week 8 / Flower Week 2

The plants are growing and stretching during their second week of flower.

Week 9 / Flower Week 3

The plants are really starting to push out flowers, and on day 18 of flower we perform the second defoliation, removing all the leaves again and cleaning up the bottom of the plants. After defoliation, we install the scrog net to provide support for the growing buds as well as spacing them evenly in the tent.

Mixing Nutrients

This video covers how we are mixing the Advanced Nutrients we are using for this grow.

Flower Weeks 6-9

Checking in on the flowering plants as they start to really put on weight! At the last two weeks of flower we flush the plants to clear out excess nutrients.


After 68 days in flower, the plants are ready to harvest! We take down all the buds, trim them up, and get them drying. For the record, the final dried weight was 1090 grams- 2.4 pounds of top-shelf flowers!

Final Weigh-In

Once dried and cured, we weigh up all the flowers- 1090 grams!

Setting the HT2 Controller and Fans for Drying

This video shows how to reprogram your HT2 controller to maintain humidity for a proper drying cycle, as well as how to use the timer to control oscillating fans during the drying process.

Grow-Along Coverage

This grow shows how to start from clones, how to water and care for your plants, trimming, training, harvesting, drying and curing the flowers.

    Please make a video covering nutrients and how you progress the totally ppm's and pH through different growth phases. Thank you!

      Thank you for the feedback and for watching! We will add this to our list for future videos. Stay tuned!

    you guys should make a pay ment plan on lights and tent kits because mostly everyone cannot for a 3000-4000 dollars or $2,000 a light should make a payment plan and not deliver it to their finish plan

    Is it 3x3 or 3.5 x 3.5 tent? Im confused. If its a 3x3 tent, why didnt you use a Photomax2- 600 as you recommend for that size? I have twin 315w LECs in a 120 x 100cm space. I get 30oz from 2 White Widows. I have used a Phytomax2-400 in the same tent and it fell way short on that yield. I am looking to buy a 3x3 tent and buy a Photomax2- 600. I would be happy with 30+ oz from 2 plants. I will use the 400 i have for grow only. Can the 600 perform better than my LECs?

    • Noah

      Hi Russell, this grow-along was in a 3.5' X 3.5' tent. In this space you can use anything from our 400 up to our 800 and we offer this kit with all of those lights. It comes down to the yields you are looking to attain from the space and the experience of the grower. If you run a lot of light in a small space it requires a bit more skill and experience. Two 315w LECs would actually be using around 700 watts with their ballast overhead. When the 600 is run with good genetics, a good grower, and a good environment it will easily hit 1.5 lb (24 oz.) per run. However higher weights are attainable with improved genetics or grower skills.
      Happy gardening,

    Love the video's - keep them up.

    I have a situation where I will be growing during the winter months. I normally keep my house at 68 degrees, and I'm wondering if I will need to raise the temperature in my grow tent? To achieve optimal growth. I want to use a 400BD in a 3 x 3 tent, but I'm concerned I will need to raise the room temperature and make my grow cost prohibitive - any suggestions?.

    • Kevin

      Hello John,

      Keeping your house at 68 degrees shouldn't be a problem at all. Our PhytoMAX-2 400 in a 3x3 tent will heat up the tent some, although probably not to the ideal 85 degrees with the light on. This is easily fixed by adding a little bit of extra insulation to the tent- usually getting a piece of $5 drop-cloth plastic such as used for painting and draping it over the top and sides of the tent is enough to keep the tent in the ideal temperature range. If one layer of plastic isn't enough, you can fold it over for a second or third layer to keep the tent warm enough.

      If you use a temperature controller such as the HT-2 to operate an exhaust fan, it is easy to maintain the ideal day (85 degrees) and night (68 is perfect for night) temperatures.
