VIVOSUN Grow Tent Review
VIVOSUN, 2-in-1, Multi Chambered, Grow Tent
The VIVOSUN, 2-in-1, Mylar Hydroponic Grow Tent Is a budget, highly rated, multi-chamber, tent that can be purchased on Amazon. As stated, the VIVOSUN has has three separate areas for both vegetation, flowering, and propagation. The three chambers allow a beginner to grow cannabis throughout the year. Three rooms is quite unique for a grow tent at this price. Overall, VIVOSUN Grow tents have impressive specifications. However is the VIVOSUN as good as they claim and should you buy it for your indoor growing of marijuana?

NUMBER ONE BEST SELLING "PLANT TENT" ON AMAZON
At the time of this review, VIVOSUN has the number one best selling "Plant Tent" on Amazon, ("Click Here") To See The Top Selling Tent) and they have five tents within the top 20 best sellers. The 2 in 1 grow tent that I am reviewing is number 16 on that list.
It is highly doubtful that, if VIVOSUN makes an inferior product that they would have that would have the number one, best-selling tent, and four other grow tents ranked in the top 20. Therefore, these impressive rankings indicated that it is likely that VIVOSUN has at least an acceptable product that does what it is intended to do: Grow weed and other plants.
For those of you who are interested in general information concerning VIVOSUN, I've included a company description below.
Please note, that the VIVOSUN’s, 2 in 1, grow tents come in multiple sizes. The all models, (except for the size) are essentially the same product. Therefore, the reviews below include both the 3’x2’ and 4’x3’ Grow Tents.
VIVOSUN GROW TENTS SPECIFICATIONS
- Dimensions: 3’x2’ X to 4’x3’
- Exterior Fabric: Heavy Duty, 600D Double Stitched, Thick Canvas
- Interior Fabric: 98 Reflective Mylar (Known To Be Highly Reflective)

VERIFIED PURCHASER REVIEW SUMMARIES
The VIVOSUN grow tent recently had hundreds of reviews. However, as of April 20, 2019, only 15 reviews showed up, and the oldest review is December 29, 2018. Also, almost all of the reviews mentioning the VIVOSUN tent having problems with pinholes were deleted.
I don’t know why the reviews are missing. So, it’s anyone's guess, on whether the reviews are missing because of this being a new version of the 2 in 1, fake bad reviews from a competitor or other unknown reason. As a result, I am not removing any summaries of quality control issues that are missing as VIVOSUN, 2 in 1, grow tent still could be suffering from quality control problems.
- Multi-Chambers: VIVOSUN has three separate growing areas (flowering, propagation, and vegging), which allows for you to theoretically grow weed for 365 days-of-the-year without having to buy another grow tents for each growing phase. This feature is unique for a grow tent at this price level.
- High Quality Material: 600D Canvas, which is known for being a favorite, for lower-priced grow tents, as it is renowned for being strong, durable, and reasonably priced.
- Easy To Install: A common complaint for grow tents is that they can be hard to setup. As a result, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw numerous purchaser’s state that it only took from five to 20 minutes for the full grow tent setup on this VIVOSUN mode. Also, one verified purchaser noted that tools weren’t even necessary to assemble this tent.
- Frame: VIVOSUN's Frame is made of heavy duty metal poles, composed of lightweight aluminum , which are plenty strong to support the 600D, thick canvas.
- Quality Zippers: Faulty zippers are a common complaint about many grow tents. The VIVOSUN uses, Chinese made SBS Zippers, which are made by a Chinese company founded in 1984. SBS, along with their rival YKK (Japanese) control over 50% of the zipper market. Therefore, it is a reasonable assumption, SBS zipper would not be as successful if their zippers were substandard. Also, multiple positive reviews back up the VIVOSUN’s claim of their SBS zippers being well made.
- Extensively Vetted: First of all, as stated earlier, VIVOSUN has over five grow tents that are listed in Amazon's best selling "Plant Tents" category. And, all of VIVOSUN's top-20 best selling tents are rated at least four stars. The VIVOSUN 2 in 1 also has over 300 reviews, and out of five stars is rated a bit over 4. It should go without saying, but these are excellent reviews.
- Reflective Surface: There are complaints about VIVOSUN'S reflective interior being poorly designed. For example, the color black is used in the grow tent when white, as it reflects light better, should only be used. Also, a few purchasers complained that VIVOSUN'S Diamond mylar surface is not very shiny.
- Pinholes: Six reviews, from November 2018 to spring 2019, complained of light leakage. Specifically, reviewers claimed that a newly purchased VIVOSUN tent contained multiple pinholes and light leaks. One verified purchaser said that approximately 30 pinholes were in the VIVIO after he received it, in the mail. Also, there were several recent mentions concerning the fabric seams tearing easily.
- Customer Service: VIVOSUN’S customer service is limited to email. However, to be fair purchasers noted that VIVOSUN is very responsive. But, this could be expected for a Chinese based company.
First of all, you will have a tough time finding another three-chamber grow tent at VIVOSUN's price. This tent features all the bells and whistles that you would want for a reasonable price, I.E., Three Chambers, 600D canvas, observation window, etc.
The VIVIOSUN, due to its being complete grow tent with its multiple chambers, reasonable price, and high Amazon ratings, seems like a definite candidate for being among the top grow tent for beginning and noncommercial cannabis growers. However, because of the numerous recent complaints concerning "light leaks" and other quality complaints, I didn't pick VIVOSUN as being the best grow tent for beginners.
In conclusion, because of its low price, advanced options, and it being a complete solution for indoor gardeners, the VIVOSUN 2-in-1 is an excellent choice for newbie cannabis growers. Just buy some quality, LED grow lights, and you'll be ready to go.

Concerning Light Leakage Complaints
There are a few reviewers who complained about light leakage caused by pinholes. However, out of 300+ reviews, only around six stated that light leaks were a significant problem.
Also, because all you have to do is plug pinholes in the tent with duct-tape or sealant, a few pinholes will likely not be that significant of a problem. (Assuming you place the grow tent in a reasonably dark space.) As long as you make sure to inspect your tent upon receiving it, you'll be able to return the VIVOSUN for either a replacement or a refund.
