Secret Jardin DP90 Production Information

The Dark Propagator (DP) 90 is a waterproof indoor tent with a double-flap zipper to increase its air-proof quality. The fabric is lined with 95% reflective mylar to improve light distribution and increase light intensity. The advised extraction are as follows:

  • Flow (every 1-2 mins): 30 m3/h
  • Grow (every 2-4mins): 14 m3/h
