I am looking to purchase a couple of grow tents. I had looked into the Secret Jardin brand but noticed you are suspending selling of them. Two questions

1. What made you decide to go with Grow Labs?
2. Is there anything wrong with SJ's tents?

Hope this helps:

Why did BetterGrow stop carrying the Dark Room?
The main reason for switching was due to the fact that our supplier was having trouble meeting the demand; as lead times for the DR increased, so did our backorders. Many of our customers who purchased DRs from BetterGrow had to wait days and in many cases weeks.

Why did BetterGrow choose to carry the Grow Lab?
Everest Garden Supply (the company that brought the Dark Room to the U.S. market) teamed up with HOMEbox (the company who invented the portable grow tent) to create the ultimate portable grow room. HOMEbox is one of the few companies that have no problems with their plastic line tents. They spent and continue to spend thousands of dollars in their facility testing every component of their tents to ensure that they meet the highest safety and quality standards. The new Grow Lab has several improvements and enhancements not found in any other tent on the market.

What are the differences between the Dark Room and the Grow Lab?
Both lines are similar in terms of physical size and appearance. There are a couple of models that differ slightly in size (DR150 vs. GL145, DR300 vs. GL290, etc.) but most lines are almost the exact same size. Also, the wide models are now called long models, so instead of a DR300W we now have a GL145L, etc.

Key Improvements/Highlights:
Stronger, thicker material
Better stitching
Better zippers
Better corners
Clear viewing windows on most models - A GROWLAB EXCLUSIVE!
Increased weight capacity - now holds 100 pounds
Powder coated framework
