I have just received today my Secret Jardin DR150 and put it all together by myself, you will want to have a second pair of hands to help you with this It is doable but kinda a pain to get the tent over the supports. you start off with putting the cross bars together this is problem number one they are not sturdy when placed together so you will need to tape this with some kind of tape and it fixes the problem easily. once i got the tent together i placed the cross bars in where you hang your lights, fans, filters, etc. this is my biggest problem they didn't seem to put much effort into making these they do not fit very well and you have to place two pieces together to make it go the length of the tent and the ends of the pieces are just like little half hooks that you place onto the top of the bars. well the middle of the piece where you would hang your lights doesn't connect all the way so its just like half way in place this doesn't make me feel comfortable at all but will have to deal with it. next thing is that my tent which is the "pro2" upgraded version i guess, is that that waterproof detachable floor that comes with it is BLACK?! wth picture and directions show the same material on the hole tent which is a nice reflected material but not the floor kinda stupid but doable. so everything is put together so i shut myself inside the tent to see how light proof this bad boy really is to my surprise its pretty damn solid just a few pin holes here and there probably from shipping and handling. they always seem to put those stupid vents on the side which I hate but every tent ive seen has had one, it seals up pretty well its Velcro so you can seal it up. now time for the good the material is very very thick which is great the reflected material is awesome and after taping the joints of the bars it is super sturdy. the zippers are very high quality as far as i can tell and they did some kind of double layer on the zippers both sides have a flap over it and keep it very well light proof. the ports for cords and ducting are two sided flap holes and have a string to close it tight for light leaks i like this very much. so pretty much only things i do not like about this tent are the hanging fixtures because they are not properly in place they could have done a better job on that for sure and second the floor being black i just don't get that part lol. overall as far as i can tell its a great tent all the problems can be fixed with simple duct tape or any kind of tape. i give it a 9/10 and would recommend this tent for anyone. sorry im not the best at grammar and putting my thoughts to words lol so bare with me and i hope this helps someone looking into a secret jardin peace jblaze

Eh Upski Blazey :) Hear you on the roof bars of the tent.. got the DS120... DR120 was the way to go cus got tiny light leaks around da zip and the wee vent flap?? i hooked everything up but never opened the vents so da negative pressure was well mad so that may have caused so of the leaks but tis in a dark back room anyways and is kushty... love me tent... best thing i ever did that and the move up to 600W... tis the hieght of the DR's really for me.. like me 180cm tall gig and why they do the detachable floor black is just not well thought out... i couldnt hang two lights without moving everything out of my DS120.. cus the roof is pants to be honest LOL... they must know we like bars and lots of them to hang all sorts from but naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. just seen the vid the 150 has more bars but still think they could do a better.. mine has just 2 bars to for the roof... wishing some mental massive harvests from your tent mucker... they come down and go back up a piece of cake too which is well handy.

Hey, jb, good topic for me, too, as I've got a DRII. The "tray" is black, like yours, but whatever, the plants probably don't have great expectations about receiving light on their undersides? I think the E bar, the last one, is supposed to hook onto the two D bars, not the frame of the tent. That will stabilize it and them, too. I hook my lights directly to the frame and barely use those bars at all. And I open sideflaps less and less as I've dialed in intake, outtake fans and filters. Definitely great to have such a controllabe ecosystem for the laydays. AS for lightproofness, I bought mine after a comparison review where the dude said that this one was the best of the current crop for real blackout, mostly cause of zipflaps you mentioned. And, as per takedown and put up, had to tear the grow down and hide it the other day, and it took a while with all the stuff in there, but the tent itself was quick. Mine's only 2x2, so harder to have problems with it, but MUCH less reward in the end;)

Hey JB, What size is the tent. That is strange about the floor. Both of my tents have removable bottoms but are reflective. Best of luck to your future grows in it. Peace, Blue

love me tent... best thing i ever did that and the move up to 600W... tis the hieght of the DR's really for me.. like me 180cm tall gig and why they do the detachable floor black is just not well thought out... i couldnt hang two lights without moving everything out of my DS120.. cus the roof is pants to be honest LOL... they must know we like bars and lots of them to hang all sorts from but naaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah. just seen the vid the 150 has more bars but still think they could do a better.. mine has just 2 bars to for the roof...

wishing some mental massive harvests from your tent mucker... they come down and go back up a piece of cake too which is well handy.

hey hey whats up lucky. yea the vents are stupid I don't understand why they put them in honestly. and yeah mine has a tiny light leak in them but like yours mine is a dark place anyways and not to worried about light leaks, I love the height as well makes for some nice sized lants for sure for the bars you would think they know we are buying a tent and most likely have a a/c hood or running multiple lights so they would add a few extra bars that actually fit haha. thanks for the kinds words im pumped for next grow in this

hey whats up green yeah not quite sure why they would make it black I emailed the seller I bought from and they said it was a change jardin made a few years back and they have nothing to do with that, so Im guessing that it saved them about 10 bucks and charged an extra 100 for it lol, and yes the zip flaps are very nice and it defiantly beats my other 4x4 tent as far as anything really im really happy I bouht this tent and yes mine is the 5x5x7 or close to it at least but it looks giant next to my 4x4 for some reason haha

Hey blaze I'm not a fan of the secret jarden tents myself. Hang a light in there turn it on then go outside the tent. Those pin holes wil be more numerous. I had 2 and sent them bac the 1.2m x 1.2m x 1.8m there were hundreds of pin holes in them. And the black floor piece is what they are sending with all tents now. I bought a dp90 tent very small and it is full of pin holes but it's onli for clones. Hate to be so negative but there are better made tents on eBay by some company's KNS is 1 their tents hav no pin holes or problems There poles are sturdy and all metal poles for hanging lights And they fit into the plastic pieces to hold the frame up very snugg indeed And are not as expensive. Now tell me you have bad grammer lol Rant off hahaha fith Bonghead

Hey Bong, sorry to hear about your bad luck with these tents. My 10 x 10 has 4000w in it and you can barely tell the lights are on when looking from the outside of it. The only real place I see light from the outside is where the (2) zippers on the doors come together. The floor is black but there isn't really too much light that reaches there and even if it did the luminosity would be greatly depreciated before it got back to the leaves. I did have to prop the center of the tent with a 2x4 but I somewhat expected that with any tent of this size.
