Growing other plants in same tent

Is there any positive or negative to growing other plants in the tent with your plants? Obviously in their own containers, but can I plants vegetables like peppers to be grown in the same grow tent as my blueberry mj plant?

Sure but only if they don’t compete for light space and like same conditions don’t attract pests etc…


My thought was some type of pepper.

I know in a regular garden, if you plant hot peppers and sweet banana peppers close together- the sweet peppers take on some of the hot taste of the hot peppers. Just wondering if it’s due to the pollination process?

@dmykins I actually am doing what you’re suggesting. I have green peppers, one tomato, and romaine lettuce in the same tent. The romaine lettuce is a little stringy from not enough light, but the peppers are doing great. Had an aphid outbreak, (I dont know where they came from, purchased brand new FFOF) so I had to remove and treat them. That may not happen to you, but it did to me. Remember to use pest control prevention anyways. I’ll get some great peppers soon. I highly recommend it. But as @Donaldj said as it doesn’t compete for space or light for for it. I happen to have extra room in my tent my first grow. Next grow after the kinks have been worked out, the tent will be full.
Happy growing!


@Covertgrower how large is your tent? I have a small tent, but thinking if I get a large enough one then I can grow veggies that I use on an everyday basis.

@dmykins my tent is 8X4. The cost was only $50 more for that size compared to $100 for 4X4. I figured size for the price why not? Next grow I may not have enough room, in the end of the flowering phase.

You’ll be surprised at how little produce you get from a grow tent. This is why people who actually want to live off their vegetable gardens don’t plant a 4’ x 8’ area. A couple of meals and it’s all gone.
