The Secret Jardin Monkey Fan is an innovative new product from the famous grow tent manufacturers. It measures 15cm (6 inches) across the blades and 20cm (8 inches) across the whole fan body. While there are a few other fans similar to this, the Monkey Fan differs slightly in its design and how you use it. Instead of a clip, it has a unique custom fitting that allows you to easily hang it from tent poles. This is a great idea as sometimes clip fans can slip of fall off through vibration or just under its own weight. The hook on the Monkey fan means it cannot fall off of vertical poles and it stays right where you want it. They are best on the vertical poles as this is what keeps them stable; they’ll just swing from the top poles. These fans have 2 speeds and also come with an alternative clip to convert it into a “regular” clip on fan.
Why should I use a Monkey Fan in my tent?
Fans in the grow room have a few benefits. They keep air around the plants fresh and ensure a steady flow of carbon dioxide to the leaf surfaces. The air movement across leaves also assists the plant in transpiration. This is the method by which the plant moves liquids about its system. More evaporation from the leaves means roots will take more water up and nutrients with it. More air movement means there will be less heat build ups in pockets around the garden. This helps keep temperatures even throughout and so the plants will be much healthier. A small investment on a fan or two can really boost the productivity of your garden!
