The Secret Jardin Monkey Fan is a neat little fan that does a great job of moving air around your grow space, especially if you’re in a grow tent and floor space is at a premium. It features a unique attachment that allows you to clip it to your grow tent poles with zero chance of it falling off onto your plants. This attachment keeps the fan off the floor while allowing space behind the fan so that proper air oscillation and movement can take place without touching the tent walls.
The 8 Inch Secret Jardin Monkey Fan is ideal for keeping the air circulating in a small area such as a grow tent. The problem with typical clip-on fans is that they don’t attach all that well to grow tent poles. The Monkey Fan holds itself securely in mid-air without taking up valuable floor-space. It is set proud of the tent walls allowing more air movement behind the fan, thus producing better airflow across the plant canopy. Unlike many clip-on type fans, the Secret Jardin Monkey Fan oscillates, creating a natural wind effect to promote the stronger branch and stem growth. The main body can be tilted up or down using the screw and nut so that it points in the right direction. The Monkey Fan has 2 speeds, creates very little noise and uses only 20 watts of power!
Connect the fan and pole attachment together using the locking screw and nut fitting. Once connected, place the Secret Jardin Monkey Fan at the desired height and location and clip it onto your grow tent pole. The pole attachment has a metal rod that links to the back of your tent pole to help hold the fan in place along with the plastic clip itself. Rotate and tilt the fan head on its pivot so that it is pointing in the correct direction. Plug the fan into a mains outlet and then switch the fan to “1” for a light breeze or to “2” for a stronger flow of air. The switch can be set back to “0” to switch the fan off again.

Your grow room needs fans all year round, no matter what the temperatures are like outside – they are always beneficial. They help with a variety of different problems that might otherwise arise and don’t just work to cool a room down. Ways they can help include:
- To Circulate the Air In Your Grow Room
- To Remove Excess Heat & Hot Spots
- To Control Humidity
- To Prevent Pests and Diseases
- To Control CO2
- To Circulate the Air In Your Grow Room
Outside, plants are going to encounter wind at some point. However, the wind never blows in the same direction for very long, and so you want to avoid having a static fan blowing. Oscillating fans and others that have movement are ideal for creating a more natural air circulation. You can place two fans in opposite corners to create a circulating vacuum of air.
To Remove Excess Heat & Hot Spots
Your grow room can easily get too warm depending on the conditions outside and within the area, you are growing. Grow lights emit heat, and whilst it may not feel like much to you, a slight increase in temperature can really affect your plants.
Some grow lights emit more heat than others but even with lights known to run cooler such as air-cooled lighting and LEDs, it is still wise to have fans blowing. They will help to keep the general temperatures lower and help with air exchange.
To Control Humidity
Another factor that can create problems in a grow room is humidity. Plants release water vapour throughout the day and this increases the humidity. If this level isn’t controlled, the growing conditions will decline.
A good ventilation system will help to wick away some of the water released during transpiration. This allows your plants to absorb more water and pull up nutrients through their root systems, which in effect helps with boosting growth.
To Prevent Pests and Diseases
Good air circulation will help to prevent pests and diseases taking hold. Stagnant and humid conditions are preferred of mould, powdery mildew, spider mites and fungus gnats. And we don’t want any of those to get in!
A steady breeze thanks to a few fans also makes it harder for the pests to establish themselves on the plants.
To Control CO2
Plants need outside air for one very basic reason: CO2. This is absorbed naturally throughout the day as part of a plant’s nutrient cycle. With a sealed grow tent set-up, the level of CO2 will gradually decrease, and this will limit growth.
Ventilation brings in the fresh air and fresh CO2 from outside whilst removing the old air from your grow room.
“The clip on these fans is the best you’ll get, at least in the UK – dodge those other “desk clip fans”, these are the one you want. They do sometimes need a bit of maintenance but they are second to none simply for the pole clips as far as I’m concerned.”
“good airflow and only ones I could find that attach to pole, clip dose stretch to larger poles and hasn’t broken on me yet having been move a lot never has it sliden down either but agree it could come with bigger clips and spares as its a weak point but due to no competition if you require one for poles these work well”
“Easy and quick set up, cheap to run but 2 or three in 1m squared space would be needed, worth the money easy to ajjust height and great oscillation.“
