small cannabis plant seeds

The root system is a crucial part of the plant, and its size has a great influence on how tall the plant will grow. Most plants tend to occupy the same amount of space below the ground as they do above. In a micro grow, we can use this correlation between the size of the root system (thus, the amount of medium) and plant size to control the growth of our cannabis plants and match it to our spatial limitations.

Thanks to new and improved grow gear (especially grow lights) and an increase in knowledge concerning the cannabis plant, micro growers are able to churn out great harvests in extremely small spaces.

Finding the Right Grow Light

Of course, some genetics are more suited to micro growing than others, and the following three are prime examples of quality picks. You’ll notice these strains all have something in common: they’re autoflowering.

For micro growing, we generally recommend sticking to 3l pots. However, we’ve seen some growers working with slightly larger spaces use up to 9l pots. How big or small you choose to go with your pots is up to you; just keep in mind that using bigger pots will likely restrict the number of plants you can grow (but more plants won’t necessarily translate to a bigger micro grow yield).

Screen of green is another of our favourite training techniques, and you’ll be glad to know you can take advantage of it even in small micro cannabis gardens. If you’re working with a narrow vertical space with lateral lights, for example, using a vertical screen can be one of the best ways to create a big canopy that receives a ton of light.

Outdoor plants tend to be larger than indoor plants regardless, so discreet outdoor growers may therefore want to pick short cannabis strains that will stay relatively small. Tall grass and close-growing shrubs will easily hide the plantation of short weed plants from prying eyes!

Small size doesn’t have to mean small yields! This lineup of short-height strains features varieties capable of rewarding a caring gardener with up to 650g/m 2 (2.13oz/ft 2 ) indoors, up to 800g (1.8lb) per plant outdoors, and up to 1kg (2.2lbs) in a greenhouse!

Tips for Growing Small Cannabis Strains

The final height of the plant is extremely important. This is especially true for indoor growers, as it directly affects how much vertical height is required in the tent, and therefore the number of lights and their intensity. A compact cannabis strain with good genetics will always stay under the height indicated by the breeder, which means there’ll be no danger of light burn or light stress if you plan your tent correctly.

Whether you’re an indoor or outdoor grower, the final size of your cannabis is extremely important. Not everyone has the privilege of being able to grow monster trees in their backyard, whether for security or legal purposes, so this collection is best suited to those looking for small marijuana plants that still pack a punch!

Here at Herbies, you get the unbeatable advantage of multiplying your short weed seed haul with extra free seeds added to every order! And don’t forget about our stealth shipping option that’s perfect for discreet growers – no one will ever know what’s inside the unmarked package you receive.

Of course, you need to choose your cannabis seeds as carefully as the grow method. Autoflower seeds in general are a good option for the indoor cultivator looking to make a high quality small indoor weed grow.

One other tip for those wanting to grow cannabis in the smallest spaces is to consider the type of grow light you use. A 1000W HPS may deliver great yields, but you will often be forced to maintain a large gap of up to a metre between your light and the plant canopy. This isn’t ideal for those with the smallest grow rooms and limited vertical space.
A modern LED light with several light bars, however, can be placed perhaps just 15-20cm above your canopy. This is much more convenient and allows you to utilise significantly more of your grow room for your plants.
