Towering sativa strains have the potential to surge to heights of 300cm. Growers can limit vertical growth by planting them in small containers, but they won’t produce as good of a yield as strains specifically bred for indoor cultivation.
Indoor growing makes life easier for many cannabis cultivators. If you live in a cold climate with bad weather, or your garden lacks direct sunlight, indoor grow tents provide a safe haven. The ability to manipulate the light schedule, humidity, and nutrients with precision allows growers to raise weed on their own terms.
Technically, yes. All strains can be grown indoors—although some varieties are much more suited to this environment than others. Bushy indica and autoflowering strains rarely exceed 120cm in height, and are thus naturally compatible with small spaces.

Our Northern Light strain descends from a premium cutting and features a completely pure indica genetic profile. Her bushy growth and medium size make her an ideal candidate for indoor cultivation.
This award-winning cannabis strain stems from the West Coast of the United States. Breeders created Northern Lights using indica genetics from Afghanistan.
She forms a dense, bushy canopy loaded with colas. Left unchecked, she’ll reach a height of 160cm. Growers can keep her even lower to the ground, at around 100cm, through training techniques such as LST and ScrOG.
After reducing the light cycle and triggering flowering, Northern Light will produce a canopy full of mature flowers in 8–9 weeks. Her dense flowers possess a respectable THC content of 18% alongside a complex palette of citrusy, earthy, fruity, and peppery terpenes.
