Micro grows typically call for smaller, bushier plants. In order to achieve this kind of structure and produce decent harvests in such small spaces, you’ll want to employ some growing techniques like LST, HST or ScrOG, and Defoliation. Below, we’ll share some basic tips on how to adapt these techniques to a micro grow setup.
If you decide to build your own micro grow setup, all you’ll need to keep your space ventilated is a small outtake fan, like this high-speed cooling fan, for example, will let a constant influx of fresh air into your micro grow space.
When it comes to micro growing, choosing the right strain is very important due to the limited space available. One of the things to watch out for is the height of your cannabis strain. Sativas grow higher and more slender than indicas, which tend to be short and bushy.
The minimum amount of space you’ll need to grow weed in a micro setup is 35 × 35 × 75cm. To accommodate the lack of space in a micro grow, you’ll have to make minor adjustments to your lighting and ventilation, the strains you choose to grow, your medium, and your watering/feeding schedule.
Finally, the cost of setting up your micro grow box/room will vary greatly. If you choose to build your own micro grow space, you may be able to do so relatively cheaply (keep in mind that your LED panel will easily be the biggest upfront cost).
Luckily, ventilating a cannabis micro grow space is easy.
One common question micro growers face is this; where do I place my grow lights?
Here we have selected compact, short, and even “dwarf” cannabis strains, all of which rarely exceed one meter (3’3”) in height. These small-growing weed seeds are more than suitable for both indoor and outdoor cultivation enthusiasts.
Experienced cannabis growers assure us that short strains have more pros than cons. These pros include:
Short Marijuana Plants: Indoor or Outdoor-Suitable?
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!
The potential levels of THC in these small weed plant seeds are also up there with their larger counterparts! Browse the collection, and you’ll see THC levels that easily go over 20%.
Most of the small weed plant seeds on this list are autoflowering strains, which is no surprise, as this cannabis type is known for its short stature:
