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.
Note that these figures are just estimates, and the exact size of your cannabis plants will vary depending on their genetics. Also, keep in mind that plants grown in small containers will need to be fed and watered more regularly than plants grown in larger containers with access to more soil.
Finding the Right Grow Light
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).
Alternatively, we recommend using any small 60W LED panel for your micro grow. Depending on just how small of a space you’re growing in, you’ll likely never need to keep this panel running at 100% capacity. We recommend keeping it at 25–50% to help control your plant’s stretch during veg, then turning it up to 50–75% during bloom, depending on the plant’s stretch. You can also control the panel’s light schedule using a controller, which is app-operated.
Furthermore, during the flowering phase sativas undergo a 200-300% increase in height, while Indicas increase only by 50-100%, which shows that indicas are more compatible with micro growing.
It can be pretty challenging to grow Girl Scout Cookies Auto seeds for beginners but a breeze for growers with prior growing experience. GSC auto grow in mild climates and excel both indoors and outdoors. Girl Scout Cookies dwarf weed seeds produce short plants with a brief flowering period that lasts from 56 to 63 days. The yields are pretty decent for someone growing for personal use as indoor cultivation produces 1.6 – 2 oz/ft² (500 – 600 g/m²), while outdoor crop yields about 2.5 – 5 oz (70 – 150 gr) per plant.
Their short stature makes it ideal for growing in various places. Their best feature is their ability to thrive in tight spaces, meaning that you can cultivate them in closets, garages, balconies, or between other plants. Better yet, small cannabis plants are highly tolerant of a range of weather conditions because of their Ruderalis lineage.
Where To Grow Dwarf Weed Seeds?
Royal Dwarf is the shortest autoflower strain and a blend of Skunk No. 1 and Ruderalis genetics. The strain’s genetic composition is 10% Indica, 60% Sativa, and 30% Ruderalis. Royal Dwarf seeds plants reach a maximum height of 2 feet (60 cm), making them ideal for indoor cultivation.
These small cannabis seeds are among the first autoflowering strains got with the help of the original autoflowering strain, Lowryder. The strain contains some Northern Lights, Williams Wonder, and Mexican Ruderalis genetics. Irrespective of the plant’s small and compact nature it yields pretty high yields, with indoor plants producing about 1 oz/ft² (300 g/m²). On the other hand, outdoor crops produce up to 5 oz (150 gr) per plant.
Quik One is classified among the fastest-growing autoflowering dwarf seeds. These dwarf seeds are easy to grow, and their flowering period lasts from 5 to 6 weeks. These dwarf autoflower seeds thrive in cold climates, and their short statues of about 1.5 feet (50 cm) make it possible to grow this strain both indoors and outdoors.
