A thing to note is that due to the small quantity of soil your plants will need more fertilizer and water than regular plants.
You probably thought about growing your own weed sometimes, but concluded that it’s too much of a hassle? Look no further, micro growing has everything you’re looking for and more.
Quick One is another compact cannabis strain that can be grown in complete privacy. Most autoflowering varieties have fast flowering times, but Quick One has a real lust for speed. This child of Lowryder 1 and Old School Indica is capable of erupting into a fully mature specimen only 8 weeks after germination. If you want rapid turnover of indica-dominant flowers, then she’s your strain. A THC content of 13% offers a chilled body high this is great for relaxing in the evening without becoming stoned out of your mind. These pleasant effects go hand-in-hand with flavours of sweetness and citrus.
The movement of air is necessary to a grow, because CO2-rich air is quickly depleted and that is a requirement for your plant’s photosynthetic process, which causes new plant cells to grow. The heated air due to the lighting needs to get out of the grow too, as it dries out the plants. Usually, table fans are used in indoor grows, combined with ventilation systems, but that is probably not practical for your micro grow. A neat solution is a computer fan. You put one at a low point that will act as your intake fan and put another one in a higher position to act as an exhaust fan. This way, as heat rises, the hot air will come out first, replacing it with cooler and fresher air. Don’t forget to use some kind of filters on the fans which will help you battle unwanted pests and odors.
It doesn’t take a genius to figure out how this strain received her name. Easy Bud is the perfect beginner strain, and even better for those wanting to start out low-key, gaining as little attention as possible. This strain goes mostly unnoticed wherever she is grown, reaching an average height of 50cm. This makes it possible to grow her within down-low attic spaces, empty cupboards, and hidden corners of the garden. Easy Bud features primarily indica genetics and provides a very subtle and mellow effect that chills users out and stimulates the appetite. A THC level of 12% makes Easy Bud even more suitable for beginners. Her flowers are loaded with tastes of citrus and herbs, making her a fine addition to some low-intensity edibles.
But, fear not, this is one of the reasons we have fluorescent tubes and CFLs. They are very similar and both have a great light output, don’t dissipate much heat and are available in different light colours. You can help your cannabis plant with different light colours – a plant in the vegetative state needs more blue light, while a flowering plant requires more red light.
Royal Dwarf truly is a miniature cannabis specimen that can remain at tiny sizes of 40cm tall when trained in the ways mentioned above. This plant was bred for one reason and one reason only: stealth. Growers can easily cultivate multiple Royal Dwarf plants in their home without a single suspicion being raised. She can easily be grown within modified kitchen cupboards, wardrobes, boxes, and computer towers. Small LED lights can also be used within these tiny spaces to avoid giving off too much heat. Royal Dwarf is essentially the autoflowering version of the legendary Skunk, and was made using a Skunk strain along with a specific ruderalis cultivar. She offers stimulating but subtle sativa highs fuelled by THC quantities of 13%. She can therefore be smoked all day long whilst allowing the user to stay on top of their game and not get too high. Her small yet compact flowers offer sweet and citrus tastes.
It was mentioned before, that space is the main difference between micro growing and a regular indoor grow. This lack of space usually calls for shorter and bushier plants, which is shown in the choosing of the right strain. There are other ways to influence a plants growth, such as various growing techniques: topping, super cropping,screen of green (ScrOG) and low stress training (LST).
As cannabis and its cultivation is more popular than ever and it seems that trend won’t stop soon, we see more and more people wanting to grow their own cannabis. Most beginners to growing don’t have the necessary experience or knowledge to start a full-blown indoor or outdoor growing operation, so they opt for a simpler option – a micro grow. Take a couple of seeds and plant them in a cupboard or a similarly small space, trying to get the best possible results of it – or in other words – micro growing. It is a natural way for beginner growers to get that needed experience and to experiment with no fear of ruining a big and expensive operation. This article will cover the basics of micro growing and the differences between it and a standard indoor grow, so let’s get started.
