Growing marijuana in small spaces

While cannabis cultivation has undergone rapid changes in methodology and technology over the last decade, many of the basics remain unchanged. Both commercial producers and hobbyist growers must follow the baseline principals of controlled environment agriculture to find success, including understanding basic growroom design as well as the function of essential cultivation equipment.

Growroom & Grow Tent Environmental Constraints

Airflow is your best tool for dealing with heat and humidity while growing cannabis in a small space.

Cannabis Cultivation Equipment

As the cannabis species is native to dry and arid climates, plants do best with humidity levels less than 50 percent. The confines of a small space make fluctuations in humidity levels immediately apparent, so your chosen irrigation method will directly influence the ambient humidity in a small space. Unfortunately for cannabis growers, high humidity levels offer the perfect propagation environment for such pathogens as powdery mildew and botrytis (bud rot).

Other types of pruning and manipulation such as Low Stress Training (LST) and Supercropping (extreme bending) can be used to create almost any size or shape plant

Initiate 12/12 when your plant is about half the final desired size

Restricting root size also restricts overall plant size

1.) Genetics

These plants were grown in a 2’x2’x3′ tent under a HLG 100W Rspec Quantum Board LED

Bending and tying down stems can be used to keep a cannabis plant almost totally flat

This is my very first short plant, grown under a few big CFLs.
