Where to Grow Weed in an Apartment

A closet provides a tiny and contained space to hide your cannabis plants and create a mini grow environment.

Apartments vary in layout, square footage, and height. Choosing the right grow space for your cannabis requires considering various factors. Here are the most common places to grow weed in an apartment and their pros and cons.


Let’s start with the most crucial factor to consider before you start growing weed in an apartment. Marijuana users must be familiar with the latest local and state laws, as well as any rental agreement provisions about the home cultivation of cannabis.

If a tenant has repeatedly breached smoke-free rules contained in a tenancy agreement, and approaching the tenant directly has not resolved the issue, the landlord may give the tenant at least 10 days’ written notice to terminate the tenancy agreement. If the tenant refuses to leave, the landlord may make an application to a rental officer asking for an eviction order.

Smoke-free clauses can be included at the start of a new tenancy agreement or added to an existing tenancy agreement if the landlord and tenant agree in writing to an amendment. If a tenancy agreement made prior to June 1, 2018 (the day of assent for f Bill 6) prohibits the smoking of tobacco products but is silent on the smoking of cannabis, it will be considered to also prohibit the smoking of cannabis. As a result of an amendment added to the Residential Tenancies Act by Bill 6, a landlord now has the authority to notify a tenant in writing that cultivation is prohibited in a rental premises even if the existing lease does not deal with this.

Residential property owners have legal authority to make their properties and premises smoke free. A provision has been added to the [Residential Tenancies Act][ to specifically provide that if a tenancy agreement entered into before the day Bill 6 received assent (June 1, 2018) restricts the smoking of tobacco, then that same restriction applies to the smoking of cannabis.
