Photoperiod feminised cannabis seeds can show quite a variation in plant heights. Buy some Haze seeds, or a jungle sativa like Desfrán and you may find that the plants will fill all available space. In unrestricted conditions, many sativa seeds will comfortably reach 1.5 m tall, or much more. If you’re looking to grow short height strains from feminised seeds then indica or indica-leaning hybrid strains are the best choices. These can often stay below a metre in height.
The yields are notably heavy. Just because you are growing a short cannabis plant doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on yield. With a well optimised grow room (and especially with a good quality LED grow light) you definitely don’t need to compromise on harvest quantity. In fact, short height cannabis strains are often preferred by many legal, licensed cannabis producers. That’s because small cannabis plants are ideal for stacked, multi-level grow operations where 2 (or even 3) levels of plants are grown with LED bar grow lights. This is a recipe for very high levels of productivity.
