🇺🇸 USA, We are coming soon ⏤ 🌱 Be the first to know

Not every grower wants to raise tree-sized sativa specimens. In fact, many cannabis cultivators opt for the smallest possible plants they can find. But why sacrifice huge, sprawling canopies for tiny and compact ones? For one, smaller plants are easier to conceal, making them ideal for those looking to keep their grow on the down-low; you’re much less likely to attract unwanted attention with tiny plants.

Small plants are also a pleasure to manage. If you’re growing strictly for personal use, why wrestle to tame a giant when you can set up perpetual harvests with small, well-behaved varieties? If you’re seeking small plants with big buds, then you’ve come to the right place. Below are the top 10 small weed plants perfect for modified cupboards, mini tents, small pots and stealthy outdoor guerrilla grows. Fill up your stash jars while keeping your horticultural hobby private.

1. Royal Dwarf

It doesn’t take a detective to determine the inspiration behind Royal Dwarf's name. This mini weed plant tops out at a height of 70cm indoors and 90cm outdoors. However, growers can easily bump these numbers down to 40cm and 50cm, respectively, with a bit of topping and LST. When harvest time rolls around—after about 9–10 weeks post-germination—expect a return of up to 200g/m² indoors or 80g/plant outdoors.

Our breeders managed to create this small strain by crossing legendary Skunk genetics with an especially compact Cannabis ruderalis strain. As such, Royal Dwarf is the perfect candidate for growing in a confined space such as a cupboard or converted computer tower. Size aside, this cultivar serves up a THC level of 13% and terpenes boasting flavours of earthiness and Skunk. Enjoy a subtle high that inspires a surge in creativity and motivation—perfect for daytime use.

2. Quick One

Quick One isn’t just stealthy and small; it’s also one of the fastest strains in our entire collection. After sowing seeds, you can expect to start harvesting, trimming, and drying these flowers just nine weeks down the line. Indoor plants peak at around 50–60cm, whereas their outdoor counterparts hit around 60–100cm. With harvests of 275–325g/m² indoors and 100–150g/plant outdoors, growers are generously rewarded for little effort.

Quick One’s hardy, old-school indica genetics and small build make it the ideal choice for a clandestine guerrilla grow. Plants can fend for themselves for long periods, and they'll never pop their heads above the surrounding foliage. Once you’ve dried and cured these flowers, you’ll enjoy a relaxing physical high accented by flavours of citrus, earthiness, and fruit for weeks to come.

3. Royal AK Automatic

AK-47 stands among the pantheon of legendary cannabis strains. The original variety stems from a diverse mix of landraces and lands a heavy stoning blow to the body. Now, thanks to the hard work of our breeders, you can enjoy the best traits of AK-47 in a small and fast-growing package. If you’re low on space, you can still enjoy everything this variety has to offer with Royal AK Auto. Indoor plants reach 60–70cm (70–100cm outdoors), and it only takes a bit of LST and main-lining to keep them at the smaller end of the spectrum.

Despite its small size, Royal AK Auto still manages to pump out impressive yields. After 11–12 weeks from seed, indoor plants produce 275–350g/m², while outdoor plants offer 110–160g/plant. When it comes time to smoke, Royal AK Auto delivers a euphoric and joyous high defined by waves of physical relaxation and endless giggles. This comes in tandem with a spicy, earthy, sour aroma and flavour that results in the perfect savoury smoke.

4. Royal Creamatic

Royal Creamatic proves that you don’t have to sacrifice quality when settling for small cannabis strains. By crossing the delicious Cream Caramel with a compact ruderalis specimen, RQS breeders created one of the tastiest and speediest varieties in our catalogue. Whether you’re planning to grow in a corner of your bedroom or a concealed area of the garden, Royal Creamatic will maintain a low profile throughout its 12-week life cycle; indoor plants can be kept as small as 60cm, and outdoor plants as tiny as 80cm.

Royal Creamatic’s large and resinous buds look as good as they smell, and aromas of candy and pepper make them almost irresistible during the late flowering stage. At the end of the growing cycle, get ready for yields of 450g/m² indoors and 165g/plant outdoors, followed by a tranquil and pleasant high fuelled by a THC level of 15%.

5. Diesel Automatic

Small size. Fruity flavours. Legendary ancestors. Diesel Automatic appeals to just about every grower seeking reliable results from a small weed plant. You can grow this variety almost anywhere indoors—literally. Maxing out at heights as low as 40cm, you can position this specimen inside cupboards, boxes, computer towers, and buckets. As long as you provide ample light, Diesel Automatic will churn out at least 325g/m² indoors. If you prefer growing outside, surround this lady with companion plants such as dill and basil to keep her completely concealed, and prepare to harvest up to 110g/plant around 13 weeks after sowing seeds.

The only thing not discreet about Diesel Automatic is its strong spicy-sour aroma. Although not as pungent as the original Diesel, you can still expect max flavour. And then, of course, you can anticipate an indulgent, invigorating high from this specimen.

6. Critical Kush

This feminized cultivar brings high levels of THC and large yields to the table. Granted, given its photoperiod nature, it doesn’t finish as fast as the autoflowering strains mentioned above. Still, a flowering period of 8–10 weeks is nothing too serious. And what it lacks in pure speed it more than makes up for in productivity. Height-wise, Critical Kush won’t exceed 100cm indoors and 140cm outdoors, and she’ll pump out up to 550g/m² and 550g/plant, respectively.

Critical Kush’s relatively small stature makes her appealing to many growers, but her high THC content, medium CBD levels, and abundance of earthy, fruity, and piney terpenes really seal the deal. Gear up for a long-lasting and stoning high that’ll melt you into the couch.

7. Candy Kush Express

What happens when you cross OG Kush with Sweet Special? You get Candy Kush Express, of course! This brilliant variety features the best traits from both parents. The legendary OG Kush endowed it with high levels of the stoning terpene myrcene, whereas Sweet Special brought sugary notes to the table. Candy Kush Express will meet your desire for something sweet and stoning, even if you’re hard-pressed for space, or time for that matter.

Indoors, this strain peaks at 60–100cm and produces an impressive 475–525g/m² in only 7–9 weeks of flowering! Now you know where the “Express” comes from in its name! If you opt to grow outdoors, expect plants to reach heights of 100–170cm and deliver up to 500g/plant in late September. You can keep specimens on the shorter end outdoors by topping and trellising.

8. Speedy Chile

Looking to harvest in a hurry? Need to set up and take down your growing operation as quickly as possible, without compromising on yield? Speedy Chile is the solution to your problem. This indica-dominant lady dishes out indoor yields of up to 525g/m² and outdoor returns of 450–500g/plant after a brief flowering time of 7–8 weeks (early September harvest outdoors). The best part? With a little training, you can keep indoor plants as small as 60cm, and outdoor plants as small as 100cm.

As the offspring of Early Skunk, Skunk, and Chile Indica, this stoning cultivar possesses a THC level of 16% and a pleasant mix of fruity, peppery, and piney terpenes. Despite its moderate potency, you should gear yourself up for a hearty, long-lasting stone from this discreet plant.

9. Mother Gorilla

We don’t want to toot our own horn too much, but Mother Gorilla is truly something special. This strain exhibits a compact stature, gorgeous flowers displaying shades of red and brown, and a massive THC level of 23% that will leave you creative, motivated, and euphoric for hours.

As the lovechild of impressive parents, namely Gorilla Glue 4 and Reina Madre, you might find it hard to believe that you can grow this variety in a tiny tent or on a small balcony. Indoor plants reach heights of 60–100cm and produce 450–500g/m² after 9–10 weeks of flowering, whereas outdoor plants climb to slightly taller heights of 140–180cm and offer 500–550g/plant in mid-October. After harvesting, drying, and curing Mother Gorilla's buds, you’ll enjoy a euphoric high flavoured by dank, skunky, and chocolatey terpenes.

10. Haze Berry

Haze Berry is a compact plant that delivers consistent and tasty yields. In crossing Blueberry with Shining Silver Haze, our breeders leveraged genetics from two legends to create a potent and deeply relaxing variety. It’ll grow happily in a small tent and, if treated to high-powered lights and a consistent feeding schedule, pumps out 525–575g/m² in 9–11 weeks of bloom without exceeding 60–100cm in height. Outdoors, plants naturally climb a little higher but shouldn’t exceed 180cm. If left to grow uninhibited, they can deliver up to 650g/plant in late October.

Haze Berry is indeed a compact and high-yielding cultivar, but it’s perhaps best known for its flavour, followed by its relaxing, powerful high. With delicious fruity terpenes and a THC content of 20%, it’s hard to knock Haze Berry where it counts.
