CBD Crack is Green Crack’s more serious cousin. Sporting a 1:1 CBD to THC-ratio, this cannabadiol-rich strain not only grows short, it’s Fast Buds’ most versatile strain.
If you value stealth growing or just have limited space, autoflowering cannabis seeds can provide you with smooth, potent, and bountiful flowers that won’t outgrow their home. Instead of growing like trees, these strains grow like squat bushes packed with dense buds. Sometimes refered to as dwarf cannabis, modern autoflowers offer staggering yields and award-winning, high-THC buds withing 10-weeks of planting. With that in mind, let’s kick off our list at number 5!
Bigger is not always better. A supersized sativa may look great in photos, but what do you do when it starts to outgrow its tent? Get a bigger tent? Well, then how do you discreetly place that in your home? Nobody wants law enforcement banging their door down because their pot plant was too big to hide.
Bred with indoor stealth grows in mind, Grapefruit is dorm-room closet ganja par excellence. Reaching a modest 35-inches, or 90 centimeters, this strain offers a fruity, limonene-rich aroma unlike any strain you’ve tried before.
Who wants to get hyped! No strain provides a rush like Green Crack (sometimes called Green Crush). The original version of this legendary strain comes in both Sativa-dominant and Indica-dominant varieties. Fast Buds’ Autoflowering version is an almost perfect 50/50 hybrid that gives the rush of a sativa, while the indica relaxation eliminates paranoia and nervousness.
The well-balanced high pairs perfectly with it’s easy-to-hide frame. If you’re short on space and can only grow one strain at a time, Grapefruit is the perfect jack-of-all-trades.
Rhino Ryder is truly special. A Fast Buds’ original, we took strains from the popular Medicine Man/White Rhino lineage and crossed them with our autoflowers to create our shortest strain that packs buds with a punch. Once again, Tripaholic describes it perfectly, “[Rhino Rider’s] high is at first a nice cerebral hit to the head resulting in an instant mood uplift that has you giggly and lasts for about 30-40 mins then slowly the body gets it until you are in an almost narcotic daze. Perfect for aches and pains.”
Topping out at 35 inches, or 88 centimeters, Green Crack still offers massive yields, as you can see from the picture above. Green Crack offers a smooth, balanced experience, and fits nicely in a closet or space bucket (a kind of stealth grow box).
For each strain, we’ve included a link to a grow report/grow diary that illustrates one way (of many) to successfully grow each variety. Check them out for grow tips.

The ScrOG technique requires you to put a mesh wire screen between the soil and the light source. Once the branches grow through the screen, you can tie them to the screen to force them to grow horizontally, hence the name. With ScrOG you manage the height of the plant and all the tops get the same light. LST is a somewhat similar technique, where you tie your plants higher branches to the soil, forcing the plant to grow side branches and more colas, with the end result being a higher yield in a smaller space, perfect for micro growing.
- Around 12 liters and more: average plant height
- Around 5 liters: height of plant up to 60cm
- Around 2-3 liters: height up to 24cm
- Around ½ liter: height up to 13cm
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).
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.
Most plants you see occupy the same volume beneath the ground as above. The reason behind this is because the root system is vitally important to a plant, being the part of the plant where it takes up nutrients and water. The amount of space occupied by a plant’s root system has a great influence on the plant’s size. We can use this correlation to our advantage as micro growing is concerned. The volume of the pot you use to grow your plant in is directly related to how large the plant will grow. To give you an impression:
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.
Beginner growers need to know that a micro grow isn’t a worthy substitute for a real indoor or outdoor grow. But, it is perfect as a starting point to develop that green thumb and to learn about the important things you need for a good cannabis grow. Feel free to try out and experiment with new strains, techniques and instruments, as long as you treat your plants with care. The whole process of growing a plant is a reward in itself, not to mention the harvest, so what are you waiting for?
A thing to note is that due to the small quantity of soil your plants will need more fertilizer and water than regular plants.
Formed using parent strains White Indica and ruderalis, Easy Bud is able to produce significant yields relevant to her small stature. Indoor plants offer yields of up to 325g/m² and reach heights of between 50–60cm. Plants grown outdoors serve up yields of 30–80g/plant and grow to taller heights of 60–110cm. Easy Bud will be ready to try after only 8–9 weeks after putting seeds into soil.
