The main reason that growers choose marijuana varieties that grow to only a short height is growing space. If you live in a small apartment, or your garden is tiny, or perhaps you only have small balcony available for cultivation, then you just won’t have the space to grow the larger types.

Of course, any marijuana strain can be pruned to keep it short, but many types will
So we’re looking for plants that don’t grow too tall, but still produce a high-grade harvest of good buds. Often this means you’ll be looking for strains that have some Ruderalis genetics in them as well as the more common Sativa and Indica genetics. These plants are autoflowering so there’s no need to force flowering by light regime changes – they’ll do well under 18 or even 20 hours of light each day.
not respond well if you prune them too hard, and you’ll end up with few buds and a low-quality harvest.
