Today we’re going to talk about the 10 best seeds for indoor growing; strains that will live up to your expectations, producing hard and dense buds that every grower wants to see on their plants. You can get the absolute best yields with these strains and you definitely won’t be disappointed, even if this is your first time growing.
Today we’re going to talk about the key strains for a successful indoor grow, as well as their amazing flavors and aromas.
Melon Gum :
Melon Gum is a strain by Dr. Underground that offers extremely flavorful buds in a short flowering period. At the beginning this plant grows extremely similar to lettuce, with wide leaves and round, although as the grow advances they grow some more and start looking more like cannabis. You can plant around 9-16 in a 1.2×1.2 grow tent. To get the most out of this strain you should prune the lower branches and leave just the central stem and 4-6 branches below it to be able to plant all 16 in the allotted space. It begins flowering at around two weeks after switching the light period, and in just 7 weeks your plant will be ready to harvest. It has quite a relaxing effect and its colors are eye-catching towards the end of the flowering period. You’ll be able to see the resin from a distance on these plants’ buds and even all over the bigger leaves, making it perfect for extracts that are amazing in both quality and flavor. The buds on this plant are dense and hard; everyone should try this strain at least once.
Critical + :
This is most likely the most planted in indoor grows, mostly due to the amazing yield that it gives in extremely small spaces. This plant concentrates all of its production on the upper part. You can plant around 16 Critical + per square meter, but you’ll need to properly prune the lower branches so that the main stem can produce more buds. When growing it doesn’t seem like it’s going to grow that tall, but when switched to the flowering period it rapidly stretches, growing up to 4 times bigger, so you’ll need to use stakes or wires to make sure it doesn’t double over with the weight of the buds on top. They grow to around 1.2m tall when they’re done, and you can get 550g from just one square meter of grow with the 16 plants we mentioned before. You can also plant clones and set them directly to flower in this formation. It has a citric flavor, and a little bit of this weed goes a long way. The only downside to this strain is that because so many people plant it, people have gotten kind of bored of it.
Northern Lights :
This is another strain that won’t disappoint if planted correctly and taken care off. Northern Lights by Sensi Seeds is a plant that, unlike the previous ones, concentrates most of its production on the branches. Don’t place too many plants; 9 per square meter under a 600w light should be more than enough to get a decent yield, and even four properly pruned plants are enough to get 500g per square meter. It takes a while for the growth to really catch on, but once it starts it won’t stop. If you prune it, you’ll need to switch it to flowering after two weeks even if it seems small. It will grow long, amazing buds on the branches that are dense and covered in resin. The flavor is earthy, and enough to satiate even the toughest of smokers. The smoke is dense and will fill your mouth with amazing flavors. You should have your harvest ready in just 9 flowering weeks.
Tutankhamon by Pyramid Seeds is a selection of AK47’s that has amazing flowering power; however the flavor is nothing like the original. When it grows it grows wide and strong right from the start, and when you switch it to the flowering lights it stays nice and short, so there’s no need to top it. This strain should produce enough with just 4 plants per square meter (due to how wide it is). Each plant should easily reach 80g, and if you put your back into it you can get even more. It takes 9-10 weeks to flower, and it has an amazing quantity of resin that leaves the buds nice and shiny. This is one of my personal favorites.
Original Cheese :
There are many different Cheese strains on the market, and one of the best ones is the Original Cheese by Dinafem. This strain offers yellowish buds that are bursting with flavor and aroma. It grows quite like a Skunk strain, quite stretched out, so 9-16 plants per square meter is enough, and leaving just the central stem and a few lower leaves is a good idea for this set up. Another method that’s good for this strain is to plant them in 12/12 right after germinating, as they grow into one long cola of buds with 4 small branches, making it the perfect size for planting many plants and getting the maximum yield. The buds are fine, although hard and heavy; they might not look like much but you’ll get quite a heavy yield from a small amount. The buds open up quite a lot when ground, and if you have a pollen container in your grinder after a few joints you should have enough to roll one with the precious resin of this plant. It has quite a relaxing effect even though it’s 70% sativa. If you decide to grow this strain make sure you have a decent odor filter to avoid any issues.
Power Plant :
Power Plant by Dutch Passion is a strain that’s available in both feminized and regular seeds; it gives some nice looking plants with some even nicer smoke. It leaves a strong sweet cannabis smell, and although it’s a complete sativa it grows like an indica in shape and speed. When it’s in the veg stage you can’t really tell that it’s a sativa at all, but when it begins flowering it acquires a lighter color and it turns into a mass of white, sticky pistils that will make the plant practically shine. It takes around 9-10 weeks to flower after flipping the lights, and its buds are long, hard and sticky, similar to Critical +. If you plant this strain it will most likely turn into one of your favorite strains to grow indoors. Even though it’s a sativa you can easily fit 9 plants per square meter thanks to its compact height.
This plant will show you exactly how cannabis can taste super sweet, as it’s one of the most flavorful sweet strains that you can find on the market. If you were to have a nug of Txomango by Genehtik in your pocket walking down the street, people would notice you more than those annoying people that play their music at full volume in public. When you grow Txomango indoors it will grow nice and compact with a short distance between nodes and plenty of branches, which means that it needs a good amount of space to grow the branches properly. Bending or doing a FIM prune is a good idea with this strain, allowing you to plant just 4 plants per square meter which will guarantee a decent yield of long and stretched out buds full of sweet flavors. It’s mainly sativa, so it’s great for smoking during the day as it won’t interfere too much in your day to day activities. This strain is one of those that people smoke mostly for the flavor rather than the effect. In just 10 weeks of flowering your harvest should be ready, and you can get around 400g per square meter with 9 plants or 4 properly pruned plants.
Green Poison :
Sweet Seeds offers us one of the most powerful cerebral effects that I have ever experienced; Green Poison will leave you in an amazingly stoned mental state. This strain grows tall, with long branches, so they’re perfect for growing from clones in a SOG set up to get the most weight out of the yield. Grown from seeds this strain takes up a lot of space for the amount of cannabis it produces, and the lower branches never fully develop as the light can’t reach them properly. What you’ll need to do is place 4 plants per square meter, and if you correctly prune the branches you can get absolute balls of bud that, if grown using the SOG system, can reward growers with up to 600g per square meter. The buds are resinous and spongy like chewing gum; it takes a while for them to dry. Once they’re dry and cured you’ll have some maximum potency buds in your possession, with a strong effect and some Diesel like flavors.
Blue Cheese :
Blue Cheese by Barney’s Farm has been out a good while now, but now after so many people have planted it, it’s gotten much more famous for its exotic aspect and taste. It’s a mix of Blueberry x Cheese, giving it an extremely fresh aroma and flavor, similar to berries, with some fine and heavy Cheese-like buds. It grows compact and short, so 9-16 plants under 600w should be enough to get a decent yield, and it takes 65 days to flower, a total of 80 days after flipping the lights. It takes a while to flower but once you see the beautiful blueish buds you’ll realize that the wait was definitely worth it. Its leaves are also beautifully covered in resin, and they end up completely full with resin making them perfect for BHO extracts.
Somango #47 :
Somango #47 is a strain for all of those unfortunate growers who tend to have horrible powdery mildew issues in theyr grows. When you plant Somango #47 by Positronics you can rest assured that this plant won’t get any mildew even if it’s surrounded by plants that have it. It grows with wide leaves and a strong trunk, with some long branches that reach the top of the plant quite quickly, and both the central cola and the branches are extremely productive. You can place 16 plants straight into 12/12 to grow out that nice central stem, or you can clone it and use a SOG to get the most weight in yield possible. Either way, you can stop worrying about fungi with this strain. It will take around 70 days to flower, rewarding patient growers with an amazing, top quality yield. It has both an earthy and sweet taste, similar to Cream Caramel.
Whichever one of these ten amazing strains you choose to plant, we’re certain that you won’t regret doing it, and you’ll be more than happy with your precious indoor grow. All of these plants have an amazing aroma, flavor and effect, and although some may take a while to flower you can trust us when we say that it is most definitely worth the wait. If you’re not sure what to plant just have a look at our list of personal favorites and hopefully you can make up your mind. Happy growing!

A list of the 10 best seeds for indoor growing so that you know which one is the best for your specific needs if this is your first grow.
Top 5 Cannabis Strains for Indoor Growing
Indoors or outdoors, that is the question. Wondering which set-up to choose and which strains work best in which environment? Fear no more and read all about the benefits of growing cannabis indoors and get to know our top 5 strains for indoor growing.
There are quite a few factors to consider when choosing which strains to grow, especially if your set-up is indoors. You’ll have to compare flowering times, yields, effects and flavours, amongst other things. Growers will often land on their favourite strain after extended trial and error, and it can be an expensive process. We at Royal Queen Seeds, fortunately, have some information that can make the decision a bit easier.
We carry a wide variety of seeds, and each of them has something special to offer. Whether they’re indoor or outdoor strains or whether they’re indica, sativa or a pleasant hybrid, there’s quality across the board. However some varieties perform better than others in an indoor grow. That’s why we’ve decided to put together an updated list of the 5 best cannabis strains for growing indoors. Don’t take this as a full list of the best choices, though. In fact, we strongly encourage you to check out our website, where you can find even more gems.
WHY GROW INDOORS?
You may be wondering what the benefits of growing indoors are. Does it have an impact on how the plants grow? Is it better than outdoor growing? The answer to both those questions depends on the strain you select. Some will thrive in the indoor environment, others won’t reach their full potential. Indoor growing in general has quite a few advantages over growing outdoors.
For starters, you can control the climate of your environment. When you have this power in your hands, you can optimize the temperature to match the needs of whatever strain you’re growing, which is a major advantage. Plus, you can keep on cultivating throughout the year since change of seasons will not affect your grow. Keeping with the theme of control, being in charge of the cleanliness of your growing area is a plus, since keeping your product free of germs, parasites, and other harmful intruders is an easier task indoors. Also, an indoor set-up means much more discretion. In short, if you’re living in a rough climate or prioritize cleanliness and privacy, indoor growing is for you.
ARE ALL STRAINS SUITABLE FOR INDOOR GROWS?
The short answer to the first question is “Yes.” The slightly longer answer is, “Yes, as long as you can maintain the proper climate, lighting, etc.”
The viability of all strains outdoors is a different story, though. The main reasoning for this is down to plant sensitivity. If you live in a colder climate, many plants you’d normally be able to grow outdoors wouldn’t be able to stand the chill. Beyond climate, there’s the issue of pests. If some bugs happen to find your plants defenceless outside, they’re as good as gone. If you try to get rid of the pests with pesticides, though, the quality of your plants drops harshly.
We like to think of our Critical as the perfect all-rounder and recommend it to outdoor growers, novices, and anyone aiming for extremely high yields in a short flowering period. Indoor growers can profit from a huge production that exceeds indoor yields of 600g/m² in some cases, a strong narcotic stone due to average THC levels of 18%, and a highly stable genetic background consisting of Afghani and Skunk genetics. What makes this strain one of the best choices for an indoor grow? Well, no other variety from the Royal Queen Seeds product range is capable of yielding higher in a short flowering period of 7-8 weeks. If you’re looking for a vigorous and resilient strain that won’t cause any trouble other than confronting you with large amounts of high-quality cannabis – Critical is your choice.

It was once only available to smokers in the United States. Royal Gorilla has since crossed the pond, allowing for its amazing traits to be enjoyed by the growers and smokers in Europe. A clean split between indica & sativa, Royal Gorilla provides a wave of cerebral relaxation with an impressive 24–27% THC. This is a more complicated blend, combining Sour Dubb, Chem Sis and Chocolate Diesel. Her taste finds roots in the forest, showcasing pungent hits of earthiness and pine and it will grow beautifully away from the great outdoors. Royal Gorilla will take about 9–10 weeks to flower. But once that happens, you’ll see hefty buds with bright green leaves, with so much resin they shine in the light. The plants reach 90–160 cm and bear respectable yields of 500–550g/m². This strain produces superb quality and will definitely not disappoint.
