How Much Does It Cost To Grow Cannabis Indoors

A good indoor cultivator can grow cannabis year-round, harvesting anywhere between 1 and 12 times per year.

Of course, there are a few disadvantages to growing indoors, including:

  • The difficulty of maintaining proper ventilation
  • Increased energy costs
  • Fertilizer needs

Beyond that, growing indoors can be EXTREMELY beneficial when done properly. The main question many new growers have is,

How much will it cost to grow cannabis indoors?

Come dive in as we explore the costs associated with an indoor grow.

The Costs of Growing Your Cannabis Indoors

Let’s start by assuming you want to create a 6’ x 6’ growing space and use soil as your growing medium. Let’s also assume that you live in a temperate climate where you won’t need to use A/C, as this will save you a fair amount of money on energy costs.

What we will not include is the price of the actual cannabis plants, as they can vary. Most clones cost anywhere from $30 to $150 per clone, though high-end clones can be more expensive.

We can also assume that our plants will be in the vegetative state for about a month and in the flowering stage for about 8-10 weeks.

Cost Estimates

  • 6’ x 6’ Grow Space – $250
  • 1000-Watt Lighting Setup – $200-$500
  • Metal Halide Bulb – $30-$100
  • Carbon Filter – $80-$120
  • 6” Inline Fan – $80-$200
  • Two 30-Gallon Water Tanks – $50-$100
  • Six 10-Gallon Pots – $20-$40
  • Nutrient Starter Kit– $50-$100
  • 60 Gallons of Soil – $60
  • Hardware (Stakes, Zip Ties, Trellising) – $50-$60
  • Electricity Costs for 3.5 Months – $700

If you choose to use a 1000-watt light bulb, you will likely produce 1,000 grams using a gram of flower per watt as an average. However, when you’re just getting started, you will probably get anywhere from 0.5-1 gram per watt.

You must also account for how well your plants take to your nutrients and how good you are at keeping pests away.

On the other hand, you might choose to go for a smaller closet grow.

In this case, expect to use a small grow tent. You can get a good grow tent for less than $1,000, including just about everything you need to grow your cannabis besides the plants and the soil.
