A lot. Adults of 21 or older can grow up to 12 plants at home. This is adult home grow, which is different from other states that only allow medical home grow.  Opposed to the majority of states that allow only six plants per household, in Michigan you can grow double that limit, Alaska is the other state with 12 plants per house limit.

Take note that the limit is per household and not per person. Meaning, if there are two adults the limit is still twelve and not 24 plants.

For medical marijuana caregivers, in Michigan they are allowed up to five patients registered to them and can grow up to 12 plants for each of them.
