Well it's been done, I've cloned a successful batch and have some great results. I only needed 3 so I have gifted the rest out to some friends and hopefully they do well with them. On the other hand away from the great results, I have been a dick head to my plants. I've got it sorted tho and no more over watering. I've been measuring and now I can see how much is too much. Anyways, on with the shit. 

I am starting to practice the art of the cannabonsai tree. They are just so fucking COOL! My goal is to have a successful graft of 3 strains into one plant and then flower that one plant. I have NO IDEA how long this may take as life is throwing so many curve balls at me right now I just have to keep focused on the important things and that's family and health. And also, I may need to get my shit together and figure out how to keep these plants alive and healthy. There is root pruning needed every so often and pruning and what not but like I say to all new growers, it's a weed, it'll live lol. Now here are my first 3 subjects. Purple God Bud, Strawberry Lemonade, and Gorilla SkittleZ. The PGB is a fem project from a grower that had Temple Growers seeds and well, this bitch put on some BUDS so she stayed. The other 2 are also great genetics from Barneys Farm which I won here at Percy's and will hopefully do well. Here are the pics of tonight's transplants into there last homes. I used square pots to ensure the root pruning is easier. You can use a bread knife to slice an inch off each side and then repot back into the same pot with new soil and more room for the growth the plant needs to keep growing. Here's the first round of pics, the plants are pissed and hopefully will do better. I have realized that I need to keep better diaries and will do from now on.

Ok so we are running into some issues, I checked the roots and I am going to go ahead and start with a root pruning tonight aswell as pruning them down pretty significantly. I am sure I need a call mag supplement here aswell but let's get them in some fresh dirt and hit em with some nutrients. They have been improving from the Kelp Me Kelp You so far but we have more work to do. Here is what we have so far. These have been left to just grow since last time, not much maintenance other than pulling the dead leaves off and only 2 feeds...time to get something done here and bring em back to better health. There is a Sexxpot, Gorilla Skittlez, Strawberry Lemonade, and Purple God Bud.

The goal is to keep these alive and healthy until we are finished the outdoor Harvest this year, like what in the actual fuck Cody, why do I grow such big plants outside lmao it's like 6 weeks of work hahaha. Good problem to have I guess. Anyways stay tuned, and any comments or suggestions to make a bonsai trees or past experiences welcome, trying something new here and hopefully we can get some Percy's bonsai trees going!

So the process went well, I cut these bitches down pretty hard lol. I only root pruned the Strawberry Lemonade and the PGB, mostly to inspect the roots but, these bitches were getting too tall. The Strawberry Lemonade got the chop big time, she is a stretchy little girl and so is the Gorilla Skittlez but much less. I let them grow too long before I cut them and whatever is going on is making the stems more brittle and hard like wood, could just be age but at least they will be productive for clones if I like the weed they made. I am currently curing the flowered moms that made these (except for the Sexxpot, she just moved in about 45 to 50 days ago lol).  I think the Strawberry Lemonade smells the best so far and omg was it STICKY, beautiful buds but I could've grown them better, still getting the hang of this indoor shit lol. Lots to learn about hahahaha. I have some long cured LAPK still and man, what a buzz lol so stoned hahaha. Anyways fuck, ranting here like a stoner 🤣🤣🤣.

Plan: To ensure they get healthier and research grafting, any suggestions welcome to this as it is completely uncharted territory for me. I wanna try and graft 2 or 3 strains INTO one of these and flower it and see what happens! Don't fucking ruin this for me if you know already what happens LOL I need to do it lol And the weeds I like will be grafted to the mom I don't like ( as to preserve the mom I do like) and then I will for sure know what weed is what IF it makes a difference at all/lives and I don't fuck the entire operation to death and massacre months of work and hydro lmaoooo. Anyways tomorrow will be Bonsai Day 1, a feed of cal mag and a light dose of grow nutes with some super thrive is their breakfast in the morning, we should see an update by Bonsai Day 7 and hopefully the Strawberry Lemonade pull through, looking at her now I went a bit wild but the bitch was just too tall. Anyways happy growing guys, hope I pull this one off, I like sciencing and shit🙂

@lucas3330 to prune the roots, they will stay in that size pot for years to come. They get root bound and need a trim, so you trim em, fresh dirt, fresh growth 🙂

Seriously!? seems wild to me lol rather then stress/stunt the plant it encourages new growth as it was root bound? 

great to know though! keen to see how these do

@colacody I too am curious about this technique, I've done it with Apple trees but never a mother cannabis plant, just imagine 🤤

Cannabonsai Day 7! It's been a week since the trim and we have some improvements, the Sexxpot plant is a bit pissed but she'll be fine, new growth looks ok. The clones are doing well, going to wait another week or so and trim some more to encourage thickening of the stems and then start sorting out who is getting to be the base for the grafts. Cool shit coming, or an incredible disaster LOL. I've been foliar feeding mainly as to not over soak the roots, they were abused while I was away on vacation before so, they're looking to be improving now. Cheers guys, any comments or questions or suggestions always welcome. 🙂
