Bonsai'd buds (a how to)
    #1683589 - 07/03/03 12:14 PM (14 years, 5 months ago)

I've posted this method a few times, but i don't think i've ever dedicated a thread to it. In addition to that the last set of pictures were lost in the BB upgrade. So here it is again. Hopefully easier to understand.

This method is pretty much adapted from a method i've seen in a High Times article a few years back. I've practiced this method with many different plants and have had great success. The art of bonsai is not limited to just tress, it can be done with virtually any plant.

The first picture is meant to be read in rows left to right.



One starts with an initial cut, then makes two, then four, then eight and so on depending on how big of a bonsai and how many branches are desired.

The red lines indicate points at which cuts are made. Whatever is cut off can be discarded. The cut have to be made as close to the first set of leaves on the branch/stem as possible without disturbing the leaf stems. The rest should be pretty straight forward.



The fan leaves can be left intact if desired, but if stealth is desired and nosy people/neighbors are a problem then consider trimming the fan leaves.



Again the red lines are cut points. The trick is to remove all the fingers of the fan leaf except the middle one.

The plant sustains just fine with or without the fan leaf fingers because it is so small. This part of the bonsai process is merely a matter of security and aesthetics.

Here are some pics of plants that have just under went their first cut, they had 2 sets of leaves, and now they've been topped and are now back down to one. I expect in a few days two new shoots from all of these.

Thanks a lot Neuro. I was wondering about how to make a marijuana bonsai, and now I'll be able to start one. How big do these get? I have a couple Shiva Shanti seeds I may try this with, since it isn't suppose to grow large.

They're generally kept a foot high, and are constantly pruned once at the height and bushiness desired until you're ready to flower.

can you use the stems you cut(for bonsai) as cuttings, or is that just branches?

Usually that can't be done, unless the stem/branch is allowed to grow out a few nodes, with the bonsai method you cut it immediately so it grows new shoots faster.

How does this affect yield?

"A nation's hope of lasting peace cannot be firmly based upon any race in armaments but rather upon just relations and honest understanding with all other nations...

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and are not clothed... The cost of one modern heavy bomber is this: a modern brick school in more than 30 cities. We pay for a single fighter with a half million bushels of wheat. We pay for a single destroyer with new homes that could have housed more than 8,000 people..."

It's significantly less, if you're going to bonsai them then you shouldn't be concerned about yield but more about stealth or novelty. I don't have any numbers though, perhaps this year I'll try to get some values.
