Bonsai Marijuana
    #6163504 - 10/12/06 09:21 PM (14 years, 6 months ago)

Recently Ive been trying to find some information on bonsai marijuana... so now im looking forward for some replys from people who have grew some bonsai marijuana, by that i dont just mean by growing a topped plant , but by a plant theyve kept at maybe 1 or 2 feet tall and topped. I have a few questions on them, do you just always trim the top of the plant? and will they yield anything? Afoaf is thinking about tryin one with a flouro light... so im tryin to get him some information.

thanks to all that reply.

this plant actually was stunted from a seedling by not giving it the rootspace. Its leaves stayed tiny.

Sublimistri, you will need a much bigger light than that. The plant might grow just fine with what you have, but in order to get any buds worth smoking, you'll need at least 200w worth of floros. I'd suggest looking into HPS or MH lights. Good luck!! Peace!!

whats an mh light? hps's look kind of expensive at the moment ive been going through some hard times lately.. im really interested in bonsai though it seems cool.

cpw1971 - how exactly did u keep it small? what kind of lights... and you jus did some root cuttin and topping to the plants? Also how was that yield?

coda - i might look into low stress i seen a grow on it and it was nice.. but it doesnt really keep the plants small does it?

mh= metal halide and they are in the same price range as high pressure sodium.
that plant actually had stunted growth as a seedling and I had to keep it from dying in an aerocloner for a while. I didnt really have to prune it because it stayed small and bushed out on its own.
eventually they grew full size though after I put them under the 1000w hps.

how do those mini plants yield? also where do you get those soil cylinders from or is that small pots?

sublimistri -

I used to lurk the overgrow forums (R.I.P.).  They had an excellent article on bonsai marijuana plants.  Are you trying to just keep the thing as a mother plant to clone from or are you wanting to harvest from a smaller plant?  To really bonsai the thing you will need to keep it in a smaller pot (perhaps 9 inches) and trim the roots about every three months.  This stunts it and promotes secondary root growth.  This is also how you would bonsai a tree.  If you just want to harvest from a small plant, top a lot and start flowering early as bonsai methods won't really help you.  I hope this is some help to you.  :grin:

"Bonsai" marijuana is easily achieved by limiting environmental conditions.

Basically, you can have plants, with buds... no taller than 4 inches.

I have 5-6 "bowl plants" --they have about enough weed on them for a bowl-- which are no taller than 8 inches. They are like dinky little seedlings. They key is to use cuttings, and once rooted immediately limit their environment (light, rootspace and nutrient -minor- deprevations seem to do it...) Once they begin to bud from lack of light, you can bump them up to a flowering regiment...

Another phenotype I've grown and have seen, unintentionally, in friends' gardens is the "palm tree." Palm tree phenotype consists on a small, branchless plant with one bud at the terminal of the main (and only) stalk. It obviously has a weak yield of approximately one nugget, but it looks cool. From what I've seen, "palm trees" almost always have red stalks which may indicate some serious nitrogen deficiency.
