    Trimmed some of the weak stuff from lower on all plants. Left mostly strong branches. Took 8 of the best trimmings for clones.

    Thx. They are pretty happy. Realized if I transplant next week, I will need to find another place for 3 plants since a 2x4 ft space will not accommodate 7 three gallon felt bags very well.

    I transplanted this morning to my 3 gallon felt pots. All 7 pots fit in the 2x4 tent but only barely. I mixed in some amendments because I can’t help myself. 32 cups of recycled soil, 4 cups composted cow manure, 4 tablespoons each of dried chicken ****, blood meal, worm castings, rock phosphate and diatomaceous earth. Needed to make 3 batches and will still need to make one more but I need to let more soil warm up before topping off the pots. Hoping I haven’t screwed up by making the soil too hot...

    Unrelated but I used my flower nute run off to water this during its outdoor summer adventure. Most blooms and prettiest color I have seen on it...

    I have wanted to try bonsai for decades but never have and at my age, I doubt I will be around long enough to grow a bonsai plant that would look like an old tree. I have my girlfriend(who I am now married to) a juniper bonsai when we first started dating. She killed it. No green thumb on her...

    Haha I also thought you had married a juniper bonsai! I mean, us plant people do strange things, who's judging? :p

    I got asked out by a palm tree but I told him I really didn't want a date.
    I talked to a walnut tree for a while but he turned out to be nuts.
    And let's not forget the mimosa pudica... any time I tried to have a real conversation with him, he just kinda closed up.
    *chorus of groans*
    I'll see myself out now, sorry....

    Back to the subject of the thread(though the puns are appreciated and encouraged), I took a pic of my tent. Getting crowded. I was planning on getting rid of 3 plants to make room to flower but my cloning skills are not a skill at all so I may be keeping the 3 plants in a mother role. Not sure why I am having such a hard time cloning this go-round...

    Trying to wrangle these girls. 7 in 3 gallon pots in a 2x4 footprint=unintended SOG. I have a home for 3 of them but not for 3 weeks. Probably going to have to get creative...

    My mimosa is much smaller than the others in my grow box due to a later start and a week at the beach during our power outage...but I’m confident it’ll get going and already has actually...
