As you can probably tell from the title ive decided im going to start work on a conversation piece rather then something for the harvest. Im thinking around the 12 inch mark maybe a little taller. However im somewhat experience in purposelly stunting plants and dealing with them, so i thought id ask here to see if any one can give me some idea of what to expect.
Stunting the plant...obviously keep it in a midget bonsai pot. Is there much else to it? Am i going to need to trim back the roots occassionally? Does stunting a plant cause any damage/trauma or make it demand any extra attention/nutrience? and last of all...Would it produce minature buds?
Cheers for any and all answers, i currently don't have a hole lot of an idea what to expect

very cool...... I love these kind of grows....

smallest i have done is 1 tablespoon of soil for the intire grow.... had to prune roots once to get it to flower tho....bottom feeding also makes a big difference....

and they will produce bud indeed... have fun with it mang :D

I think maybe a bonzai would be good to have around for a mother. One could have several bonzai for a wide variety of stuff. I would like to start some bonzai moms myself.

Did anyone see the shotglass grow? someone made a plant grow in a shotglass with a yield of 5.5 grams. the concept was awesome considering the yield. in a sq. foot you figire 1 plant per square inch with a yiled of 5 grams so in one square foot you'd get a yield of over 100 grams per square foot. 12 square foot is 1200 grams. I'd love to see that in a post!!

wait, why did you let it grow straight up GHB?
if you want a bonzi, why wouldnt you LST the plant, and make it really branchy and short.
and if you want a good small Bonzi, i would use the 12/12 from seed method.
That makes short plants to Begin with, so that combo would make a great bonzi i bet.

hey pants ive been training bonsai for years man. Stunting the growth of plants puts a **** of alot of stress on them, ive killed 4 of my bonsai trees so far just this year dude so its not easy. You will have to trim back the roots...i do it every 6 months but it really depends on the size of the tree and the size of the pot. Slow release fertilizer will be fine for a bonsai...at least thats what i use for mine. I was thinking about doing a bonsai cannabis, but seeing is how i havent grown cannabis yet i figured i would at least get in one succesfull grow before i try anything experimental. btw my first grow is starting early march XD haha. btw HGB your plant kicks *** man. I love it, you should build up the trunk abit, see if you can ad an "aged" look to the little beaut. Neway pants good luck and if you have questions about bonsai just pm me id love to help.
