bonsai cannabis seeds

Always get quality seeds. If you’re going to create a mother plant and want her to remain in the vegetative phase of her life, you’d better get yourself some solid, tough genes to work with. Try different strains if you like, but look for fast growers with high stress tolerance. Sativa-dominant hybrids tend to do well, but go and see what works for you. Oh yes, to prevent disappointment: as you’re letting your budsai reveg, it can’t go into the flowering stage. That means no bud for you to harvest. Grow some extra weed beside your budsai if you want bud!

Revegging mother plants gets you fresh budsai cuttings.

Let your plant grow before you start to manipulate it into shape. Use your fingers to train it; tweezers and wire will easily damage it. Just don’t start twisting it too soon; let it grow firm first. Wait until you have at least two or three sets of leaves sprout from the stem before you start to work. Only then should you slowly start to bend the plant into the shape you prefer for your budsai.

Be Gentle; Go Slow

If you like what you see so far, it’s time for some clarification. The purpose of bonsai – and budsai – is not growing for harvest. As you’ll find out, you won’t grow big fat buds on a budsai. In fact, you won’t grow miniature buds either. Bonsai was never intended to grow trees or fruit for production. It’s a thing of beauty, and a pastime that fosters patience and a deep, zen-like appreciation of nature. It’s almost meditation in that sense.

Most of us growers tend to look beyond the limits of our own cannabis hobby sometimes. If you are intrigued by the power of nature, and you like a bit of creativity too, them you’re probably heard about bonsai before. This ancient miniature plant-rearing technique, now popular among gardeners all over the world, first emerged in ancient China and Japan.

So how do you go about it when you want to train and grow a budsai of your own? Here’s some pro tips from the man himself to help you along:

Fittingly, UkDam named his brand new budsai mother plant after his own mother, who had sadly passed away a few years earlier. The Strawberry Glue genetics worked like a charm. The great thing about revegging a mother plant is the fact that you can reset the annual cycle time and time again. That means you can keep that mother plant alive for years, allowing you to use fresh cuttings to start your new budsai or other projects! As the pictures show, growing a budsai bonsai from the right type of cannabis is certainly worth a try!

A bonsai tree is essentially a miniature tree. However, the term bonsai does not refer to a specific species of tree, but rather to the growing technique used to keep trees at this small size. The goal of growing a bonsai tree is to develop a healthy, mature, authentic plant that will only grow to a fraction of its natural size.

WHAT IS A BONSAI TREE?

Because each strain’s genetics are different, certain cultivars will be better suited for developing into canna-bonsais. Here are a couple of strains that, thanks to their short stature, we think are ideal candidates for growing into canna-bonsai trees.

The second step is to properly set the mother plant in the pot. When choosing a cutting for a mother plant, make sure that you pick a healthy and sturdy one. Clippings can be taken from the plant several times per year, so it’s important to ensure the mother of these clones is capable of producing quality buds.

Originating in ancient China and Japan, the practice of growing bonsai trees has lasted for over a thousand years. Translated from Japanese, the word bonsai means “planted in container”. By planting trees in small containers, their ability to absorb nutrients and develop extensive root systems is restricted, resulting in their miniature size.

By keeping a selection of bonsai cannabis plants, growers can also vary their crops without the need to cultivate plants from seeds every time they want to introduce a different variety.

Once you have everything you need to hand, the you’ll need to follow are:

Growing a Bonsai weed plant Step-By-Step

Needing no introduction, this all-time Dutch classic is world-renowned for its high THC content, impressive yields, and manageable growth patterns. It is also prized for the intoxicating, buzzy high it delivers, not to mention its quintessential fragrance and distinctive, strong flavour. In terms of appearance, White Widow fulfils everything you would expect from a strong weed plant, making it the ideal foundation for your bonsai marijuana plant project.

At this stage, ordinarily it would be time to start thinking about harvesting all of that sweet bud you’ve been watching blossom and grow. While you could decide to harvest and enjoy your plant’s bounty and begin the process again with a new seedling, a true bonsai weed plant is never actually allowed to complete the flowering process.

Next, fill the pot with suitable soil. Technically you could just use ordinary soil from your garden (weed is great at growing in all sorts of environments after all), however we recommend using ‘Super Soil’ which has been enriched with specially selected composts. This is available from most weed growing equipment suppliers.
