No Problem Stretch. If anyone has used this guide to make some bonsai moms of your own, Id love to hear about it and see some pics. Take care.

Hissin Appi is on a distinguished road
First of all, a big thx to everyone who has contributed to this thread! I have been growing for some months now and my first crop is getting ready... about 30d to go I think. I'm growing POK Kush x Citral and Snow White (600w+400w HPS, pic)

So, my next plan is to start working on some motherplants. I have 2 Papaya cuttings and I'm going to plant the other as my first mom. (Must say the root-trimming tips were really helpful!) Second mom will be a cross called Bling Bling, breeded by a guy from the Finnish hemp-forum. It's Chronic x G13 bx IX1. (If this cross seems successful, I'm hoping to keep one mom for years.)

I have a few tips/points on taking the cuttings, that my "guru" friends have given me. I'm not sure if this concerns more of the hydro-growers than soil, since the cuttings are planted into rockwoll using this technique.
What I do after snipping the cutting from the motherplant:
Take a 10l/2-3gl bucket filled with water and place the cutting in the water so that the "rooting part" of the stem is under water. After this I cut the surface again with a razorblade (under water), just above the first cut, and then stick it in to a rockwool cube (still under water).
After this proceed as usual. (shoplight, bag for "greenhouse effect" etc.)

What I've been told, is that this technique prevents air bubbles from getting into the stems hollow "channel" (or what would be a proper word?)


Just my 2 cents. Thanks once more to Oldtimer and 1018, this thread really made my life easier!

i dont understand this thorougly. so you take a rooted clone, plant it into a very small square pot. you cut it up so there are only 3 or 4 branches coming off the side? and you keep doing this and it stays small and compact?

Id say that that is pretty much right on except the trimming the plants down to 3 or 4 branches part. As opposed to doing that, the idea is to top/train them so that they grow many growing tips and to keep the center open for maximum light penetration. And yes, if you keep pruning, taking your clones regularly and root trimming, then they will stay very small. hope this helps

The Definition of MJ Bonsai Mums

This is a link to Siptar's bonsai mum thread. I found it on the google cache. However the link is broken I believe as it does not work for me. He had an excellent setup to show an even more micro bonsai mum. If anyone has it saved, please post or send it to me if at all possible. I believe a lot of micro growers could really use that thread. Thanks in advance
