Thanks for posting. I got a question for you. When you take clones or trim the Bonsai, do you cut at the same place every time? Do new branches come out of that same area? That's what it looks like in that picture.

In that case yes and if I can keep them that way, I'm very satisfied. I guess they function like the pollarded willows.

I don't quite follow. I thought I would always have to leave a node on the branch to keep the plant growing. 1 becomes 2 becomes 4 becomes 8 etc. How can you encourage all the branching from the one stump?

The plant makes very small dormant nodes despite the obvious 1-2-4-8 ones.

I just wanted to compliment you on a great idea.

Several years ago i learned very basic bonsai techniques and over the winter i had such a hard time cloning that i started toying with the idea of rooting some clones this summer & using bonsai to keep them small so that I'm able to keep enough plants to keep a grow going through the winter. I then joined 420 Genetics and couldn't beleive the coincidence cause I'd never seen a MJ plant bonsaied before.

So I'm wondering what you thought. If you stopped clipping you plant it would start growing like a regular MJ plant would it not...so thats what i was thinking keep them small until i needed them & then stop the clipping & let them grow until they are the optimal flowering size.

Thanks so much for sharing pics of your beautiful plants

Default interesting idea

Here's the swazi skunk, I let her grow quite a while, then cut her back, once again.
I guess let alone the plants would eventually grow out a few main stalks. Like this one I put out last spring.

Here are my Sadhu mums. The plant on the left is from the least favourite of my two females from last grow. She is in great condition, although she has a very slight touch of nute burn from when I was experimenting with feeding doses.I have a problem with the plant on the right though...since I took the last cuts from her she has started producing only 3 fingered leaves. I think I may have shocked her with the aggressive pruning..messed with her metabolism even. I have found one branch which has five fingered leafage all else are 3. This is all a big pity because the donor plant she came from is a real beauty as I've explained before..real sticky and very potent. Is it worth continuing with this mum Don? Is there any chance she could revert to producing her usual 5 fingered leaves? As always your advice is most welcome.

Patience Migrow. Anyway your plants look very nice. No need to worry. I'ts not unusual if the nuber of the fingers go down after pruning. With two mums like that you'll produce more cuttings you're able to flower.
