  1. Good evening all Just thought i would start a thread about maintaining mother plants this is an open thread for all to post and chip in with tips and progress , i know Oldtimer has a thread somewhere but i thought a running thread would be good ! just some thing to look at for everyone i guess as its often a issue for many a grower when it comes to keeping chosen stock or even for those venturing into regular seed growing for the first time . Here is a picture of a couple of mother plants i have in 3.5ltr pots of totaly unrelated stock , i originally clipped them back to four main branches with alternate axis so they open in a bowl shape and grow outward rather than upward , i have feed them with Plant magic grow and silicon not to much just splashes here and there . You can see from the last picture how much i have clipped them back i could have had at least 15 clones from each variety which is far more than you need really and they were grown only under a t5 I will continue posting as they grow back and i further clip them back where eventually the stems will start thickening and start to really take on the composition of a true bonsai plant . then will be the time for the root ball to be trimmed down which is the part that puts people off most. Please feel free to post your mother plants and methods of maintaining them and progress if your trying it for the first time Have a good evening all
  2. Hi Guys and Galls, So i have gotten down to 2 plants for my Bonsai experiment and they are now in larger pots. I have them in a small tent with T5 light. I have them on an 18/6 light regime and watering them every 3-4 days or so. They are in GK Soil which should feed them for about 4 weeks and they are looking healthy. Any other suggestions for keeping them strong and healthy would be appreciated. JW
  3. Hi, what does everyone use for their bansai's? I've been using Vitalink A&B hard water edition with added mono mg every other day with good results in coco. Was wondering what others use? I'd like to know if there's a single part nutrient (no A&B) that would be recommended? My mums are watered by hand run to waste, occasionally fed from a reservoir while away for a few weeks, so need to be stable and non organic to avoid sludge in the res.
  4. Morning glorious People. After a couple of requests the refrigerator of stealth is here... please feel free to critique or comment on this thread, interestingly it would be an awesome rolling thread If other members growing in refrigerators could add content along the way. Unless I’m totally alone on this one.. After much consideration on how best to hide a grow box in plain sight and looking at different designs and ideas, I decided it was best for me not to hide one. I’m settled on the conclusion that it would be less stressful and easier to access if I didn’t need to hide things or take time accessing locked rooms. I would need to be sufficiently able to produce enough medical marijuana from my personal consumption. That’s the ideal. Very Low cost set up was important along with low cost to run the setup once up and running.
  5. Any help, direction etc very much appreciated... I have three clones, doing very nicely, though stuck in a small veg area while their mum flowers... I staggered taking the cuttings, so I can experiment to a degree - the first clone was potted from 0.5 to 1lt 3weeks ago and is becoming or is, root-bound. I do not have the option of potting up so plan to trim its roots and re-pot into 1lt. If it all goes to crap, I have a couple of weeks to work out what to do with the other two - worst case, one lives and is potted up. Can anyone advise on good practice for root trimming or direct me to any relevant threads, please? I have found a few discussions, though on hydro trimming, which isn't really helpful - I guess bonsai'ing a mother would be the closest to what I am trying to achieve, though temporarily. As I say, the aim/hope is to put these three in for a few additional weeks veg and turn them to 12/12 when mum comes out... Many thanks in advance.
