PTGC Misfit: The White x Pre 98 Bubba Kush
Happy with the shape at this point. I probably won’t go any more training at this point. I have the shape of the trunk I’d like and will continue to let it grow now. Lol. She is probably a little pissed at me for stressing her so hard. I’ve been watering her with just water but have started with some FF nutes. Looks perky. Hoping her roots are forming as planned.
I can only imagine all the magic happening under this perfect imperfection! Her roots are probably hugging the energizing crystal that she has been placed with. Winding and attaching itself to secure it’s feet into solid ground. Knowing this will be her final resting place. The place where she stays to flower and share her beautiful fruit with those that cared for her.
Party cup girl! Well, she’s growing it her Kratky condo. Her roots have been trying to break out but I’ve kept them contained. I just pull the girl up, tuck and pull, drop her back in and she’s good to go. She’s incredibly small compared to Crispywannabe and Smotpokers!
Back to Bonsai!
Ive been letting this girl do her thing. Growth as been very nice. I keep new growth trimmed off. I’m looking to get the tree to hang over the rock with just one main.
I had to take a peek at how the roots were forming. I hoped they had grown close to or through the rock. This was not the case. But it’s still cool! The roots grew out rather than down. Once I carefully removed soil to expose roots I saw the issue. I needed to pack the roots closer to the rock with minimal soil. If I put too much on top the roots won’t grow down. So I adjusted. I placed the roots in areas where only downward growth was possible. Using very wet soil I repacked the roots and wrapped the whole rock in plastic. I’m happy with the progress as well as the quick bounce back over night.
I planned on growing this under a light but after my tray build I left it out in the natural sun. So now with Oct 1st behind us I will let these girls stay outside and work with the natural timing of the sun for their flip.
Girls are still flowering. They are petite but look cute together. I had originally planned to do these separate but as a clone Redwood (My mainline entry) wasn’t the most comfortable. Now they look great!
Bonsai is going well. I had to anchor her down a bit. The roots really needed more time wrapped up.
