The first step is preparing your pot for the plant. Since you’re growing bonsais, you want to select a suitably small pot. In order to facilitate training, some growers prefer to drill holes around the perimeter of the pot for string or twine. Just make sure that the holes are big enough to actually fit the twine you are planning on using. Failing to do so may result in a bad surprise when it comes time to train.
Marijuana bonsai trees are real. They’re not a myth. You can grow a Bonsai ganja tree to soothe your soul and make you happy and high. Check it out.
Now it’s time to prune the branches. As the plant grows, its branches must be restricted in order to preserve the classic bonsai shape and stature, and to maintain airflow to the plant’s main stem. It’s important to only prune offshoot branches, as cutting main ones could seriously hurt the health and growth of your plant.
STEP TWO: PLANT YOUR CUTTING
The third step is training your canna-bonsai’s branches. Similarly to how you trained the stem, you can train the plant’s branches by tying them down with twine. If you want your branches to be more horizontal, then tie them down with more force. If you prefer them to be more vertical, tie them down more loosely. When tying, make sure to leave a little room so the branches can grow without too much constriction.
In the never-ending quest to produce the best buds around, growers have developed several strategies to optimise their cannabis grow. One of these strategies is the growth and maintenance of cannabis 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.
There are several steps to planting and growing a cannabis bonsai tree.
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!
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.
Start easy – save the complex stuff for later!
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.

Amsterdam Genetics budsai in progress!
Named in honour of its exotic, fruity flavour, this up and coming weed variety has so much going for it. With generous yields, a beautiful branch pattern, and striking dark green colour which takes on a purple hue as it matures, a Somango bonsai plant would make a stunning statement art piece in any home. If you’re planning on harvesting yours, flowering times are reasonably short at around 9 to 10 weeks.
Firstly, trim off any yellowing leaves so that you are left with a completely healthy plant. Next (and this is the nerve-wracking bit), remove about a third of the top half of the plant, just where the larger buds are beginning to reach maturity. Leave the smaller buds below alone, however, as these are needed for the plant to be able to restart its vegetative phase.
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.

If you want to grow a bonsai weed plant of your own, must-have essentials include:
OK, this is where that electric drill comes in. You’ll need to drill three holes on the rim of the pot roughly three cm apart in a kind of flattened triangle formation, plus another two holes on the other side of the pot opposite the first three. You’ll also need to ensure that there is a drainage hole in the bottom of the pot.
This is where your own artistry really comes into play, so let that creative flair take control. You’ll need to be careful not to take much off the main branches of the plant in order to preserve it, so instead focus on trimming some of the offshoot branches and allowing others to flourish.
It’s worth mentioning that, should you choose to harvest any weed from your plant, the potency will now be reduced. However, it does mean that you can now take pride in developing your artistic pruning skills to perfection.
