I have been growing cannabis indoors for about 7 years now here in Michigan. Recently, since legalization, I have started machine trimming for local growers in the area. This journal will be a mix of my buds and those from Northern Michigan growers I trim for.
Here is a Blue Chemdawg (Blueberry x Chemdawg) I trimmed for a local grower:
I was given a Gelato mother for trimming that one, I have a small crop of clones from it ready to go into bud. It is 2 am right now, so I am just chilling for the night, but tomorrow I will post some more pictures. It looks like it is going to be very productive.
Here is a Kush strain that I trimmed with a mechanical bowl trimmer for a local grower:
I usually don’t keep mothers, mainly just try to clone something before it goes into bud. The Gelato seems to recover very quickly, it has enough tops for another batch of clones already.
These are a Sativa called Purple Haze. They rarely turn purple for me now that I am perpetual and can’t lower the night temps. It has been the main thing I grow because of yield. It takes 10-11 weeks to bud out, though:
My next harvest is Purple Haze, so I will have a lot of good bud shots of that soon. I will get a pic of the plant later, its my attempt at a bonzai plant. Was experimenting working with bigger plants to get my plant count down.
These are the Gelato clones I made off the gifted mother:
My nutrients were too much for them at the start and they got a little overdose, been feeding them water and they are using up the extra nutrients now. They really need transplanted but I am holding off. A small pot with frequent watering gives me a taller plant.
Thanks, a lot of times I had to break them down before I dried them to prevent mold. I haven’t trained my plants to focus on top colas in years. I get more yield when the plant distributes the growth between many buds. This harvest coming up is a bonsai plant that has a lot of buds, I will more pictures to share tomorrow. Thanks for stopping in!
That is a true bonsai plant, very nice find. I kind of just copied the bonsai style in a 20 gal. All good until toward the end the buds just started falling all over one another lol. Working on a trellis system for future grows.
Thanks, they seem to be pretty dense, really hardened up this last week. I am going to run some batches of smaller plants through until I can get some bigger plants vegetated, and keep them on a rotation with some trellis support. All good things in time, the Odyssey continues.
