    The Amnesia Fast got affected too. Yeah, you are right that at least I don't smoke them. Once she is mature enough she is coming down and going in the oil blend.

    Thanks, yeah, the timing was less than ideal, but I had been wanting to breed a little so anyhow; and also worked out a possible way around to get the indicas bigger, so there were good things that came out of it.

    Hug those who care about you, do all you can for those you love (if they want it). We just never know when it might be the last time we talk to them or see them.

    Holy smokes! that knot is giving me ideas and that is a nice looking bud!!

    That knot could be perfect for grafting, at an early stage!

    Thanks mate. Last time the knot did not gimp the plant. I managed to tie it much more gently and without breakage. This one snapped in 4 places on the bend. I thought she was done for. Just shows how strong the will to live is. No nanners or balls on her!

    Thanks Val. Kinda lost me there. What would be the goal with grafting? Mixing strains or creating something pretty? Both work for me lol.

    Mixing strains, mostly, without having to cross breed. I would love for a strong sativa root system to "power" some indicas so they grow bigger; or an indica root system so the sativas don't go shooting for the stars!

    Of course it could totally back fire and we have humongous indicas that take forever to finish, or puny sativas that is only good for lighting a barbecue! But one can dream LOL.

    Royal queen seeds has a page on grafting. They say you can graft multiple strains to a single rootstock and have multiple strains growing from the same tree.

    So technically we could keep a single root stock alive and graft on seedlings after they hit the 5th or 6th node. Keep a perpetual auto grow of as many strains as you want with only growing 1 plant plus the occasional seedling to add to the mix? I need to try this grafting once I harvest something with a nice rootstock.

    Probably not Autos.... but photos yeah, the theory is that from the one trunk, the branches are all different strains.

    So that would be a 18/6 to 24/0 lighting, vegging ALL the time. Great if there's space dedicated to that.

    What I try to do is to have the scion still on her roots whilst the graft is taking place, so if the graft doesn't work out, she doesn't just plain die, that her own roots would be able to sustain her still. My CBD Critical Super Bud is "kinda grafted" this way to the Amnesia Fast, but she is small still, like a few inches tall. I am guessing that the graft has not entirely gone as planned.

    I tried to get you a you tube demo but not seen the one I wanted to share. Soz.

    I've done some research into this, the best use I can think of, is to keep one mother plant, with multiple strains on it for cuttings.

    Instead of having five plants to keep as mothers, have one mother, with four strain grafted onto it.... might give it a go soon

    That's a great idea!
    How about a flowering rootstock for checking plant sex?

    I get you now, take a cut from a vegging plant and add it to a flowering plant so you cans ex the plant without flowering too soon. Nice man, very nice

    Lol. Keep one plant in 12/12 alive all the time on 12/12.

    Add a tiny branch if you want to determine sex. Add larger branches from the multiple strain mother to keep flowers growing all the time.

    So 1 multiple strains mother in veg and 1 multiple strains flowering.

    Lol. Can a stem be grafted to the trunk or does it need to be a stem. Perpetual flower only works of we can graft to the trunk.

    Grafting to a trunk will be harder I think, one plant will pretty much be complete dead if you chop off all greenery, it can't eat...but man, this plant have never ceased to amaze me, you can probably do it lol
