My moms trees.

in #grow
last year

She is closing in on 70 years of age. I stopped by her place for a visit a while back and ended up giving her some mystery seeds when the new laws came in. She always talked about how she'd love to grow a few. Earlier in the week she was begging me to come by and check them out to make sure everything was ok with them.

I just got back from Salmon Arm for my brothers wedding so I decided to drop by her place and check them out, and I burst out laughing at the sight of them.

She has always had a green thumb, with certain plants she either sinks or swims. For instance she can't get her potatoes to grow much past the size of a walnut, yet randomly has full peaches growing on a tiny tree planted only a few years ago.

Her cannabis plants though... She was so concerned about them. "Are they the right kind?!" Yes mom they're female, "Is this enough water!? Do they look healthy!? Will I get any buds do you think!?" Uhmm well...

I didn't know how to tell her - as it's quite late in the season now and only the beginning few white pistols are present.

So instead, I just tried to break it to her easy.


"Mom if those plants start producing buds - even if they're little popcorns. I'm sure you'll get a year's supply."

She was so excited with that news!

I'm very impressed that she's got them so massive, yet a little worried that they won't flower properly.

Let me know what you think!

How in the world did she get a 6 foot plant to grow in that small orange bucket?? Is that a 5 gallon? Reminds me of my Blue-Jack that is in a 45 gal pot!

What are her training, watering, feeding methods, and what region is she located? Also, what is she using for plant and buds support?

RE-SMOKED!

Lol my thoughts exactly! I'm fairly positive that they're in 10 gallon pots. The size of the plants make it look small but the pots are pretty large actually. Located on the west coast of Canada, No training - just picking some leaves the would otherwise block sun to the inner plant as instructed, waters 10 gallons everyday now apparently - though she couldn't recall the watering schedule before they were big. Unprepared municipal water (No thermal, de-chlorination, EC or PH treatments). No nutrients used and no supports.

I think that's what made me laugh when I saw them. She literally just planted them and loved them. There really isn't more too it😂♥️

Although now that I've learned she hasn't been using nutrients, I've been thinking about introducing some Bud Candy to help the flowering process

No training?! That is hard for me to believe that she does not even top her plants. No nutes I have seen have success before, but that was bc growers were gathering nutritional sources from their environment in the woods near their gardens, and amending those into the soil in larger quantities instead. The most amazing part to me is still the pot sizes, I have never seen a cannabis plant grow so big, in something so small...

A word of advise to her though, pay very close attention to the wind every day on the weather report. If there are no supports, and winds get over 15 mph, you will have some fallen over plants. She could have someone move them to a less windy area temporarily if that happens. She will also most definitely need supports when they are further into flower.

What strains are these? Do you know the breeder or genetics company?

Sorry I did leave out a massive piece of information now that you mention it. She makes incredible compost.

Thank you that's a good point about the fallen plants, although it's pretty rare for us to get winds like that. Will get her some bamboo stakes and netting.

They are random seeds I've been collecting over the years. Out of the options they could possibly be: Alaskan Thunder, Nevilles Haze, Sage N Sour, Master Bubba, Master Obi Wan, Skywalker Kush, R2B2, Northern Lights #4 or Dutch Treat. The breeder is from Vancouver Island. Known as "T. Island" by many.

Dude your mom is epic!!!! Those things are huge! I hope they flower well for her.

·

She absolutely is! Even before I found out about her monsters on the deck😎

I really hope so too, she's so excited!

She seems like a real pro!

·

Lol right! I wish I'd known this skill of hers way back when for all that guerilla gardening.

If she wasn't retired, I'm 100% sure I could get her work in the industry on these photos alone 😂

·
·

Isn't this the perfect job to do when retired?

·
·
·

That's a very good point, maybe I'll talk to her about it later this week🤔

I would really love to meet the lady why not show her smoke.io? there is alot of things people would like to do before they go and for me this would really be to meet this lady where I come from all the older people wants to send you to hell when they find out you smoke weed my family didn't want anything to do with me when they found out for a good 3 years anyway i'm stoned and loving this site peace

I will try my best, she just got a device last Christmas and she's learned how to use "the Facebook" so (if I get it set up for her) I'm sure she'd be able to use smoke.io without too many hassles.

I always feel very blessed to have her, but hearing stories like yours (and maaany of my friends experienced the same thing as you) just makes me appreciate her even more.

Wow mom is killing it over there. Extra "tea" parties this winter for sure. You have to keep us update on this one.

{ "what": "happens when I do this" }

your mom sounds like one amazing person I have never met her but it feels like I need to know her not just because of the plant but just the way you told your story and you should tell her there is a guy in South Africa that never got his plant that big even after his 5th attempt I mean it didn't even carry bud's and yeah that person is me so don't be hating she is doing a great job and great story man really got into it you have no idea lol
