By keeping a selection of bonsai cannabis plants, growers can also vary their crops without the need to cultivate plants from seeds every time they want to introduce a different variety.
Instead, you’ll want to preserve your bonsai cannabis plant for decorative purposes, as a source of cuttings for propagation of larger plants, and just because you’ve grown so fond of the little guy. So you’ll need to ‘top’ your plant, and restart the vegetative stage so that it will continue to grow.
