CULTIVATION How to Grow A Marijuana Bonsai Tree: Step-by-Step

0

One of the more creative ways to cultivate cannabis at home is to grow a marijuana bonsai tree.

Seriously, you can train a cannabis plant to grow into pretty much any shape you can imagine. And if you do it right, you can train your plant to look just like a real life marijuana bonsai tree.

The only difference is that your marijuana bonsai tree will get you high! Along with just being a fun way to grow, this approach to cultivating marijuana actually has a number of different benefits. It helps you grow plants that are small and manageable but that still produce plenty of buds, it can help keep your plant healthy and disease-free, and it looks dope as sh*t.

The simplest and safest way to grow a marijuana bonsai tree is to train the plant’s branches once you’ve got a strong and healthy baby plant already growing.

To figure out how to get yourself a well-established young cannabis plant, check out our basic guide to getting started with growing at home.

What You’ll Need To Grow A Marijuana Bonsai Tree
Potted baby marijuana plant
Drill with small drill bit
Gardening twine or thin wire with plastic covering
Thin wooden stake

Step 1: Drill holes in the pot
Use your drill to make a series of holes in the top edge of the pot. Later on, you’ll be running your twine or wire through these holes so be sure whatever you’ll be using can fit through the holes you’re making.

Step 2: Train the trunk
The first step to really start getting your baby plant to look like a marijuana bonsai tree is to use your small wooden stake to train the trunk to grow into the shape you want it to.

Very gently press the wooden stake down into the soil alongside the trunk of your plant. You don’t want to damage the roots, so take it easy.

Step 2: Train the trunk
The first step to really start getting your baby plant to look like a marijuana bonsai tree is to use your small wooden stake to train the trunk to grow into the shape you want it to.

Very gently press the wooden stake down into the soil alongside the trunk of your plant. You don’t want to damage the roots, so take it easy.

Once your stake is down, you can gently bend or wrap the trunk around it.

Now run a piece of twine or wire through whatever hole is nearest to the trunk. Loop the twine or wire over the trunk and tie it into place. This will keep your trunk growing in whatever direction you’ve just positioned it.

Here’s a close look at what we’re talking about:

Step 3: Train the branches
As your cannabis plant continues to grow, you need to continue training the individual branches to grow into the bonsai shape you’re envisioning.

To do this, you’ll basically use your twine or wire, along with the holes you drilled into the top of the pot, to train the branches to grow in the direction you need them to.

Of course, it’s your design. So if you want a section to start growing taller, then don’t tie it down as much. If you want a section to grow more horizontally than tall, then that’s where you’d want to tie it down.

Step 4: Prune branches as needed
From time to time you can also prune back new growth to help keep your plant in its bonsai shape.

When you do this, you need to be very careful that you don’t accidentally snip off a main branch and end up damaging the plant.

Only trim branches that are new offshoots coming out of a primary branch. And when you snip, do it carefully and gently. We suggest using a pair of sharp scissors.

This step will not only help keep your plant looking like an awesome bonsai tree, it will also help improve air circulation. Better air flow will decrease the chance that your plant will get too humid, moldy, or that the soil will grow fungus.

Step 5: Harvest buds
Eventually, your marijuana bonsai tree will enter the flowering phase. Keep your eye on the hair-like trichomes covering your plant’s flowers.

When the trichomes turn milky white, you can snip off the flowers.

Hang them upside down in a well-ventilated room to dry. When you can snap the stem with your fingers, it’s time to cure the buds.

To do this, place them in glass jars, seal the lid, and put the jar into a dark, dry place. Check the jars every day. If it gets too humid, take the lid off and let them air out. Then put the lid back on.

Once the buds are semi-dry but still sticky, you’re ready to light up. As you enjoy the fruits of your cultivation labor, sit back and enjoy the beauty of your marijuana bonsai tree.

Why This Girl Got Expelled From College

0

As a 19-year-old Freshman at Oregon State University, Kendra Sunderland spent a lot of time in the library. What could be wrong with that?

Sunderland told INSIDE EDITION, “You know, I’m known as the library girl.”
But Kendra is getting attention across the nation for all the wrong reasons. So, what did Kendra do? She made a very, very naughty live webcam from of all places, the university library. Now she’s trying her best to explain herself in this INSIDE EDITION exclusive.

Kendra was silly enough to film herself getting half-naked in the college’s always busy and bustling library and touching herself for the camera. Was this a bit of a naughty dare between her and a boyfriend? Perhaps not, because she was silly enough to upload it all over the Internet afterwards.

“The idea of being there, someone could catch me all of the sudden. You know, what would I do?” Sunderland explained.

INSIDE EDITION asked Sunderland , “Are you shocked at how far you went on that video?”

She responded, “Watching it as it went on I was like, oh my goodness, why did I do that?”More than a million people saw the video online. Unfortunately for Kendra, that included local police.She now faces a $6,000 fine for lewd behavior and a year in jail, and Kendra said her parents were not happy about it. Sunderland told INSIDE EDITION, “She [mom] doesn’t like anything that has to do with it and I’m sure my Dad doesn’t either.”

Kendra left school after the incident and is now banned from setting foot on campus.She explained to INSIDE EDITION, “I kind of expected that. I was a little upset. I still wanted to go to the basketball games, I really liked those.”

The employees at the library had no idea she was in the back corner making this naughty video, and she didn’t actually get caught at the time of filming. It was only when an official at the school found the video online (how would you explain “stumbling” across a naughty college girl video online, I wonder…) that she was busted by the college’s authorities.

Making dirty films in a public space like this is not only enough to get yourself expelled from just about any college in the US (okay, all of them probably), it’s actually illegal. When news came out about Kendra’s video, she was arrested by Oregon State Police for public indecency.

Police cited her, but then released her shortly afterwards. Kendra is still going to need to appear before a judge and defend her actions though. If she (or her lawyer) doesn’t do a good enough job at this, she could be looking at a $6000 fine and even 12 months in prison! High price to pay for a silly video…

Antifa protester holds up a convoy of police vans so the officer steps out of the van and lands the protester a right hook. No hesitation, just whaam!

This may not please Angela Merkel but it got the job done and the convoy moved forward. The protester won’t forget the incident in a hurry either.

Antifa have become a worldwide problem and the MSM and democrats seem to be protecting, and even funding them. This Hamburg police officer doesn’t take any crap from them though.

Anheuser-Busch brewery pauses beer production to can emergency drinking water

0

The Anheuser-Busch Brewery put beer production on hold this week, instead canning safe drinking water to distribute to flooding victims affected by Hurricane Harvey.

More than 50,000 cans of emergency drinking water will be sent from the brewing company’s factory in Cartersville, Ga., a spokesperson for Anheuser-Busch said to FOX5.

The water will be distributed at Red Cross shelters in Baton Rouge, La., where Flash Flood Watch is in effect through Thursday, according to the National Weather Service.

“Throughout the year, we periodically pause beer production at our Cartersville, Ga., brewery to produce emergency canned drinking water so we are ready to help out communities across the country in times of crisis,” said Sarah Schilling, brewmaster at the Anheuser-Busch brewery in a statement.

“Putting our production and logistics strengths to work by providing safe, clean drinking water is the best way we can help in these situations,” she said.

Surveillance video show police openly mocking black burglary victim

0

Two Washington, DC, cops are captured on video disrespecting a burglary victim.

Clarence Williams was robbed on August 8, in the afternoon. His private surveillance clearly shows the burglar but also caught the officers acting inappropriately.

One of the officers seems to break into dance twice and one of the officers pointed to protein powder on the counter and laughingly stated, “He is probably gay.”

Williams was asked why the police would assume he was gay and he said, “I guess because I am a black male, I have a nice house, I’m single, and all the expensive things that were stolen from my home, I guess I would just have to be gay right?”

The cops came to the house because of a burglar alarm but all they did when they arrived was check the front door. Williams was out of the country when his neighbor let him know that the police were at his home.

“They made a comment to my neighbor, saying: ‘Well what do you expect. You live in Southeast,’” Williams said. “As if I am not as important as the people in northwest.

“I pay my taxes just like everyone else. Do I not deserve the same protection? I guess a fourth of the city is not worthy of being protected because robberies and burglaries are a way of life in Southeast.”

He was horrified when he watched the footage. He said they “were acting as if this was a joke. This is serious, this is my life.”

“After viewing the video I called 911 and requested that an official come out that night,” Williams said. “A sergeant came to my home and I played the video for her.

“She basically tried to downplay the entire thing by saying she knew the officer, and she meant no harm.

“She also said they see murders, killings shootings, rapes, etc. and that she was just trying to keep a good attitude in a bad situation, but that didn’t sit well with me,” he stated.

Williams emailed his district council member to report what happened and he said, ‘Within 15 minutes I had a call from the commander and he asked me to let him try to handle it internally before I went to the media. So that’s what I did,” he said.

The next day, the female police officer who was caught in the video came over to apologize to Williams.

“I can tell she is truly sorry and just made a mistake. She came on her own volition no one told her to which I thought was admirable,” he said.

Williams was told that an internal investigation was underway and he noticed over the next couple of weeks that there was an increased police presence in the neighborhood. He saw a cruiser outside his home and decided to go and thank the officers for their work in the community.

“I go to say thank you to whomever is in the car, and it’s the same officers I was told were on desk duty,” Williams said.

“At that point, I felt like the police were just lying to keep me quiet, so I decided to go public,” he said.

Breitbart Against Trump

0

The web publication seems to have turned against Trump out of frustration that his own people feel free to criticize him.

Perhaps the real story here is that the Cabinet is turning against Donald Trump. Breitbart is drawing attention to that face and (I think, appropriately) calling out the President for displaying “weakness.” The mainstream media, of course, will always present those who criticize Trump as sources of sound analysis. Breitbart has a different perspective.

Thus, Sunday’s lead story at Breitbart was headlined: “Projecting Weakness: President Trump Allows Inner Circle to Publicly Disparage Him as Globalists March.”

In the past several days, several members of President Donald J. Trump’s inner circle have publicly disparaged him—and the president has done nothing public to stop them.

First, National Economic Council (NEC) director Gary Cohn—the former number two banker at Goldman Sachs and a top Democrat who joined the Trump administration after the president’s election—bashed the president in an on-record interview with the Financial Times.

[…]
The Washington Post added in its own reporting that Cohn was overheard in a Long Island restaurant trashing President Trump.

“On Wednesday evening, Cohn complained loudly about Trump while dining with friends at a Long Island restaurant called the Frisky Oyster,” the Washington Post’s Damien Paletta and Philip Rucker reported on Friday. “Cohn explained to his companions — in a loud voice overheard by others — that he had to be careful not to give Trump too much lead time about some new ideas because the president could disclose the information prematurely and upend the planning process, according to a person familiar with the dinner.”
Now, after Cohn’s threats to resign over his disagreements with the president, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson appeared on Fox News Sunday this weekend to also disparage the president. Tillerson declined to say that the president supports American values, saying that the State Department does but that “the president speaks for himself.”
In addition, Tillerson defended globalists arguing that he does not “see any division” between those who support globalization and those who support the “America First” agenda that the president campaigned on.

Gang of teens kidnapped and raped a girl, 15, on Facebook Live – but NONE of the 40 people who were watching the video called the police

– Police are searching for five or six males suspected of sexually assaulting the 15-year-old during a Facebook Live stream on Sunday
– The teen was found on Tuesday after she went missing from suburban Chicago
– Detectives say about 40 people watched the attack on Facebook while it was happening but no one reported it to police
– Girl’s mother approached police on Monday with screen grabs taken from the video showing the attack
– Family members had contacted the mother to alert her of the Facebook video

A 15-year-old girl who was gang-raped during a Facebook Live video after she went missing from her home has been reunited with her mother.

Chicago Police said the teenager was found on Tuesday and they are now searching for the five or six men or boys suspected of sexually assaulting her.

About 40 people viewed the attack on Facebook while it was happening on Sunday but none of them reported it to police, according to department spokesman Anthony Guglielmi.

The girl’s mother, Stacey Elkins, alerted police to the incident on Monday after showing them screen grabs taken from the video.

The 15-year-old girl was reunited with her mother on Tuesday after she went missing and was gang-raped during a Facebook Live stream on Sunday

She said her daughter went out to a store in Chicago’s Lawndale neighborhood on Sunday afternoon but failed to return home.

She later learned her daughter was the subject of the ‘disgusting’ Facebook Live video after family members and friends contacted the mother.

The distraught mother alerted police and launched an appeal to find her daughter, telling reporters she didn’t know if the men had taken her hostage or if she was scared and hiding.

She told CBS the footage showed the girl in various stages of undress with a group of males. Elkins said her daughter looked scared and the men or boys were being abusive toward her.

‘I saw her face and the look on her face was just pure fear. And I, I just want my daughter home,’ she said.

The footage was removed from Facebook after police contacted the social media website.

Detectives are now trying to track down the owner of the Facebook page and the others in the video.

The girl is being interviewed by detectives who are treating the case as a sexual assault.

Her mother said she had gone missing once before but she was found later that day in a nearby park.

This Is What Actual Racism Looks Like : Warning Graphic Content

0

While the media continues to parrot stories about racism in society and make a big deal about relatively minor incidents and talk about unconscious racism, they ignore or underreport true racist incidents. Unfortunately, our biased media only wants to highlight racism when it appears to be perpetrated by a police officer in self-defense against a minority. The media significantly underreports incidents when they do not fit this pre-existing narrative. Real racism occurs when a group of people viciously beat and harass someone simply because of their race and because they entered the wrong neighborhood. Regardless of what the media says the attacker and victim can be of any race and in all cases it should be condemned. What appears to be a young girl and her brother were taking a short-cut through a public park in Indianapolis. Unfortunately, they did not have the right skin color. The two were beaten by a gang of thugs caught on a cell phone video. Although the clip went viral on social media, the mainstream media didn’t want it too become the huge national incident earlier cases, such as the Michael Brown incident, and most major news media either completely ignored it or underreported it. If races had been reversed it would have been equally horrible and disgusting. But what would have been different is this would have been on the homepage of CNN for weeks and they would continue to cover it for months. Obama and Eric Holder would have given numerous press conferences. Sharpton would be on the scene. But since the attack doesn’t fit the liberal agenda none of that will happen. The worst part about the incident was that all of the spectators knew what was coming. They got out their cameras and video recorders, waiting to watch this brutal beat down. These thugs watching and participating in the incident have no regard for decency and showed their racist attitude. Despite the media not covering it, this is what real racism looks like. If you listen closely to the video that was uploaded on Live Leak, you can hear the crowd screaming for more blood. They waited with anticipation for the fight to begin and cheered on the muggers as they did their dirty deed. The leader of the gang, known as Nook Babilee, took control of the situation and led the group in the fight. The victim’s brother tried to step in and stop the fight but also took significant blows. Real racism happens when people are targeted specifically for their race and violently attacked for no other reason. Racism does not occur when a cop is doing their job to protect the public or when a well-meaning citizen is defending their own home. The media should remember that next time they parrot a racism story to fit their own preconceived notions of justice. Also some say showing incidents like this increases racism. Apparently those people feel like these incidents should be swept under the rug. We believe that only showing incidents that fit the media narrative actually increases racism by perpetuating the false narrative that only certain skin colors are capable of racism. Its better to highlight and condemn all such incidents. There are good honest people of all races. There are also, unfortunately, violent and racist individuals of all races.

Trump is winning the statue war

0

With Democrats howling about tearing down statues and supporting violent protesters, Trump is free to run the nation.

From Trump Tower in New York City, President Trump implied the removal of the statue of General Robert E. Lee could be the beginning of a trend of removing statues of historic figures on public display. He asks ‘where does it stop?

Just last month, Democrats were talking about how they needed to rebrand their party around a positive message. They wanted to move beyond simple anti-Trumpism and identity politics, and craft an economic appeal to the white working-class voters who deserted them in 2016. Now here we are with Democrats going all in to refight the Civil War. Well done. A glance at the electoral map shows how foolish this is. Donald Trump triumphed in 2016 by increasing Republican margins in a swath of northern counties stretching from western Pennsylvania across the Great Lakes, netting him Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin and the presidency. Voters there are more likely to see this issue as a radical temper tantrum than anything affecting their daily lives.

Polling gives reason for skepticism. An NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist poll last week found that 62% of respondents thought statues honoring leaders of the Confederacy should “remain as a historical symbol.” Only 27% of those polled wanted the statues removed, and presumably they vote Democratic anyway. Perhaps party leaders see this issue as a way to motivate the minority base that failed to energize for Hillary Clinton, but even among African Americans, a 44% plurality said let the statues stay. So it’s just bad politics. It gets worse. Once the issue was uncorked, it ballooned out of control. Last week, Trump wondered aloud where the iconoclastic movement would end, asking rhetorically, “Is it George Washington next week, and is it Thomas Jefferson the week after?” Right on cue, a Chicago pastor wants Washington’s name removed from a park, and Al Sharpton comes out against the Jefferson memorial.
