Those are very impressive plants, maybe one day I'll take a swing at growing something like that. Lol baby steps first so I have to learn to grow them big in pots then move to should in ground. Leaning organic soil is next but on my list but if I chose to grow organic I'll end up looking for a certified organic farm and pick up diet from them. I'm lazy but not stupid hahaThe key to growing trees is not necessarily starting them super super early but LOTS of amazing soil and a hard core training program from the start.
These were spouted from seed in feb and then put into 400 gallons of my soil blend. Some of them did well over 7 pounds a piece. All 100% organic. View attachment 1028983
Now can you grow a couple of pounds in a 5 gallon bucket? Yes... but it takes skill. This method you can just literally transplant and let them explode with little work on your part.
I scrog them from the start and then fim a few times and then turn into bushy beasts.
This yr I'm only doing 100 gallons that is why they are smaller.
