Has Anyone Grown Plant As Perennial?

    My son tells of a friend who had a large plant in his backyard that had been growing about 5 years. The stalk was bigger than his arm and it was very potent. I guess they just picked the buds off. I’d like to try this.

    Has anyone else ever kept a plant going more than one season?

    It is certainly possible. I have a number of times cut back my plants, reveged them and budded again. I have done this twice to the one crop (for a total of three crops from one plant) But each successive crop is smaller than the last.
    One of the major contributers to whether this will be possible is the strain of the plant. Roughly, cannabis is divided into cannabis sativa, and cannabis indica.
    Sativas are big tropical varieties, and will happily grow and grow, whereas indicas are small and have a limited lifespan and will not perform well when re-grown.

    It’s always worth a try.

    There has been alot of chatter about this lately.

    I see this as a trait that shows how stable the strain is.
    The less unstable the more likely to hermie.

    I’ll be watchin’ my 2 Boyz this Fall.

    got 3 that have been out since January,
    showed sex and re-vegged.

    Actually here in central Texas they record cold Hours instead of days.
    Of course I can’t find what I read to see how they worded it
    But we were 300-400 cold hours a year

    Oh yeah, It cain’t be done Naturally

    But I’ve never been one to do anything Naturally and NORML-ly.

    had a pepper (Habenaro) that produced two crops for me.
    I brought it in during the winter, Cinci gets cold about that time of the year.

    I am way, way South. This year, I was super lazy. About June I threw some bag-weed seeds into a large pot. I got one nice auto-flower but the rest were sun-light dependent. Without really thinking, I put them on my porch so as to be under a ceiling-fan/light all summer/Fall. After awhile, I realized the light, integrated into the ceiling-fan, was hindering the flower. Finally I shut-off the light around November and got some nice budz. I am harvesting now (finally), and believe it or not, a few really nice tight and amber budz (after being tightly trimmed during ripening) are ready. I’ve made my pruning cuts close to the flower so as to keep the budz growing and tight.

    Now, if I am not mistaken, I am sure a new vegetative grow is happening on all the branches;
