How Is it Possible to keep a plant going for year's like mother plants,
sure i seen one in the sensi shop that was like 30 year's old? is that right?

Anyhow are they just revegged and revegged?
Or are they put in constant vegg like barty's Vegg room?

Just i have come to realise over the course of growing and joining the forums here, that weed isn't a seasonal plant and generally they die at the end of there life..

So thirty years is a long time...

Any advise on keeping a plant that long and any pictures of old plants would be wicked,

Constant vegetative growth in good, consistent conditions; regular pruning and maintenance.

In this way, a single individual plant/root system can be kept in healthy vegetative growth for a year or more. When an individual is nearing the end of its healthy veg life, it's replaced with a clone of itself.
Several sets of back-up clones are kept from each parent plant.

The cycle of vegging and replacement can go on indefinitely.

Not any more.
We used to flower cuts from a couple of particularly old, special mothers, and years ago we had a small mother room, but we never looked after any of the 'master copies' at the Museum.
