World’s largest weed plant
Well played, Trevor Rossouw – your plant is a worthy winner indeed.
Rossouw, hailing from East London (yes, something for the people of ‘Slummies’ to cheer about), credits horse poo as being the driving force behind his 3,8-metre tall plant.
[He] said he knew horse poo was good for his wife’s veggies but he had no idea hat it would be even better for his dagga…
“I dug the plant out of a friend’s garden in Elliot when it was about 10cm in October 2018. Builders had discarded some seeds while working on renovations,” said Rossouw.
“I transplanted it to my wife’s veggie garden in East London. She uses only horse manure and homegrown compost – and her veggies are huge and superb.
“I added EnOrmus Bud three times to the soil – in December, January and February – and [the plant] started budding mid-February,” said Rossouw.
Grow it did – feast your eyes on this whopper:
There might be a bigger plant somewhere in the Transkei, or tucked away in Scarborough, but Rossouw can now claim to being South Africa’s ‘bushmaster’ without his friends telling him to rein it in.
(Side note – if you have a bigger plant and want to share it with the world, mail us at [email protected]. You can remain confidential.)
Rossouw wasn’t the only winner, though, with Outdshoorn’s Verdon ‘Don’ Bence being named South Africa’s first “budmaster”. His 158-gram bud, harvested from his own three-metre plant, is also a thing of beauty.

Bigger than a grown man’s arm.
Let’s hear from Bence:
“It was grown outdoor with a lot of love and patience. This lady was part of a couple of other trees but she just took off and I could see she was a performer. I decided to replant her at the height of 2m, straight into the ground. That was when she really started to go crazy,” he said.
He sure loves his plant.
The competition was run by TransfOrmus, manufacturers of enOrmus Bud, a concentrated microbial food for soil and plants. Here’s MD Peter Searll:
“The budmaster was selected as the most appealing big bud, taking size and weight into account. There were longer buds, but they were not as thick or heavy as the winning entry,” he said.
Searll said next year’s competition will include categories such as indoor versus outdoor, seniors, biggest tree and possibly a much requested “smokability” contest.
We are all in favour of this competition going from strength to strength, and why not get the seniors involved.
Peter, if you’re looking for a judge in the “smokability” contest, I reckon Seth could free up a little time.
