Benefits of growing from cannabis clones
Guaranteed female plants
Female plants produce cannabinoid- and terpene-rich cannabis flower. When you cut clones from a mother plant that you know is female, you can guarantee that every clone you cut will also be female.
Seeds are expensive to purchase, especially feminized seeds that produce almost exclusively female plants. If you’re not buying feminized seeds, half of your plants will end up being unproductive males, costing you valuable time and resources.
Every clone will have the same characteristics as your mother plant. If your mother plant is robust and a high quality strain, you won’t have to worry about inconsistent quality or potency issues when you clone.
Shorter time to harvest
Plants that you grow from clones will be ready to harvest faster than plants that you grow from seeds. By eliminating the need for germination and a lengthy seedling stage, you can shave up to a month off your time to harvest when growing from clones.
How to plant cannabis clones
Cannabis Clones Frequently Asked Questions
When growing from a young established clone plant, there is no need to worry about the starting age of the plant.
As soon as your clone plant establishes a healthy root system, plant growers can start following the “flowering stage” process.
For the best grow conditions, young plants should be maintained in their vegetative (vegging / veg) stage for up to 60 days.
In well maintained plant clones, the flowering stage should take between 2 – 3 weeks.
Growing from seeds can be tricky. If you aren’t buying your seeds from a well established seed bank, you could be buying “duds”, which could possibly not germinate or even grow into something else.
Growing from the young plant clone stage is much easier, as the plant carries an exact replica of the Mother Plant, plus the clone has an established young root system from which to start growing.
With a fine misting bottle, its recommended that you spray a fine mist of water twice per day.
When spraying with a water mist, the nutrients in the leaves are diluted and the clone automatically then searches for more nutrients in your growing medium.
If you want your young clones to root and grow faster, you will need to give them as much lighting as possible. The optimum period of lighting is 24 hours a day. (be careful not to “over stress” the plant with lights that are too low)
If you are on electricity saving you could take the lighting period down to 18 hours per day – which will mean that your clones will take longer to grow and root.
you should keep the light on your clones 24 hours a day (this makes them root and grow faster) the only reason to do 18 would be if you wanted to save a little on the electric bill. … the more light you can give them (without burning them of course) the faster they will root and grow.
One of the biggest complications for cannabis clone growers, (or cannabis seed growers) a white fuzzy substance on the plant stems and or leaves.
This white substance could be what plagues Cannabis growers (clones or seeds) from all over the world. WPM – white powder mould.
One needs to inspect your plants daily for this pesky mould, and take immediate action. It’s best to eradicate the mould, immediately as the white powder mould will damage and then finally kill your plant and all the other plants that are nearby.
White Powder Mould sheds airborne microscopic mycelium spores, which attach itself to plants and results in stunted growth, where the new leaves or flowers, or stems of the plant become disfigured and die.
There are many home remedy solutions including Apple Cider Vinger ; Baking Soda and dishwasher mixture.
We recommend the most effective method is mixture of 50% strength Hydrogen Pyroxide (available from registered hydroponic suppliers) It’s important to follow the instructions that appears on the bottle of 50% strength Hydrogen Pyroxide mixture. As over dosing can also kill a plant.
I have watered my new clones, but they still look droopy. Why?
Remember your new clones have come from a warm, humid and light filled environment. The young clones now need to go through some self-adjustment to tolerate their new growing environment – which in many cases this could be outside.
No need to worry, they will bounce back and start growing again.
If you have watered your clones sufficiently and they still look like they are wilting, its time to look at other growing factors. Consider the humidity, light and / or temperature factors.
The best growing practice is to introduce your new clones to their new environment gently and slowly. Careful consideration needs to be given to where to plant the new clones that receive direct sunlight and a gentle wind
Don’t be fooled by a droopy plant that has received the correct amount of water. Your plant can look droopy for a number of reasons – Let’s look at “Root Rot” infection, which can make the clone plant look like it has been either over or under watered.
How to check if your young plants are infected with “Root Rot” – gently dig the grow medium / soil away with a gloved finger, to reach subterranean roots of the plant (do not tear or pull at the roots)
If you find that the roots are slighty brown / or the roots have this mucous (snot) substance on them the chances are your plants have “Root Rot”
Cannabis plants with root rot can sometimes look squishy or full of mucous which can almost look like they’re covered in a heap of snot!
Cannabis clones (and seeded plants) can all suffer from “Root Rot” which means the plants have been infected with a type of Pathogen.
Pathogens vary from one country to the next as well as from one area to the next. Thus it’s extremely difficult to identify what pathogen is alive in your area or your plant.
We recommend that your cannabis plant’s grow area features well drained soil and the plant roots do not sit for days in a very wet environment.
We also recommend that if you are unsure with your plant root rot infection – reach out to another experienced grower, or your closest registered hydroponic supplier.
