The art of cloning plants could be the most useful of all ‘indoor’ techniques. Cloning allows growers to make the most of every female plant and it’s a skill that anyone can master with a little practice.
Cloning Cannabis Plants
Growing from marijuana clones means that you will harvest more bud sooner. Many people who start a garden these days know someone who will give them a few marijuana clones for the simple pleasure of sharing a good thing. Some people sell marijuana clones, often growing an exclusively vegetative garden without ever flowering.
These clonemeisters keep a variety of select mothers from high-quality strains, and grow them on a continuous eighteen hour light cycle. They can make good money selling trays of cuttings, either rooted or simply fresh cut. Rooted marijuana clones are more expensive than fresh cuttings.
How to Clone a Cannabis Plant
Once you have a nice collection of quality marijuana seeds, the next step is of course, quality marijuana plants. In an effort to reduce your expense and time spent with male plants, we introduce “How to Clone Marijuana Plants” (female marijuana plant cloning).
How do I clone marijuana plants ? Tutorial
Cloning is very easy to do, alot of differant techniques are out there, bubblers, powders, soil to many really to mention. However this method is by far the easiest out there. The only thing you need is water, a little bit of light, and the little piece of plant you want to root.
Taking cuttings is one of the most popular ways to propagate a cannabis plant. Often called “cloning” it is a very good method to get multiple cannabis plants that are genetically identical to the “mother” cannabis plant. Many people feel intimidated by the process, and are a bit leery to attempt “cloning”. If you are one of those people, relax, it’s a relatively easy process.
What follows are step by step instructions for a simple procedure that works for most types of cannabis plants.
How To Make Clones
Cloning is easy enough for anyone to do successfully, guaranteed. The information is everywhere: as close as your local nursery, or at your fingertips on the Internet. The first person to introduce me to the art of making cuttings was my grandmother, though my mother really entrenched the knowledge. My great-grandparents were farmers who earned their living off the land, and to this day I still associate the taste of a fresh-picked strawberry with the few memories I have of Nan and Granddad and the farm. The knowledge they learned while growing up was passed down to the next generation, both by tale and by example. The task my grandmother so impressed me with was simple gardening know-how for her – the ability to take one plant and make many from it. She would cut branches off a plant with a sharp knife, stick it into a solution (hers was made by soaking pieces of willow tree branches in water, a home-made rooting hormone) and, within a week or so, the cuttings would grow roots and become plants themselves. Cannabis growers call this cloning, but regular gardeners call it “taking cuttings”. Hey – asexual reproduction by any other name is still as sweet!
