How to Clone Tomato Plants

How to Clone Tomato Plants

“When most people think of cloning, they think laboratories, bio-hazards and maybe even one of the Star Wars movie sequels. In reality, cloning your favorite tomato plants is quick and easy. It’s a great way to propagate tomato plants and jump start your winter indoor garden. Because clones are genetically identical to the original, they should share all the properties of the parent plant. This method is great for propagating hybrid varieties that don’t breed true from second-generation seeds.

Just keep one plant inside over winter and use it to create the next spring’s plantings. It’s also a great way to save money. If you buy one large potted tomato plant from a local vendor, you can clone it and get extra plants for free! This is a great trick for expensive heirloom varieties.”
