If you are a newbie in the cannabis farming, there are still a lot of things you need to know. One of the most important is whether you will use seeds or clones. When you say seeds, of course, it means the usual seeds that you can buy from the seed banks.
If you will choose clones, you can do the process yourself or maybe you can also find a provider online. As cloning is not really that well-known unlike the use of seeds, this article will try to orient you everything about it.
When you say clones, it means you need a mother plant. Choosing a mother plant must be done with utmost care as the characteristics of the clone will almost be the same as that of the mother’s. Aside from that, you can also use that mother plant a number of times.
So why should you choose to clone over seeds? What are the advantages?
Actually, the main advantage, if you use clones, is the fact that the cycle of cannabis cultivation is decreased. You will skip the germination stage in this process.
It can also be affordable being there will be no need for you to buy the seeds. You can just take the cuttings from the mother plant. Of course, it is already given that you choose the mother plant properly. Note that the characteristics of the mother plant will be passed to the clones and you can even use it for a number of times.
There will be no need for you to guess if the plant will end up female or male as you can do that with the mother plant. If the cuttings are from a feminized mother plant, it goes without saying that the clones will be female as well.
You are assured of the traits as well. Though of course, the result of the harvest will also depend on the way you grow the clones, still it would be good to know that if you do it right, the result is just like that of the mother plant.
Yes, there might be some cons as well in using clones but if you weigh the pros and the cons, you will find that there are more positive results for sure compared when you use seeds. Your only goal now is to find a really high-quality mother plant to ensure that clones are high quality as well.
