Keeping clones in stasis is the best way to ensure that you have a backup if your original cuttings will fail to grow healthy or that you have an extra for future use. Holding Cannabis clones can be done by using the most common kitchenware all over the world, the fridge or the refrigerator
The clones can be safely kept in the refrigerator for a good eight weeks by putting them in Ziploc and placing them in the crisper drawer inside the fridge. Allow the cuttings to breathe every once a week by opening the Ziploc so that the cuttings can last up to eight weeks. Failing to do so may render the cuttings useless as they will not survive without being able to breathe.
Here is how you can keep your own clones safely using the fridge method:
Get the cuttings as how you usually would but make sure that you have a longer stem because you will need to cut the stems before replanting them. The needed cut would be at least half an inch, so make sure that your stem is long enough to be cut and planted.
If you are using a Ziploc, put as much air into the bag so that when the cuttings are put into the crisper drawer, the cushion will protect them from being bumped with the other things. You may also use a glass or an ice bucket for your cuttings with enough water in it for the stems to be submerged but this method may not be stealthy for you.
When you are ready to plant or use the cuttings, do not immediately plant those that are just removed from the fridge. Warm them first by putting them in a glass of water outside the fridge for about 30 mins to an hour.
Cuttings that are stored in the fridge for more than two weeks usually take 10 days to root and be established after 14 days so wait patiently.
Make sure to follow all the steps above when you are cloning your Cannabis so you can plant them and use them in the future. Keeping clones using the fridge method may open other possibilities in terms of the time it takes for them to grow. These cuttings may have different time as their mothers so after planting it, observe it keenly and see the differences. You can use this in the future when you hold another batch of cloned cannabis again using the fridge method
