Seeds.. (Really, they are not hard to grow)
Plants grown from seed can be less than predictable. Like children, they may resemble one parent or both, but rarely are they a perfect mix. A clone is a cutting from a plant, and will have the exact DNA, therefore the exact same properties as the mother
Cannabis plants grown from seed produce a Tap Root, cloned plants simply cannot-they produce a fibrous root system only. The Tap Root is a survival advantage in nature, as it is in any growing condition. A tap root not only more firmly anchors the plant down for better support, it is capable of driving downward to great depths in search of water and nutrients; an immeasurable advantage when growing outdoor crops in hot and dry conditions.
Seeds are always a clean and fresh start-helping to ensure that no harmful pesticides or fungicides will have ever been used in the production of medicinal cannabis.”
The argument continues but after a large spike in clone usage over the last few years it appears that seeds, at least among the more serious Medical Cannabis growers, are making a comeback.
What is a clone?
Plant cloning is the production of a cell, cell component, or plant that is genetically identical to the unit or individual from which it was derived.The term“clone” is derived from the Greek word klon, meaning a slip or twig. Hence, it is an appropriate choice. Plants have been “cloned” from stem cuttings or whole-plant divisions for many centuries, perhaps dating back as far as the beginnings of agriculture.
The advantages of plant cell, tissue, and organ culture technologies include a more rapid production of plants, taking weeks instead of months or years. Much less space is required (square feet instead of field plots).
When you purchase a clone you are guaranteed a female plant, versus growing from seed where the possibility for a male plant may be evident especially with non feminized seeds.
Our clones at the time of sale are more like our competitors pre teens, we do this to ensure both your successful grow and we know that even with a novice grower odds of success are high!
Pre-Teen Cannabis Plant
Pre-Teens are typically plants that have been rooted for a period of time and have grown to become established. These are no longer clones but small plants. Ours typically are in a 3"x 3" container, and they are generally 4-8 inches tall and already developing additional branching, our plants are ready for explosive growth.
Teen Cannabis Plant
Teens are plants that have been growing in a 1 gal pot for a period of time and have reached 14-20 inches in height. This size is ideal for many growers who are looking to reduce their vegetative period and are looking for plants that are incredibly well established.
