Clones and cloning

The process of cloning can be called an asexual reproduction. Clones are rooted cuttings that are genetically unrecognizable from the original plant. Thanks to its many advantages, cloning is popular with both large scale and home growers. With the right method, cloning can save you a lot of money and brings stability and sustainability to your garden.


Unity Is Power

Thanks to cloning you can achieve harvest consisting of the exact replicas of your favorite strain without spending loads of money on expensive seeds. They will be genetically identical meaning you will get plants with the same effect and substance content – unlike the seeds, where one strain can have many phenotypes varying in visual aspects, aroma and effects.

When you encounter a strain that you really like, you can create a so-called mother plant and gradually create cuttings from it – lasting possibly for many years. If you want to preserve and spread strains with a particular taste, cannabinoid profile, harvest, growth span, and the length of the flowering stage that would suit your needs, cloning is definitely the right choice.

It saves both time and considerable amounts of money. Thanks to cloning you can be sure your harvest is genetically unified and nothing can surprise you. Besides, it is the answer to the self-sufficiency and sustainability of your garden. In suitable conditions you can maintain one phenotype for as many harvests as you’d like. All that without the necessity of planting (and mainly buying) new seeds again and again.

The start is not very complicated and, if you proceed correctly, you will be rewarded with an almost everlasting supply of top quality cuttings. Instructions on how to make cuttings can be found anywhere on the Internet.
