Can You Take Clones from Flowering Plants?
I have two female plants that have been flowering for a little over two weeks.
Can I get a clone from them or is it too late?
Yes you can. They will probably take a little bit longer to root as they regress to the veg light cycle again. I've never done this before, but have heard from multiple sources it is definitely doable.

Will this cause them to turn into hermies. The mother plant due to stress or the clone?
yeah you can take cuttings during flower, although be prepared to wait quite a while before they start to grow normally
it will depend how far into flowering they are if buds have formed or not
they root in normal time no delay on rooting , but they will not grow in the vegative stage like a normal cutting
they will act like a rejuvenated plant, and grow distorted shoots popping out of the bud growth for a while
can take 2-3 weeks after rooting before they get back into the veg stage and grow normally
Yes, and some people believe it is actually better than veg cuttings. Purportedly, once the clone roots, it will grow like crazy. Also, if the plant has been getting low N and high P, it will help form roots faster. There is a name for this method but it escapes me at the moment. Megacloning or something, can anybody remember?
If you take shoots with small marble size buds as a clone and root it then veg it it is known as monster cropping the plants look strange but branch like crazy and you can get some really desirable results. This is a picture from a clone that was taken from a two week flowering mother.
this is a plant growing in the rejuvenating phase , it produces the same effect as re harvesting , its nothing unique

I have taken them as late as pre-flowering stage and ya they root and start to try to flower again in 18/6 but will revert after a few days.
I prefer to take them 1-2 weeks into flower without any pre-flowers or flowers.
So an your trying to say an extra week to start the reveg isn't worth all that side branching. You crazy LOL. You meant re vegging a harvested plant not re harvesting right? You trying to say there are no advantages to that either? Have you ever done it?
