Thanks alanboy420 yes I do most my plants from seeds that become my mother plants, the question was in hopes of settling a disagreement with a friend who also grows and swears by cloning clones. He argues there is no use for a mother plant because the bud will be the same no matter how many times you cloned "down". I say the bud will not be as good on a 10th generation as it would be on a first generation. Just trying to get another opinion on it.
I want to sail away to a distant shore..........an' live like an ape man.
