Growing seed Or growing clones?
I cant get cuttings to root. im ordering seeds weekly and growing from seed.
whats the take on growing from seed as sopposed to growing from clones?
seems like growing from seed would have more potency consider the stress factor?
Clones are the way to go... Why can't you keep a clone alive? Whats your approach on it?
As far as i've ever been able to tell there isn't a noticeable difference between seeds and clones as far as potency. My clones have always been just as good as their original mothers. What do you do when you germinate seeds and grow 'em out finding a star amoung your seed stock? When you find that one special lady you want to save her to keep her around and treat her nice. Keep practicing your cloning methods and dont be scared to try new things. Also keep in mind some methods and some strains can take 3-4 weeks to show roots.
Good 3rd post!

iver ordered nothing but feminized seeeds up to this point and have had all of them sprout. i order about 8 every 2 weeks. which keeps me going.
ive been pretty satisfied wtih my orders and germs from this seed bank so ill keep it going. but i just wanted to know in advance what to prepare for.
seeds and clones have different advantages.Some clones can take up to a month to root depending when you take them and with in that time i could have vegged a shit load of seedlings but,clones can go str8 to flowering and the seed plants have to wait a week or 2.
for the footnote i have no negative in this term.

If you are not growing 10-20+ plants at a time just use seed. No reason to keep a mother for clones if you are only growing 1-6 plants or so at a time. Clones are also good for sog where you will have multiple smaller plants rotating in a perpetual cycle much of the time.
The only advantages of clones is faster veg times and knowing you will have a female every time. But if you use fem seeds and have a good environment, no light leaks and know how to not stress a plant too much you really don't have to worry about hermaphrodites.
I have always grown from seeds.
If you are ordering seeds weekly it sounds like you are doing a perpetual sog or something, which clones through a mother would be a better option.
Being I only have space for 4 girls and can get 2-3 pounds off them every 60 I really have no need for clones.
I've heard seeds are more pest and disease prone. Disease not sure but have noticed pests ase less on my seeds than the plants next to mine which are clones. Just my opinion. Good luck brotha
You mean pest and disease "resistant" not prone. I agree though.
