Can you take and get a ucessful clone from a plant that's 30 days into flowering with, about, 4-5 more weeks till harvest?
Usually only clone up until the 2nd week of flowering..
I have cloned a plant about 4 weeks into flowering under a 24/7 light and it never switched back to veg the damn thing .. I ended up tossing them waste of time I think... good luck
You can but there is a far lower success rate. Only attempt it if you are any good (at least 75% success rate) at cloning normally. Re-vegging then takes time and produces some strange-looking growth for a while. I would imagine it's a lot easier in an aero-cloner etc but I don't have that luxury.
Everything written on here is a figment of my over-active imagination caused by mental health problems due to low THC levels in my brain. All pictures are posted by a mysterious stranger who hacks into my PC when I'm not looking. I'm not even sure I am real.
I did this exact cloning ... 8 weeks ago...
the 4 clones I took were from two plants that I did not clone for sex [I do this when starting out a seed plant]...
These 4 clones I took late were from a bag seed scrawney plant.
Two weeks back in veg, really strange growth, however, great roots...
I left them in Veg for another 2 weeks,
I didn't really have space or time in veg, [18/6], so I put them back into Bud [12/12 room]....4 weeks ago
They stretched from a 6-8" clone to now a spindley 15 incher...
I don't expect much, [3 of 4 made the trip], from the three...
But, WTF, it can be done...
Yes that's what a trichome is all about...I mean it's like a white river of THC.....
"Look at your fingers... smell them... OMG it's like a heavenly wonderous beautiful scent, of goodness..."
You can clone a plant after harvesting, it is just less likely to root and takes time. I would take as many cuttings as possible to make sure you get one viable clone.

Although monoecious plants are often referred to as "hermaphrodites," true hermaphrodites (which are less common) bear staminate and pistillate structures on individual flowers, whereas monoecious plants bear male and female flowers at different locations on the same plant.
Thanks e'rybody for the advice. I think I'm gonna go ahead with harvest. I'm in the process of picking 3-4 strains for my next round and am planning on taking clones from them. Since it's my first grow, I don't think I've got the skills to keep a clone alive with the odds already against it. I mean, I can always try but would rather focus my attention on healthy, viable clones.
