i have 1 week old clone. Can i take clones off in month or should i wait till 2 monthes
You should be fine taking clones off in a month, remember is your clone is as mature as the original plant it came from its just a real small for its age.lol
so if my clone is like two months old and now its like a 7 day old clone i can clone from my clone?
you usually want to clone after 4-6 nodes have grown. i like to wait for a few days before i put them into flowering. plus when you flower most of the lower growth doesnt produce that much bud, so you use those cutting as clones
you can clone from a clone from a clone and so on. when i cut my next round of clones, i well be on my 3rd clone from a clone. im corious to compare potnecy and quality.
you can cut from 1 clone root it cut from that clone root it cut from the third generation clone ive done this like 20 times after a while they start to look really weird but keep gettin bigger and contrary to popular belief THEY DO NOT loose potency
I think the reason they are getting bigger is because you are getting better!!
thanks man i like to think thats what it is but after about the 10th time they star gettin super branchy and bushy i clone buds to it's a bit harder but it can be done clones from buds grow really branchy way branchier than a normal clone
its best to wait till a plant is about 4 to 5 nodes , 6 nodes is when you can deff take a clone off the top to make it start branching out
My feeling is you are half correct.
He is getting better. But when you take a clone, You are not truely taking a clone. A clone is totally different then taking a CUTTING. a clone is splitting some small little thingy and so on. Anyway when you do this it is like copying a copy. Which if you continue to do it, it degrades. Now with a cutting. You are taking a true cutting of that plant. Lets put it this way, If i could take a cutting of myself, there would now be two of me. Exactly the same, same attitude, same hates, same everything. But with a Clone they start new, but a copy.
Now with a cutting, even though you just cut it yesterday, it is still as mature as the first plant in the cycle. As in, if you have taken cuttings from a mother for 2 years, that cutting has the maturity of a two year old plant. Now when this mature plant is a clone, it needs to grow fast and quick, it kind of freaks a little. I still get results from what most people call stressing the plant,,,,,..... Oh NO!! Don't do that it will Hermie...
Just a thought. maybe I am wrong. Have been before, will happen again.
is it called cloning or taking a cutting when making a nother plant from a plant?
Hardly anyone actually takes clones. They call them clones, but they are not. They are cuttings. Two totally different things. You would not want to take a clone of a clone of a clone.
But you can take cuttings of cuttings and no big deal.
