    Do you use any fert? What type of soil do you have it in? Currently I have 2 I am hoping turn out to be female so I can mother them. I am using happy frog organic with nova flora grow .6 ml for growth. They are about 3 weeks old and just went under a 400 watt MH and are starting to take off. Do you control the height by topping and how long in between? That's how you keep them small right? I've never cloned and this is my first try.

    When she's got 9-10 nodes and they're alternating in nature, go for it. I take 4 a month from mine.

    As soon as your nodes start to ALTERNATE, that means that your plant is mature enough to clone directly to flowering (after rooting of course)

    However, you can take clones at any point after 3 nodes......but it may take a little more time for them to mature enough to flower.
