    I used this technique accidentally when I took flowered clones from my first grow. It was definitely a bushy success. Not sure it's going to be a regular method for me indoors but outdoors it may be a good way to go, stealth wise. A monster cropped Ducksfoot would be completely undetectable.

    You have some great points,
    One question, Are you worried about your clones becoming genetically weaker with each successive cloning. Many studies that I have read have indicated that desirable traits including yield, disease resistance, ect, can/ maybe effected as the plants lineage moves further from the mother plant. Have you experienced this ?
    Thanks

    In botany we refer to this as the SET of the crop
    S = Space and how it is used
    E = Energy - photon loss ect
    T = Time and how to improve on crop rotation

    I have almost got it right after 30 years, another 30 and I will be there....

    Thanks for your info - very interesting...

    I have some clones I took from a few plants ranging from 3-5 weeks into flowering. They're currently in peat pellets rooting. Interested in seeing how they turn out. My revegged chocolope and og kush plants are looking much better than my amnesia haze so I put it into bloom. The other two will get cloned one more time before they get flowered out again. The first set of clones were sold.

    If u bought ur clone at a store your a weed babysitter. Buying clones is like having red headed step children...u love them but never as much as the ones u got to hold as a baby

    this clone was taken at 3 weeks 12/12 from the seed mother

    5.jpg 6.jpg 7.jpg
    i vegged it for 6 weeks flowered for 8 weeks, it yielded 28 oz
    i think it helps the plant shoot out more branches when growing them from a semi rejuvenated stage ( what you call monster cropping)
    but its also the genetics that made this plant big

    peace

    Its called being progressive> You sound like my grand pops saying "kids nowadays will never know what it means to drive a car because they did not learn on a stick shift." why use a dial phone when u have an iPhone? Why learn DOS when u have Windows 10?

    Starting with clones means they are smarter than the fool who wasted time with seeds

    It sounds about right. I FIM THE Main top at 3 nodes, get a few strong 2 -4 branches under the Main, as soon as the 2-4 branches are long enough( 2-3 inches) I start training them to grow horizontal. Once I have 2 nodes from last FIM point on the Main I FIM it again, I also FIM all side branches that have have 2 or 3 nodes and keep training them all horizontal. I train the resulting water spouts horizontal as well, I do lots of careful leaf trimming as I go along. Eg, i shine a flashlight from the top Maine and work in quadrants cutting any leaf I cannot move to the side that is covering a budding potential water sprout. the end result is an organized series of Menorahs. I am a plant sadist. I bend, twist, and chop my bitches with no fear of hurting or breaking them.

    Alot of pictures are of clones well established. Here's my first attempt at monster cropping. These clones were taken from my amnesia haze plant at 4 weeks in. They were transplanted today. They both have small roots from sitting in aloe water for a week. IMAG2696_1.jpg

    The other clone is from my chocolope mother plant.
