Clones aren’t just something you find running around in Droid costumes in Star Wars. Clones are a vital part of agriculture today. Plant cutting or striking is referred to as cloning. This method is used for propagating plants by placing the detached stem in a suitable medium allowing it to take root.
Cannabis clones are increasingly popular for many reasons. People who are looking to purchase a cannabis clone love that they know they’re getting a female plant. This is because having a female eliminates the need to go through the process of germination and raising it from seed.
Cloning yourself is as simple as cutting a stem from a plant and removing the lower leaves and placing the stem into your chosen growing medium. If you attempt to clone using water, all you must do is drop your cutting in and wait for the new roots to start. When cloning in soil, you want to ensure that the soil is not overly packed with nutrients.
One must be careful not to overwater or underwater your clones during this time. One of the most common methods used today for cloning cannabis is Rockwool cubes or other non-soil equivalents as they offer excellent moisture retention and the necessary airflow to develop roots.
Patience & Care
When your clone starts to show signs of new vegetative growth you have successfully starting the cloning process. Now it’s time to transfer your clone into a larger growing area, but you must be very careful during this process because you can shock your clone when transplanting. Go slow and don’t rush the process. It’s vital that you don’t overexert your clones during transplanting.
Learning how to clone cannabis plants from your garden is hugely beneficial because they can save you money and time while also assuring a consistently high-quality crop.
