    How are you taking cuttings? How are you rooting them, exactly?
    No it isn't. A cutting is an exact genetic copy including the age and sex of the parent.
    Cloning by definition.

    I used to use the small rock wool cubes instead of peat pots. I also used to use a plastic dome, then I discovered a product called Wilt Pruf, it will keep the moisture in while rooting is taking place. It comes ready to use, or in concentrate form. You just spray it on the leaves after you've placed the cutting in whatever medium you are using.



    Another little trick is, after you've taken the cutting with scissors, cut the stem with a very sharp razor blade, at a 45 degree angle. Then take the blade, and very lightly scrape one side of the stem starting about a half inch from the bottom. You only want to remove the outer hard portion of the stem. This seems to promote faster rooting. Single sided utility razor blades or regular utility knife blades work well. You always want to disinfect the blade by wiping it with 91% isopropyl alcohol. This also removes the oily residue that coats utility knife blades.

    Weekend update; finishing a pre roll from yesterday GG#4.
    At 21.3% thc, nothing to trifle with. These prerolls are ideal with a filter, one gram of high test and a satisfying spliff shape including easy lighting cone end.

    When I get down to business a little later I will be cracking open a satchel of Tangcicle at a hearty 22.4% THC.
    All brought to me by the capitalist tools at the Commonwealth of Massachusetts GovCo offices who wisely just want their 20%.
    What a great country!

    Sounds promising.

    Actual scientific cloning uses genetic material on a cellular level, not biomass plant matter. But whatever, if you like referring to it as cloning, I have no problem with that. I call it taking cuttings.

    It works like a champ every time. And, eliminates the mold problem sometimes encountered when using plastic domes.

I use Mycogrow (mycelium) on just about everything from the potted flowers on the deck to veggies in raised beds. Would that work?

    As you can tell, I'm a rank newbie.
    Well first don’t over think pinching the tips. When it starts bushing out stop.

    You fertilizer is fine. Just stop using it when the buds start to ripen or your stash will taste like fertilizer.

    It’s called weed for a reason. It’s not hard to grow. Except maybe for Grind.

    Now if you’re interested in growing plants with high volumes of seedless buds than cloning is the approach you want to take.

    But if it’s your 6 plants for legal home consumption then just stick with your bushy females. Done right you’ll get more than you can use in a year. Truth be known I actually prefer bushy females.

    absolutey, but you’re yield will significantly lower than using buds.

    Thank you for the info, plus the TMI. lol

    So at what stage do you harvest the buds? Before they open?

    I have and it’s way to much trouble for just producing your own stash.

    Don’t over think it. The key is getting quality seeds. Cloning is really an industrial method for producing high volumes of bud but it’s a hassle if you’re just growing for yourself. Maybe consider cloning if you have very limited access to good seeds.

    My best advice is to just keep it simple.

    First get good seed. That’s half the battle. Start them, prune the during the growth phase. For potting soil use 1:1:1 blend of topsoil, vermiculite and sand.

    When your plants are mature enough to transplant outdoors plant them in good soil, with good light, fertilize regularly during the vegetative phase, water regularly if needed. Stop using fertilizer when buds have formed and start to mature. Let mature then harvest.

    You’ll still want to do standard garden practices of killing weeds and pest prevention.

    Other then that don’t fuss to much with them. They’ll do fine.

    Observe the stamens in the buds. They will be white when they start to mature. As they mature they will change color at the tips. Usually a reddish/rust color. When the stamens completely change color it’s harvest time.
