Using a regular seed to produce clones is a great way to get your plants started. But it is important to understand that not all seeds are created equal. Some are feminized, which means they produce female plants, and others are regular, which means they produce male plants. You can get a lot of information from the Internet about the differences between the two, but it is important to know which seeds you are using to produce your clones.
Feminized vs regular seeds
In general, feminized seeds have an easier time producing larger, more potent plants. They also offer better control over the final harvest.
Feminized seeds are also better suited for outdoor cultivation. They don’t have the same demands for light that regular plants do. However, they do need a special lighting schedule.
Many feminized seeds require up to four weeks of vegetative growth before they bloom. This is ideal for growers who want to get more seeds from their plants. However, some growers find that they get better results with shorter veg periods.
Regular seeds are also good for breeding. However, they can be more susceptible to stress. This can include too much water, bad transplants, and pathogens.
Creating clones with regular seeds
Creating clones from regular seeds is a great way to improve the quality of marijuana plants. These genetic copies can be used to revive a strain that is out of date, to mimic the taste or smell of another strain, or to replicate the effect of the parent plant.
When it comes to creating clones from regular seeds, there are several advantages and disadvantages. A lot of experimentation is required to find the best growing method.
Clones are exact duplicates of the parent plant’s genetics. This means that they will be a close match. However, clones may introduce disease and pests. They may also lack variety. This is especially true if you are trying to clone a strain that you have not grown before.
Growing from clones can be time-consuming and boring. It is important to raise the clones correctly to ensure a good harvest. You should have a humidity dome, starter cubes, and a good watering schedule.
