  • Cloning question: when to clone & time to harvest

    I am new to this and after buying expensive seed want to clone. First: at what stage of development should the cuttings be taken from the mother plant? Second: if you have an auto-flowering plant that say takes 65 days to flower, does the 65 days start over with a new clone or is the time shortened? Thanks PBM

    HI PBM. Welcome to the forum.
    You can start to clone as soon as your plant is well established. A plant needs to be strong and healthy to produce good clones. You should consider topping when you have about 5 or 6 nodes to start her bushing out. Once she has recovered from this there should be some good sites to start cloning. You will need to let her recover each time, but you will be able to take more and more from her each time as she gets bigger and stronger and bushier.
    As for the auto, forget it, The clock is already ticking and the time has started, the clone will take but you will only have a few weeks of flowering time. Clone regular photoperiod plants only.
    Hope this helps.

          Hey Ratt

          Those are great looking clones. Looks like you were able to root 4 of 7. That's really not bad at all.

          I failed to root in water dozens before realizing I was making some basic mistakes.

          I've heard people take that netting off the peet pellets before transplanting. Not sure if they restrict root expansion that much.

          Nice work!

            Actually all 7 rooted, beginners luck I guess. The net is supposed to deteriorate over time. They are in soil now. Wish I could find someone nearby to trade with so I can try a different strain.
