What is a clone and what are the advantages of growing cannabis with clones?
Basically a clone is a little piece of plant that has been cut off from a parent plant and then given the opportunity to root on its own. You will want to take clones off a cannabis plant when it's in the vegetative stage, and you will tend to get better results if you use clones from a well-established plant (at least two months old). If you grow a plant in the vegetative stage for about 2-3 months, you will be able to get dozens of clones off it.
Each cannabis clone is a genetic copy of it's parent, so if the parent is a female, then you are guaranteed that all the clones taken from that cannabis plant will be female. This can be a great way of propogating a cannabis strain without having to ever worry about male plants or seeds. Each clone is also completely mature, and can be changed to start flowering as soon as you'd like.
