What is a Cannabis Clone?
A cannabis clone is a small starter plant that uses the genetics of a plant that has proven results. Oftentimes when growing cannabis there is a lot of uncertainty as to what the yield of a plant will be, and a clone eliminates that uncertainty by only using productive phenotypes. If you are new to growing cannabis and want an easy introduction, a clone is the way to go.
What is the Difference Between Cannabis Clones and Seeds?
The main difference between a seed and a clone is the way the plant is produced. A seed is made when a male plant and a female plant pollinate and create a seed. Then the seed is planted and a plant is produced that is a hybrid of the two parent plants. A clone is created from one parent, usually a female, through asexual reproduction, meaning they are exact genetic reproductions of the plant that it came from.
What are the Benefits of Using a Clone?
The main benefit of using a clone as opposed to using seeds is the stability it offers. When breeding two plants, the outcome is a bit random. You do not know how potent the plant will be, and whether it will produce flower that are to your liking. With a clone, you already know that the plant will produce an abundance of potent flower. Also, it provides a garden with a sense of sustainability. Once the plant grows, you can then clone it, creating a whole new plant with the same known results.
