Welp, it’s 4/20 week this week and wouldn’t you know it? Friday’s the big day- isn’t that cool?
This week we’ll be going over some 4/20 themed topics to get you excited for the big day, so we’ll kick things off by asking all you growers this:
What benefits to do you see when growing from seeds over clones, and vice versa?
We’ve been in plenty of grow rooms, and the growing trend now is to grow using clones. You don’t have to worry about a seed popping or not, because your job at that point is to continue growing a plant to harvest. As long as you can maintain the growth of a clone without shocking it, you’ve got about 1-2 weeks on seeds.
Cloning can replicate genetics for generations, but changing or upgrading those genetics happen at the cellular level, and that’s where seeds come in handy.
Seeds are the basis of pretty much all flowering plant life, so if you want to make new strains or improve on ones you already have, you’ll need to do some breeding. You take pollen and apply it to female flowers, and soon you’ll have seeds. You can plant those seeds, continue to breed until you get the genetics you want, then clone that plant and harvest even more seeds!
There are benefits and drawbacks to both, so which do you like to start from and which technique gives you the best results? Let us know in the comments! (Photo: Rosin Tech)
