    Can you clone in the flowering stage?

    Just wondering if you can clone while in the flowering stage. I don't have a separate room to nurse a new clone that's been taken from the veg stage so I need to use the same space after my plant is done drying so clonning from the flowering stage would work perfectly. Will this work?

    After the clone roots....will it behave the same way a non flowering clone would root?

    Will it grow as fast?

    I have tried this once and the plant did not have good results.

    The plant will take forever to root and grow new shoots. And when It does it will be some ugly first few leaves. The plant will not yield well by itself BUT you take clones from that plant after t Veg's a while and THOSE plants are grown as normal and they will be great yields.
    I'll try anything once, twice if I like it and make it a habit if it's fun.

    Re: Can you clone in the flowering stage?

    Once I got two clones for free from the dispensery. I got them for free because the person who brought them in cloned them while they were flowering. I put them under my T5 with my other clones under 24-0 light and the plant did not revert back to vegging. It just sat there not growing for weeks. Finally I took them outside and put them in my greenhouse for a week. That reverted them back to veg and I vegged them for a month before reflowering them. I killed 1 becasuse it was so ugly and such a runt but 1 is still alive and budding tiny little buds. I kept it just to see what the end result would be. It is flowering and producing resin bud the buds look like mutants. The plant is growing very strange because a situation like this would almost never happen normally in nature. I should have just put the little plant under 12-12 from the beginning but I had no idea. Very little bud grew on it. A lot of 1 leafs whatever those are called and all around revegging is a waste of time imho unless you do it outdoors. Otherwise you're just wasting electricity. If you take a clone of a flowering plant don't waste your time trying to reveg it to get it bigger. Just put it under 12-12 from the beginning even if the clone is only 4 or 5 inches tall. You will get more bud that way than if you try to revert it back to vegging and then reflowering it.

    ya you can clone on flower stage no problem an dont leave it on 24 hours of light do 18/6 the plants need the dark to grow another key thing to rooting clones is making sure your res temp is at least 82 deg

    I took two clones off an outdoor plant just before harvesting her. They took about a week to root for me, in plain rainwater using root plugs.

    They are now on 18/6 light schedule vegging, and the leaves are going to town. They will look very very wierd at first, but will start looking normal as it grows out. They will be slow at first, there are lots of changes going in that plants system, so be patient. I have done this before and had a very healthy harvest.

    Here's what they looked like at first after about a week in the solo cups, the two on the right:



    Here's what they look like now, couple of weeks later:

    Re: Can you clone in the flowering stage?

    Generally they just get increasingly harder to clone as flowering progresses. Clones taken in the first few weeks of flowering are pretty reliable. As it gets further along into flowering I just aim to reveg the plant, which I've generally found to be pretty easy and painless to do.
