hey check out" attitude seed bank"they r the best, used them lots never a problem lots to choose from u wont b sorry cheers paulim pretty sure im gonna go with clones but if anyone that knows a site i can get seeds from that ships to the u.s. Let me know because i want to try some different strains of marijuana
There are a few ways to produce clones, and cannabis is (generally) an easy to clone plant. You can clone just about any plant by making two shallow cuts all the way around the stem a half inch or so apart, connecting the two cuts with a shallow vertical one, then peeling the "bark" off the stem. If your cuts are shallow enough, you will have removed the first layer without damaging the nutrient transport (etc.) layers underneath. Pack the wounded area with some kind of medium, dampen it, and wrap it with a lightproof and waterproof cover. In a week to ten days, you can check the wound - it will almost always be healed - and showing root growth, lol. At that point, you can simply cut your rooted clone off of her mother and plant it. But... that's usually overkill for cannabis.Thanks For the Info. Now to find out the best way to Clone.
I just did this with two Kali Mist and two Jack Herer cuttings. Seems like three of them had roots (passed the "tug test," lol) in eight or nine days. I gently tugged on #4 this morning and it appeared to have rooted, too. Nothing fancy - used the same 75%:25% mix of Fox Farm's Happy Frog soil and perlite that the "mothers" are growing in, four little plastic cups, and stuck them at the edge of the light's footprint. Placed a milk crate upside down over them as a cat-guard. They get occasional shading (cat sits on milk crate from time to time ). I watered the soil well with warm(ish) tap water straight out of the faucet prior to sticking the cuttings in it. I watered twice with a weak (1/3 recommended strength) with Olivia's Cloning Solution - which contains a natural rooting agent - but only because I remembered that I had it. No fancy machines, no cutting of leaves, no heat mat, no misting, and no humidity dome. In short, I cut small flexible branches, trimmed the ends, stuck them in well-drained soil, and let them get on with it. It aint rocket science, lol. Aids are for special circumstances - not for routine use. In other words... Is it 55Â°F? Use a heat mat device of some sort. Is the humidity 18%? Use a humidity dome (but don't turn the cuttings' environment into a sodden swamp in the process unless what you're really trying to grow is mold, lol). Don't blast them with enough light to grow a tree. Just common sense stuff. If that doesn't work, take a few cuttings and find an 80-year old woman to root them. She'll stick them into a glass of water and put it on her kitchen window sill until they grow roots :rolleyes3 .I have taken cuttings, placed them in a light (non-"enriched") soil with perlite mixed in, placed them where they received gentle light for much of the day, and basically just made sure to not allow the soil to dry out too much. Those generally rooted fine, too. Perhaps they took a little longer - but, when they did root, they did so in the container/medium that they would be growing in for at least a little while, so I felt this to be worth it for removing the (possibility of) stress of potting the rooted clone up.
