First things first: it is up to you if you prefer to grow clones or marijuana seed. You will probably get from a friend or a dispensary, whereas seeds you’re probably going to get online. In this article, we’ll be discussing the difference between clones and seeds so that you can see which one you like better.
This will be an identical copy to the mother plant, guaranteed to be female, and they are also going to have an established root system. Having clones and even the mother plant around is nice because it will give you the ability to hold on to genetics for long periods. You can keep the mother plant around, and whenever you want to smoke that flower again, you take a clone, veg it out, flower it, and then you will have your flower again. It is effortless and convenient to grow.
Each seed is going to contain traits of both the mother and the father plant. It would be a combination of both male and female seeds unless you decide to buy just the female seeds, which are a little bit more expensive than the usual but at least you can guarantee yourself better genetics of the yield. The benefit of growing these seeds is that you will get a nice fresh batch of genetics or phenotypes that people have never seen before.
That said, seeds will result in genuine and authentic cannabis.” If you go through a period where you can’t grow any cannabis, you can store those seeds for long periods and grow them later.
If you decided to plant a clone, make sure you isolate the clone and put it in a different container away from all the other plants. Because when you take a clone from another dispensary or garden, it might be infested with pests and all the diseases. You might want to observe it for a few weeks and make sure it doesn’t have any issues before bringing it into your main garden.
Germinating Your Seeds
You are looking to germinate your cannabis seeds and get some beautiful roots. The first thing you need to do is prepare a sandwich bag and a wet paper towel. Put the seeds inside the damp paper towel and put them inside the sandwich bag. Once the seed is set inside the bag, put it in a dark and slightly warm area and leave it for three days. By the time you check it, it should have some big beautiful roots, and your seeds will be ready to go into the soil.
