Title: Pros and Cons of Starting with a Clone instead of a Seed


1
Pros and Cons of Starting with a Clone instead of
a Seed
2
Introduction
  • When growing CBD, the first thing you need to
    decide is whether to start from clone or seed.
    CBD Hemp Clones are a small cutting from a mother
    plant that has developed its own root system.
    This will undoubtedly be the toughest decision
    you are going to make, as it will determine the
    strategy you incorporate in your garden.

3
Pros of Starting with a Clone
  • If you start with a clone, you are assured
    that the gender of your plant is female. There
    are chances that the plant may become a
    hermaphrodite when stressed, but at least you
    know there are no male plants. Male plants fail
    to provide the euphoric and wellness benefits
    that females can.

Some more Benefits of Clones
  • Starting with a clone speeds up the
    cultivation process. CBD seeds take time to
    sprout and grow into a plant. A clone is already
    a few weeks ahead of the process, as it is a
    plant. Also, growth from a clone is much easier
    than growth from a seed. The clones are a great
    help to newbie cannabis growers.

5
Drawbacks of Clones
  • The worst thing about using a clone is that
    they lack a taproot and possess a fibrous root
    system. The reputable growers have observed
    through a course of years that a taproot makes
    the plant stronger. And there are also chances
    that some cannabis clones might carry pests or
    diseases.

6
Some more Cons
  • With the use of clones, professional hemp
    cultivators are restricted to the varieties
    available only in their area. The dispensaries
    and stores are gradually increasing the
    varieties, but they still cannot be compared to
    the seed banks.
