Hello all. I’m new to this forum. I have a greenhouse and threw the plants out to early and they started flowering. I want to take clones but, I don’t want to monster crop. I want them to grow normally. Should I take a flowering clone, reveg the clone, and take a clones from the reveged monster crop clone? Will this give me a normal plant? Any help is much appreciated. Thank you
Why rooted a flowering clone and take a clone from it to have a normal plant when you can have a monster?
The hard thing is root a flowering clone. Anyway when your monster crop plants is in full veg stage you can take many cuttings as you want and make normal clones
Your theory would work yes, but a monster cropped clone will grow just like any other clone…except with more growth.
Welcome! You’ve come to the right place for sure. Expert growers here.
You generally want to clone before flowering. Cloning a flowering plant means that clone is going back to veg stage, increasing the chance for shock and hermies. That said, I’ve never tried so just going by what I’ve read in the past.
I take clones from flowering plants all the time… i never have any problems…
I know some people think it could cause your plant to hermi out , but I call bs… if the plant has hermi traits then it’s a possibility… but in all my years at doing this I’ve never had a clone from a flowering plant turn hermi on me just because the plant was in flower when i took the Clone …
@peachfuzz And I’d go by your experience before something I just read so as far as I’m concerned it must be ok
Thank you all. Yes the monster cropped clone will grow more vigorously once rooted well but it will yield less flowers from all the research ive done. Thanks again
Not sure where you seen that or read that… absolutely not true… monster cropped clones will produce way more Bud sites , clone material and just be a bigger plant in general…
I would insist that you look into this further because I am sorry to say that the info you have gotten so far is highly incorrect…
I agree with @peachfuzz 100%
I have taken clones from flowering mothers for 6 generations of white widow with no problems
So the answer is yes to his question
I recently clipped 8 clones from my 8 plants. They are already in flower stage. I pulled off the top buds but left the small larfy buds cause they were intertwined with new leaves I was worried about pinching off…
you did it right and thank you for your input,
I haven’t seen you before so Welcome to ILGM
wE HAVE SOME AWESOME THINGS GOING ON IN THE LOUNGE THEN CHOOSE THE GREEN ROOM.
Sorry about the cap’s lol
I’m not sure if they are gonna make it. The clones that is… the lower leaves are turning yellow now. No new growth and it’s been 5 days.
Do you have them in soil by any chance
“Jiffy 7” peat pots at the moment…
Thank you so much for your help. I just have one question I can’t find answers on. If my plants are starting to show only a little of normal growth from reveg again, should they be ready to flip? I need to flower in less than one week but im a bit nervous. hopefully you can see the picture. Thanks again for your help and everyone else’s.
It appears that you have a lot more going on with your plants than just the reveg cycle and you would want them to actually revert all the way back to vegging before you flip to 12/12 , so I’m not sure that you can make it with that tight of a schedule because it looks like your plants need to go back to veg a little bit more than they have so far … but other than that your plants actually look like they’re having other issues… if I were you I’d fill out a support ticket to best give us a better chance at helping you with your issues…
I have to flower them anyway otherwise I wont be able to flower my others outdoors before the first frost. If by other peoblems you meant the leaf serations curling, these are alien rift by ocean grown and thats actually a trait they have. I don’t see anyone else flowering as early in reveg as I am, so atleast i’ll be a tester for others. Thanks again for your help.
Lower leaves turning yellow usually means you have roots started if rest of plant is healthy looking.
