The golden rules of growing

We’d be totally remiss to not point you to http://www.ilovegrowingmarijuana.com/guides/marijuana-growing-beginners/

Guessing you’ve already been there but in the event you haven’t there it is.

If you are considering purchasing seeds from this site, I highly recommend doing so. I’ve completed 3 successful cash purchases and couldn’t be happier. Having feminized seeds available cuts out the step of having to force cuttings to ID any males and remove them before they’re done vegging.

The vitality and health of a plant grown to maturity from seed vs a plant that is cloned is almost visually negligible. But the quality and potency of the flower a cloned plant can produce diminishes with each successive generation whereas a plant grown from seed is not going to do that from seed to seed.

I don’t have the link to the grow bible, or I can’t find it right now

Here’s a good explanation of forcing cuttings to ID males from the other Will

Couldn’t the same be said that the clone may evolve?

il have a read, thanks dudeee

I’ve read about 3 different bilbes, all great info. I just prefer to ask the community, get some one to one information, better than reading 10000 guides sometimes :slight_smile: anyway, I’m just vampiring the shit out of all knowledge online.

I beg to differ about the Clone and Seed thing that you had mentioned …if you can keep your plants happy and healthy no matter how many times you clone from them they will still produce quality medicine …I have strains that I’ve been cloning for four years now and they are still producing quality medicine like the plant that the seed first gave me… and actually over time the more I clone them , it seems that it’s easier to grow them because the plants start to adapt to what I give them as far as their environment without having to try and critique things just for said specific strain or seed… :wink:

:v: :sunglasses:

EVOLUTION! i said that :wink:
That was a bit of a sales pitch mr Willd haha
Having a cloning/veg room and a flower room is my plan, then seeds are never a problem and your constantly flowering :slight_smile:

Just that list is a really big part of the entire grow. You’re learning a lot of things fast that is going to make you a better grower. It is not that hard to grow good Cannabis BUT it is hard work getting there with a lot of studying and new things to learn. I think learning to have patience has made me a better grower. Jerry

It seems pretty simple really, keep everything as it should be, top and crop in veg til 50% of grow area is taken up in veg - then flower, and be patient. sorted

Yes, as is the case with most things we perceive, there are pros and cons to both.
I’ve done both and found that most of the clones were less tolerant of the wind & required more water than the seed grown gals. They also displayed nute deficiency symptoms common to indoor grow configs where the seed grown plants never did. It could have been the quality of the clones I received.

If I were an indoor grower, I would likely be much more inclined to go the cloning route due to time, space and consistency.
But I work from home and grow outdoors in an area where the NOAA wind rose shows an average wind speed of 10-20 knots throughout most of the growing season. Small craft advisories & gale warnings are a part of everyday life out here on our point. Stems need to be strong from the start. Anxious to see whether or not the flowers on the Big Bud get so heavy the stems require support as advertised.

As far as Golden Rules go, NEVER use hard water in your foliar spray bottle. My water ppm is 300, and boy did it dry and leave white spots everywhere.
