They say from seed that it typically takes 8-12 weeks total process. How long does it typically take if you start from a clone??
You can flower a clone as soon as it start to root after its cloned , which can create a sea of green type of grow with small plants producing 2-3 cola buds , being feminized coming from a mother (female ) plant , which can cut time from terming the seed , planting , waiting for it to sprout , than transplanting . But with clones , you cut , let it root and flower it ?
A rooted clone in hydro can be as little as 3 weeks keep in mind if you cut clones can take almost 2 weeks to get it fully rooted. Mainly I would suggest trying and comparing since it greatly depends on size of cutting/clone and how you plan to grow train it.
