When taking clones of a vegging plant, do you recommend taking all the cuttings at once, or taking only 1 or two at a time

A customer has a question and I hope we can get some opinions on it, thanks

when taking clones of a vegging plant, do you recommend taking all the cuttings at once, or taking only 1 or two at a time. Wondering what you have experienced as far at stunting plant growth, if one way is better than the other.

I believe its always smarter to not take more then your plant can handle. Depending on her size makes a world of difference. Some can take losing 6-8 branches. Some cant. But if you take a couple or a handful, always give her time to recover.

I might suggest that you wait until the mother plant is just into flower before taking cuttings. Technically that would be a “monster cropped clone” and happens to be extremely vigorous: often more robust than the mother plant. If you do that you can take as many cuttings as you want as the plant is (hopefully) bigger than a young vegging plant.

Remember too that the cuttings are the same age as the mother so as soon as they are rooted you could flower em off.

Never cut away more then one 3rd of any tree , plant , shrub or any plant of any kind or you will kill it…
So you can take as many clones as you want , as long as it’s not more then one 3rd of all of the plant…
