Cloning your marijuana plants is not hard, be patient

It isn’t hard at all, but it is wise to take your time, have a very steady hand when you start the process, (don’t be high) and know a few very basic things before you start. Start small! Don’t raise a crop of sixty or seventy ganja babies with the intent to clone them all, especially not if you are new to this process, or if it’s the first time you have done it unaided. Being a sucker for punishment or an over-confident cowboy breeder is not the path you want to go down, both scenarios will cause you endless grief. So, start small!

Keep track of your parent plants and their clone offspring; you will need a labeling system. THAT IS IMPERATIVE. Once the light cycle gets shifted, both the parent plant and the clones will start showing their genders. Unless you have a breeding program in place, get rid of the males.
