Marijuana seeds clones

This means cloned cannabis plants will probably not develop optimal root systems. And that’s a shame, considering that root volume equals yield volume. In contrast to seeds, clones need a shorter vegetation period. During that time they’ll also grow faster than plants from seeds, because the clone is not an infant, but has the same age as its mother. Again, this may seem advantageous at first, but such unnatural growth comes with drawbacks, too.

Anyone interested in growing their own cannabis has two options: growing from seeds or using clones. Although some people claim clones are the better choice, we prefer to compare the pros and cons of cannabis clones and the prime seeds from the AG strains catalogue. That way, anyone can decide for themselves whether to search for clones or grow cannabis from the best seeds we can offer.

As noted, clones are simply rootless branches cut off a mother plant. Obviously, the first thing they need to develop after you plant them is a root system. And that takes energy; a whole lot of it, in fact. Meanwhile, the existing leaves of the clones demand energy to grow and continue THEIR work: photosynthesis.

Root And Branch Development In Cannabis Clones vs. Seeds

By taking clones you know your crop will consistently have the exact same grow characteristics, flavour profile, and overall phenotype as its mother. Unfortunately, clones also carry any flaws their mother’s DNA may contain. Clones can carry hidden genetic defects that may only express themselves months later while flowering. They can also carry diseases and vulnerabilities to pests and fungi inherited from the mother plant.

Some growers with an experimental mindset like to develop new strains of their own. If they succeed, they can proceed in two ways: clone the new plant, or pollinate it to grow new seeds naturally? They’ll need to cross two existing strains first, though, and to do that they need cannabis seeds, not clones. Crossbreeding two clones with the same genotype is pointless. Moreover, clones are usually female plants, and attempting to two females is obviously problematic… Anyone interested in creating new variants using natural reproduction (between plants, that is!) is going to need male and female specimens. Our regular seeds are the best choice for doing so. These seeds, such as Critical Mass Regular for instance, become male plants in 50% of all cases; in contrast to feminized seeds that yield nearly 100% female plants.

Cannabis Clones And Seeds

Clones will not grow as sturdy as cannabis plants from seeds, though. After germination, cannabis seeds develop a fat taproot, which travels as far down into the soil as it can. The taproot serves like an anchor, increasing the stability of the plant. This vertical root will go on to develop lateral roots horizontally, ensuring a deep-rooted cannabis plant. And as we stated before, root volume equals yield volume. So a healthy and substantial seed-grown root system is all set to produce a healthy and substantial yield.

Using clones means having an exact copy of a mother plant’s genotype to work with. That can be a big plus if you know exactly which phenotype you want to grow. If you manage to raise a clone the right way, you could theoretically produce more clones for your next grows. We will admit this is a benefit for some growers, but the extra effort involved convinces the majority of growers to work with seeds in the natural way.

The largest selection of seedlings that Vienna and its surroundings have to offer! Discover a wide and diverse range of cannabis strains growing for you at PlantCity.


Why? Because we love our plants.

Our seedlings grow and thrive in sophisticated systems. The ideally equipped cultivation rooms are physically separated from their surroundings so that the seedlings grow under the best protected conditions. CMH lamps and Sanlight LEDs give them the energy they need to develop a strong root system and become robust and resilient. All plants in PlantCity are placed on grow tables that are regularly watered. This type of irrigation ensures ideal humidity in the root environment, which is extremely important for plants in the start-up phase.

V�sendorf/Brunn am Gebirge: PlantCity. Hemp seedlings in best quality.

You can make it easy for yourself and come and visit our store in person. There is a large quantity and diverse selection of vigorous, young seedlings in stock, that you can just choose, buy and take with you.

The LED lights under which we grow the hemp seedlings at CityGrow are from the flood tables to guarantee optimal irrigation. This ensures that when you pick them up, the seedlings have taken root vigorously and are ready for you to place them in the growing medium.

In our grow shop branch in Vienna’s city centre you can choose your favourite strain from all the cannabis seeds available at CityGrow. Upon request, these are then planted for you and grown under ideal conditions for three weeks. After these three weeks the young plants are ready for you to pick them up. The growing medium we use are Eazy Blocks, which are compatible with all growing substrates, even hydroponic systems. This means that you can later plant the plants in any desired substrate and integrate them into any cultivation system.

Our locations for hemp plants at a glance:

The large warehouse, which hosts our largest plant nursery, is located in the industrial area in Brunn am Gebirge/V�sendorf. Countless cannabis seedlings grow here and are cared for by our experienced growers with the utmost attention and care. For our customers there are more than 20 different varieties waiting at PlantCity. Since we place particular emphasis on the most modern, authentic genetics, the assortment is variable and always adapted to the current demand.

But not only beginners, also professionals can benefit from our diverse range of cannabis plants! If you save yourself the tedious cultivation of seeds or cuttings, you will automatically save a lot of time and equipment. So instead of worrying about a newborn cannabis plant during the first complex weeks of its life, leave the work to us! This way you can easily integrate the young plants into your grow environment and start with your own plant cultivation immediately. Depending on your personal preference, we offer either clones or seedlings to decorate your own four walls with healthy, green young plants.

Here are the reasons why some growers prefer cannabis clones.

The Benefits to Starting with a Clone Instead of a Seed

After about 6 weeks of growth, the plant will usually show signs of “pre-flowers” (female) or seeds (male). This will alert you to the gender of the plant.

Why Growing Cannabis from Seed Is a Good Option

Drawback #1: Clones lack a taproot. Instead they grow secondary roots also known as a fibrous root system.
