Beginner growers might wonder, which is better, growing from seeds or clones? They both have advantages and disadvantages. Ultimately, whichever option you choose, you want to look for good genetics and, if you’re a beginner, an easier-to-grow strain.
What is a clone? A clone is a cutting from a mature cannabis plant that can be replanted to produce another plant. A clone has the exact genetics of the “mother” plant from which it was cut. If the “mom” plant was strong and healthy, then the clone will have that genetics as well, but if the “mom” had issues, then the clone might suffer as well.
Clones should be treated with plenty of TLC. During the first replanting, it will be sensitive and there may be a period of shock for the clone. He will need specific amounts of nutrients and light to heal him during this phase. Good clones, especially healthy ones with good genetics, can be hard to find. Do your research and read the reviews, or find a friend who can recommend a solid place to get your clones.
Obtaining a clone can be beneficial for a new grower if the place where you obtained your clone can show you the “mother” plant or give you details on the genetics. A clone is also further along in development than a seed by about a month.

You can also check local stores that specialize in clones. clonestars.com, for example, is a Southern California co-op, providing medical-grade cannabis clones, teens, and ready-to-flower medical marijuana plants with delivery available.
Choose the right one Cannabis seeds growing depends on many things, not just the type of strain you prefer. Some cannabis seeds are designed to be grown indoors and some outdoors. Hempland prefers indoor cultivation, as we can better control closed environments and can produce more throughout the year. When choosing what to grow, we look for the best seedbanks or clones because our goal is to develop and improve a strain’s genetics over time.
Some cannabis strains are more difficult to grow than others, however, some were designed to be easy to grow, resistant to pests, and able to handle more stress. The less experienced the grower, the more important it is to choose an easy-to-grow strain.
