The benefits of out cloning cannabis

Outdoor cloning provides a cost-effective way to expand your garden while maintaining the genetic integrity of your plants.

However, external cloning comes with its own challenges. Weather conditions such as temperature fluctuations, humidity and insects can cause significant setbacks. Time is needed to ensure that clones root well before being exposed to harsh weather conditions, and they may be more susceptible to pests and diseases compared to indoor clones.

Key success factors of outdoor cannabis  cloning

To increase your chances of success, consider the following key factors.

Choosing the Right Time: Timing: Do everything when it comes to external cloning. Aim for stable temperatures and more daylight hours.

Selecting healthy mother plants: Start with plants that are disease-free and robust in vegetative growth for best cloning results.

Preparation of cloning medium: Use a well-drained, non-sterile medium such as rockwool or perlite to encourage root growth.

Grafting: Use appropriate cutting techniques including sterile instruments and 45-degree angle cutting, taking into account your graft size and node placement.

Create favorable conditions: Provide limited moisture, indirect sunlight and consistent temperature for optimal growth.

Replacement and aftercare: Before moving, stabilize the clones, choose a suitable location, and provide ongoing care to ensure survival.

Tips for success

  • Consider using a greenhouse or cold frame for added protection from the elements.
  • Stay alert and monitor weather forecasts, and make care adjustments as needed to protect your clones.
