Clones for Sale: 5 Tips on Choosing Best Plants

Using marijuana clones is one of the easiest ways to grow a reliably high-quality marijuana. They produce crops faster than plants grown from seeds, and the quality of buds is pretty similar to the quality of the mother plant's yield. To clone a mature female plant from your own garden is probably the best choice you can make. But if you do not have a mother plant that is suitable for cloning, you will have to look for marijuana clones for sale. The 5 following tips will help you make the right choice.

Growing Weed Indoors: 10 Most Common Mistakes
Growing weed indoors may seem one of the easiest things you have ever done, but new growers usually face many problems over the course of growing their first cannabis plants. Here is a list of the most common mistakes almost all beginners make.

Do not buy clones online

Although buying marijuana clones at an online shop may seem to be easier, faster, and maybe even cheaper, it will not be the wisest decision. First of all, you cannot examine the clones you want to buy, so you cannot be 100% sure that you bought a healthy, high-quality plant. And secondly, in contrast to cannabis seeds, clones usually do not handle shipping very well.

Choose a trusted dispensary or grower

Whether you are going to buy marijuana clones from a local grower or at a marijuana dispensary, make sure you are dealing with a trusted person or company. Ask the seller to show you the mother plant or, at least, its picture. You can also ask whether the mother plant was grown from seed or it is a mature clone itself. Generally, the plants that were raised from seeds produce stronger, more potent clones than the plants grown from clones.

Check the leaves

The leaves can tell you a lot about the state of the whole plant. A healthy, strong marijuana plant has straight leaves without any curled or twisted parts. The leaves should also have an intense green color, without any spots, and any pale, yellow, or brown parts.

Take a closer look at the underside of the clone leaves—it is one of the favorite places for the weed pests and bugs to hide. Use a magnifying glass if you need.

Check the stalk

When you are done with the leaves, turn your attention to the plant's stalk. It has to be light brown or green, without any white or gray spots on it. Plants with a purple or a dark brown stalk are definitely not something you want to have in your garden. And remember to take a closer look at the base of the weed stalk as well—that is where you can find the signs of the presence of powdery mildew.

Check the roots and/or soil

Finally, check the soil and the roots of the clone you want to buy. If you can see the roots, examine their color and general condition: they should be white, without any significant damage ordeformations.

If you are going to buy a plant in a cup, take a closer look at the soil and the base of the cup, because this is where some bugs like thrips are usually hiding.
