Yes! Our West Hollywood dispensary has an interactive clone room, where visitors can view and interact with plants in various stages of growth.
We sell teenagers, heartlets, seedlings, and feminized seeds from various nurseries. We also sell supplies for cultivation, such as the Dark Heart Easy Pot, nutrients, pots, and soil, which vary based on availability. A clone is a cutting, such as a branch, that is cut off of a living marijuana plant, which will then grow into a plant itself. A clone has the same genetic makeup as the plant it was taken from, which is called the mother plant. A typical clone is about 6 inches in length and after cutting it off the mother plant, the clone is put into a medium such as a root cube and given a hormone to encourage root growth. After roots develop, it is then transplanted into a pot or the ground, and it will grow like any weed plant.
If you don’t want to mess with seeds, clones can be a great option for starting a marijuana plant. Growing weed from a clone will save you time—even though they need time to root out, you don’t have to germinate seeds, which will shave off a month or so of the growing process. Clones will also save space in your garden—with seeds, you have to grow many and sex them out to identify and get rid of the males. Also, usually some seeds don’t germinate. You’ll need extra space for all those seeds, and they might not even turn into full plants. If you take a clone from a plant you already have, they’re free! You just need to invest in some supplies. Although, you can buy clones from a dispensary if you want.
One of the best things about clones is they are exact genetic replicas of the mother plant from which they were taken. If you have a particular marijuana plant you like, whether for its appearance, smell, effects, or something else, you can take clones of it and grow it again, ad infinitum.
