wait until they are 2-4 weeks old. then if you dont see any progress you can get rid of them. maybe its something genetic, as some clones may take more from the fathers genetics than the mothers, or viceversa.
Huh? :huh:.... I don't believe so, but if you'll elaborate, I will listen. "develop some genes more than others".. :confused2:
I can understand environment possibly inducing or inhibiting certain 'characteristics', but 'genetically' nothing changes.
hmm.. in 20 years of cloning, "I" have never seen it. From any plant, not only mj. Every clone I have ever taken, rooted and grown to maturity(at LEAST hundreds) has been identical to the donor. unless it went through some traumatic stress or deprivation.
As I said before, I do understand how you could possibly promote a 'more' sativa strain, to exhibit 'more sativa' characteristics through environment. But it is STILL 70/30. I don't believe anything genetic has changed.
I think I'd like to see/read some botanical evidence relating to this.
I have also seen it stated somewhere on here that taking your clones when they are beginning to flower on the mother thats way they are genetically predisposed to begin flowering quickly, and the use of phosphrous is also helpful but I wont say where or when or how to administer in reference to the the cloning to transferring to medium timing, I have never cloned.
Clones taken during flowering will do some funky things as they reveg...a lot of times mine throw single bladed leaves for a while and look like a hot mess.
Give them sometime and they will get straightened out. This is why taking clones during flower is not the best practice. In my experience they often take longer to throw roots as well.
I gotta agree with Hick though...they call them clones for a reason. Genetic copies of the mom they were taken from. Jmo
