Clones

Cloning is a popular technique for growing Girl Scout Cookies strain plants. All you have to do is prune a branch off an older plant, and plant the cutting so that it will grow as its own plant. Utilizing Girl Scout Cookies clones offers a number of advantages over beginning the process with seeds, depending on your needs.

Cloning Process

To start off, you will have to prune a strong, sturdy plant in its vegetative growth phase. You should make the cut with sterilized blades, with about 6-8 inches on the pruned branch.

You will then cut off the lowest leaves, while leaving the rest. You’ll then take the pruned leaves to a rooting tray. While the stem is submerged, make another, diagonal cut near the bottom. This is an important step. Diagonal cutting will give it access to more nutrients. Most importantly, this must be carried out in the water. This way, you will prevent any air bubbles from forming in the stem, which can kill a plant. For the same reason, you must keep the stem submerged throughout the rooting process, even while replacing water.

Alternatively, you can use rockwool to help grow roots. It is important to keep the clone in a humidity dome until the roots grow, which should take between 1-2 weeks. Once it has roots, the Girl Scout Cookies clone can be safely transplanted to grow normally.

Male Vs. Female Clones

First of all, all clones will be the same sex as the mother plant. If you clone from female plants, you can be certain of not having to remove any males. It’s easy to tell the difference between male and female – males develop pollen sacs, while females develop white hairs. Only female plants will be harvested for their buds. Males are generally only useful for limited sexual reproduction to maintain genetic diversity.

Cloning by its nature preserves the exact genetics of the plant. This can be useful in maintaining the attributes of high-quality plants, especially when you’re growing a specific strain, like with a Girl Scout Cookie clone plant. Your best producing plant can be cloned multiple times to increase your crops and spread the productive genes around. The only disadvantage is that excessive cloning can lead to degradation and instability in quality. However, this can be avoided by limiting cloning and using it alongside other methods.

Growth Speed & Convenience

Another reason to use Girl Scouts Cookies clones is speed and convenience. With a clone, you won’t have to go through the germination and early growth process like with seeds. Clones will become mature plants more quickly. You can also have more plants through this method without purchasing seeds or waiting for natural pollination.

    Why are there no pictures of leaves? A spread is important to defining a strain.
