How do I create marijuana clones?

Clones are actually really easy to make once you have an established female marijuana plant.

How it Works

Basically a clone is a little piece of plant that has been cut off from a parent plant and then given the opportunity to root on its own. You will want to take clones off a plant when it's in the vegetative stage, and you will tend to get better results if you use clones from a well-established plant (at least two months old). If you grow a plant in the vegetative stage for about 2-3 months, you will be able to get dozens of clones off it.

Should I grow plants indoors or outdoors?

There are two major ways to grow, indoors and outdoors. Some people will use a mixture of the two and grow their plants indoors during the vegetative stage when they need constant light, then transport them outdoors when they are ready to start flowering and only need 12 hours of light a day.
