    The sad thing is, these noobs are serious. They actually think they know enough to jump online and call names and argue. Talking about tap roots on clones and seed plants having more shoots per node. I don't believe that guy even knows what a shoot is. Big mouthed noobs, fakers, and far left wing politics has ruined this site.

    Ive always found clones, have a bigger yield vs seeds and also have a better immune system.

    If you do "Tissue Culture" you will NEVER have genetic drift.

    You should clone what you want to keep. Clones don't degrade over time, they do yield a little less then a seed. Every time someone grows a seed they are taking a chance on what they're getting. Always growing seeds is more of a hobby grower with limited space kinda thing..

    not totally true,as you still have to make sure everything is 100% female.

    I prefer regs over fems.i started off just growing regs.then I went through a phase of just growing fems.now I grow both,but still prefer regs,for no other reason than I have SLIGHTLY less herm issues from regs.

    I very rarely get a hermie, and when I do, the trait usually disappears once they're cloned. Guess I've been lucky!

    Take a clone off one of those plants, I have seen mothers make fluffy buds, then you take its clones to flower and they are nice and hard.... not sure how that works.

    If your buying seeds arent you taking someone elses (salesmans) word that you getting a great strain?

    Same conditions? I admit I havent been past that in a long time. If a seed lady gives up the fluff...for me..99.9% of the time I cull the subsequent clones in the veg. Been awhile..but thats what I do. Iam too scared these days. I should investigate further I suppose. Like how alot of growers these days report that they get hermans from seed plants but subsequent cuts dont. If that's the case...i need to change up my practices a bit. Cus ive thrown away what looked like FIYAA because it hermaned a skosh. But again..i dont run many seeds these days.

    Just remember if a female plant from seed gets a small amount of male flowers on just the bottom of it, there's an extremely good chance it will grow out of it after taking cuttings. It might take a couple cycles of taking clones before it grows out of it though. Also pollen that come from the small amount of bottom nanners/flowers tend to be pretty stable sexually.
    Now if a female plant throws out male flowers through the middle and top of the plant, and they come out of the buds too, it's a lost cause. It won't grow out of it and all seeds you get from the pollen will be garbage.
    On a side note: Some nanners and full out male flowers on herms don't even have pollen. Most of the time they do, but sometimes they're sterile.

    No im taking the breeders word and reputation,not a middle man which might have a forked tongue.Sort of like getting seeds from a salsman/seed bank not in breeder packs,no way to do business that way.
