Clones for medicine production or cash cropping, seed for listening to life's music.
Adding to the above... If you do not mind variety go with seeds.
To answer the original question... I am currently growing from seeds. I do not have the extra space to keep a dedicated vegetative tent and dedicated flowering tent.
I'm running four unfamiliar strains in a new setup this year. All from seeds, 12 each (=48 plants), with the first run just finishing up.
I'm looking for one pheno of each strain but won't keep moms. I took a half dozen clones of each first time around to be safe (= 288 plants looked at).
Onto only the third generation of clones and it's easy to see the number of plants that I've already juggled whilst looking for keepers.
I keep good notes and track every plant back to the original seed, but won't make a call until 2 or 3 runs.
A game of numbers, and a long one.
It's a complicated start but I know I will be happy when I can finally stabilize with just the four predictable phenos.
Of course the door will always be open on a new seed strain and the challenges and beauty that comes with it
Holy shot gosple
Life's music, from seed...
Clones are for cones, seeds are for breeds.
Only reason i ever had seeds was to breed whatever characteristics were desired.
Clones are for production and as tyystikk originally stated for consistency/uniformity.
Unless you have the time to fully mature a plant from seed(and that's not necessarily just long enough to flower it) there's no reason not to go from clones, in my mind. You can flower out at any time, any size, and its already fully mature/potent.
I like running from seed to find keepers. In my experience the really great keepers most guys hold pretty tight unless you have something special to offer. Generally the things everyone else already has are not enough. So I run my seeds, find my keepers and it's in turn gotten me access to some really great cuts. It's all a balance IMO.
Fuck that. Share the love, you get more back that way.
Clones for cash, seeds for stash?
It is the way it is around here. I share but not everyone does. In my experience if you share you get more coming back your way anyway.
Can't wait to flower out this Warlock.
I like growing from seeds , searching for a special pheno. I only clone my own mothers.... never bringing someone else's clones to my grow.... less chance of getting bugs.
willing to pay it forward... lol
it was just a joke about you passing up great genetics and im starving for some of those
wishing you could pass then over here lol
one that puts me flat on my ass unable to carry on conversation with 2 tokes
but im afraid those days are behind me
That has a lot to do with tolerance.
Lots of strains will get you ripped but you need to have a low tolerance to get that high.
Girlfriend took 4 pulls on a joint last night and didnt move from the couch for over 3 hours, said she thought it was 20 mins. Wish I could still get that high
Of course you can! Just quit for a month first...
me, not likely
I didn't say it would be easy, lol
@Morriston55 Another thing to do might be to make some STRONG edibles. That will break through your tolerance and you blazed for sure.
