A Marijuana Clone Box has its own unique environment, which will be divided into three stages. The primary stage is for developing. It is the growing of a germ, nut, or other conceptive bodies, typically after a time of torpidity or blooming. It is likewise the admission or retention of water, the progression of time, freezing or chilling, warming, warming, O2 accessibility, and illumination introduction that may all work in starting the procedure. The other one is for saplings and duplication to grow, and the endmost is for a few parent or mother plants to grow, expand, and vegetate.
During their lifespan, marijuana clones go through two cycles: the vegetative stage and the period of flowering. A plant does most of its root and leaf growth during the vegetative period and should receive about 18 hours of light and 6 hours of darkness every day. This can trigger something called pre-flowering if clones were not kept in the vegetative growing state lengthy enough. Cannabis plants are photosensitive, indicating that if they receive too much darkness, they can bloom, which can also cause discomfort or stress to the plant (hermaphrodite: seed production).
- Carbon filter exhaust fan which enables the plants to have fresh air
- Hydro or thermal meter which is for the monitoring of the temperature and humidity and also for its measurement
In the initial stages, marijuana plants are highly sensitive. For your marijuana clone to develop into a beautiful and healthy flower, special care is highly essential. The clones are expected to be pest-free and disease-free, but here are some tips on how to care for them to make sure you are successful with the plants you pick. Upon leaving every retail location, please check your clones, and if you see any problems, please report them to the retail staff immediately.
In creating this Marijuana Clone Box, you will need these items in your possession:
A cannabis clone is a perfect example of asexual propagation— synthesizing a single parent plant from outside the means of sexual reproduction. Usually, cannabis clones begin by splitting a healthy mother plant and then provide the conditions necessary for cutting to develop into a genetically similar plant.
Watching for indications of heat stress, such as drooping or scrunching and curling of the leaves, is necessary to keep a close eye on the plants in this early stage of its life. If they indicate any sign of stress or discomfort, you could give them a break by placing then under the shade. It is wise to continue to provide additional lighting through the day’s dark cycle, ensuring that they do not collect or obtain more than 10 hours of darkness. The flowering cycle is the point where approximately 12 hours of light and 12 hours of blackness or darkness and are received by the plant. The plant is usually triggered in an outdoor garden to flip into its flowering cycle around the Summer Solstice period, which falls every year, usually in the month of June.
The core purpose of a clone is to replicate and maintain a marijuana plant’s genetic identity. When developed according to the same conditions as the mother plant, a clone is certainly more likely to display the physical and chemical characteristics of the mother than a sexually cultivated plant. A clone should have remarkably similar cannabinoid and terpene profiles to its mother plant as long as environmental conditions stay consistent throughout its life cycle. It must also represent the ability of the mother to take in nutrients and to avoid and withstand pests or fungi.
- Supply your clones with water with a diluted solution of nutrients (400-600 parts per million or ppm) and position them under a fluorescent fixture of low intensity; T8 or T12 bulbs are suitable for this reason, T5 bulbs may cause plants to start “stretching” before you are even prepared.
- Be prepared to keep the cubes moist, but also be cautious not to encourage the accumulation of standing water in the tray. This will limit the plant’s rate of growth, hold them a reasonable size, and make sure that some clones are not overshadowed or dwarfed by larger ones.
- As your clones start stretching, be sure to reorganize them to avoid “shading out” some clones and transplant them as early as possible.
