7 tips on starting and supporting your clones!

Agriculturalists have been using vegetative propagation throughout history so they could continue cultivating the plants that have favorable traits in their grow – these traits can be hardiness, size, and pest resistance. This is done by taking leaf cuttings from the desired plant and growing it into a new plant, this creates a clone of the original plant because this new plant will have the same genetic makeup. This form of cloning is favored by growers because it bypasses the seedling phase, allowing the plants to mature faster, saving the grower money as it allows for a faster turnover in sellable crops!
