Looking to jump-start your hemp and cannabis clone farm, but you do not know where and how to get started? Well, you are not alone as many people out there have similar concerns, and this article will provide you with much needed information.
It is important to note that all hemp clones are not created equally. Some varieties exhibit better resilience to mold, insects, diseases, and drought while others require more or fewer nutrients. We have yet to mention humidity and soil types, but the truth of the matter is that these latter factors dictate the kind of the clone you will be able to grow in your area. Of course, you will need a strain that will grow throughout the seasons and produce the best yields possible.
Well, if you are living in the Pacific Northwest, Northwest, Southwest, and South, then you need to consider planting strains that will tolerate high humidity and do well in soils such as Alfisols, Andisols (volcanic soils), Aridisols, Mollisols, and Inceptisols. Fortunately, through genetic engineering, clone varieties have been established that do exceptionally well in these regions. These genetically engineered clones include the following:
Sativa genetics is known historically to thrive well in the equatorial areas around the globe. However, research has shown that it can do exceptionally well in California and other regions in the Pacific Northwest and south. The bud and plant structure are typically airier, and this helps the clone withstand high humidity levels and extreme temperatures. For this reason alone, sativa hemp clones are incredibly popular in areas with higher rainfall and humidity.
2. Somango XL
This clone has been genetically created to produce an uplifting cerebral rush. More importantly, its users do not feel lethargic or tired. Derived from cloning Critical 47 and Somango X, this strain boasts of immense resilience to adverse weather conditions like prolonged dry spells. This perhaps explains why it can thrive well in most Southwest and Southern parts of the US. It grows to a height of two meters and can produce 600 grams of high CBD flowers in optimal conditions. This clone is always ready for harvest from mid-September.
3. Green Crack
Hemp clones from Green Crack are definitely the right clones for growing in California, Arizona, and other western states. This plant is excellent for growers wishing to try out their green thumb. It is a long-standing strain with high-energy effects and sweet citrus aroma. Most high CBD products that give rise to motivational and uplifted feelings are derived from this clone. While most hemp clones are difficult to grow because of their upward stretch and long-flowering time, Green Crack is easily managed. The presence of Indica genetics in the plant gives it improved yields resulting from a quick flowering time. The only drawback to this cannabis plant is that it is a clone-only strain – hence it is difficult to find.
Critical is yet another hemp clone that does well in these regions. This plant is an excellent all-rounder doing well in all growth aspects. It is a resilient, vigorous, potent, easy to grow, and robust plant. It can do well in seasons where temperatures are incredibly low. Its short flowing time ensures that farmers get their harvest way before the frost begins setting in. This great cannabis strain can grow to reach 2.2 meters high and yield extremely generous produce of deeply relaxing buds. Since it blooms faster, it's harvesting time is around the end of September.
Many other hemp clones can do well in these regions, but those explained above are the most common. So now you have some hints on where you can start your farming this year as far as clone selection is concerned.
