Is it possible to make cuttings from autoflowering cannabis plants?

Written by on 30 December, 2021

Autoflowering cannabis plants are very attractive strains for any cannabis grower because they are generally characterized by being easy to grow, and they grow quickly.

As you may know, these strains flower automatically, without requiring the grower to make changes to the light cycle, as is the case with photodependent cannabis flowers.

About these varieties there are some concerns, one of them is to know if with these strains it is advisable to make cuttings, surely you also have this doubt, then keep reading this post, here we will talk about it.

Cuttings of autoflowering strains?

Cuttings are the cloning of a mother plant, so their qualities will be practically identical to those of the plant from which they have been cut.

Well, auto strains are not very conducive to cuttings. You see, as we mentioned, these varieties grow very fast and flower on their own; therefore, when you take a cutting from these plants, it will copy their same characteristics and follow the same genetic calendar. This is because it would have less time to grow and develop, becoming a small plant with insignificant buds.

There are growers who claim to have achieved successful harvests from cuttings of autoflowering strains; however, it is unlikely to obtain satisfactory results.

On the other hand, with photoperiodic strains, cuttings can offer very good yields, because by taking the clones in the vegetative phase and maintaining the light cycle, the plant will have more time to develop, and when it has reached the right size, the grower can pass it to flowering without any inconvenience.
