Editor's Note: Welcome to MCNGrowing101.

We know you want to start growing for multiple reasons, but maybe you don't know where to start. That's why, we decided to embark on this adventure that we'll call #MCNGrowing101. Our readers will be able to find in this section the best farming techniques with the best growers in the community.

Our first columnist is our great friend and grower MadScientist. Loved by some, hated by others; Sci wants to share with all of you everything he has learned in over 25 years of growing.

"The main thing in the end is to have fun, grow as people and as a community, and please don't sell flowers or finished product.  Learn how to cultivate to hit drug trafficking, not our freedom."

Without further ado, let's go to what we came here:

When we start our cultivation, always the eternal question. Do I start with seeds or clones?

Let's review the differences between one method and another, as it cannot be said that there is superiority between either of the two.

Seeds

The seeds have root tip, which travels with gravity and extends its branches along the pot. Another important variable is germination. Safely stored the viability of a cannabis seed should be between 5 and 10 years, sometimes up to more.

Extra help is sometimes required to help the seed burst and begin its hydrolyzing process. Apart from the ripening of the harvests and the maturation process of the trichomes is like a pandora's box.

It takes a lot of skill, especially when growing different strains   simultaneously, correcting uniformity and protecting from excesses and deficiencies is almost like juggling the needs apart from each crop.  

You never know what is going to happen. Most people who grow always from seeds are looking for a "jewel" among the genetic pool  of their recent acquisitions, which, in many cases, new trends of crosses and the "hype" makes us keep looking for more and more, buying seeds for many  growers  is addictive.

Clones

Clones, by definition, are a plant that contains the genetic material identical to that of the mother plant. Our grandmothers called them "little children."

The clones lack root tip which affects their vertical growth to some extent, but the fact of coming from a mother plant that in most cases is sexually ready to flower, the clones can even start at 12/12.

Clones are usually received from "reliable" sources and with genetics and verified results, because of the consistency that exists in each cut with respect to their mother. They are easier to grow, and are very predictable, which makes them reliable.

The biggest problem with clones is pests. We must always quarantine the clones we receive, no matter who it is. Pathogens and viruses, in addition to the pests that come in clones, could ruin your garden.

But at the same time after a couple of cycles of running the same genetics, you should be able to mix the nutrients with your eyes closed, or in our case, even without meters... Not that I recommend it, the acute measurement of both particles per million (ppms) and pH are of extreme importance.

Conclusion

It depends on our need, so the resources that we can exhaust for our cultivation. Clones are generally used commercially for their proven performance, ease and reliability. Clones are free, if you have good friends. Or good genetics and you make a mother plant.

Seeds are expensive, especially feminized, and/or automatic, but we can be very surprised, unlike clones, which will always be the same.

The main thing in the end is to have fun, grow as people and as a community, and please do not sell flowers or finished product.  Learn how to grow to hit drug trafficking, not our freedom.
