Ok let's say I grow a couple plants (2). During their life, I will take 1 clone of each plant. After the original plants are harvested and cured months down the road, I determine which plant I want to use (which clone to use). By this point, the clones are quite large. I throw away the clone which I didn't pick. Because of the size of the clone at this point and/or my OCD way of doing things MY way, i take 3 clones (cuttings) from the original "clone." I then toss this "clone" mother plant and start from scratch with 3 small cuttings. Or if you want to put it a different way, clones of a clone. Am I doomed to get bad genetics? No where have I ever seen this discussed even though I've always wondered. Discuss!
