Have you ever wished you could take some cuttings off your outdoor plants? But had no place to grow them yet. Or ever wanted to try to save your strain for the next year? You can take cuttings from your plants and put them in a container in the fridge. These pics are from many years ago. I have since put them in large zip-loc baggies in the fridge. The cutting will store for 12 weeks before thay start losing there color. I have rooted clones that were in stasis for up to 12 weeks. I do this method on indoor grows for no need for mother plant. To stay legal I can only have 6 plants. This way I do not waste a plant on a mother. You can also save some males in stasis for later use as well. I will also take cuttings right before before the plant starts to flower. I can store those cuttings until harvest is over and I am ready to deal with them. I then add a few cuttings to a very small floro box. I grow in the box for 4 months topping the plant like crazy. When spring starts I can put it in a mini greenhouse. Then take cuttings and have saved the strain from year to year with little work. These pics were taken at week 11. You can see them starting to dry up. when in bags they last longer. I have never tried past 12 weeks though. I am sure it can be done though. I never grow outdoor plants or cuttings in an indoor grow. Start from seed only when you start your room. To many bugs to even consider chancing it. Never get cuttings from friends for indoor grows. Thats my rule anyway.
