When it comes to unique cannabis offerings, not only are we committed to preserving the impactful genetics, but we’re focused on providing our customers with a cultivar experience unlike any other. And what helps us achieve our unique cuts? Our impressive stable of mother plants.
The mother plant is the plant our cultivation specialists take clones from. A clone, also known as cutting, is a branch or shoot that is cut off a cannabis plant which will then be rooted out and grown into a full plant itself. A clone has the exact same genetic makeup as the plant it was taken from, which is called the mother plant.
In our Mom Room, mom plants are always kept in vegetative state by maintaining an 18 hours on, six hours off lighting cycle. These long days of light prevent the mother plant from flowering—they only produce shoots, leaves and roots. The new growth is snipped off and grown into a separate cannabis plant with the exact same genetic material as the mom.
This method of propagation guarantees genetic consistency. So, you end up producing a cannabis cultivar that grows with the same vigour and rate as its mom, produces a homogeneous quality flower, as well as has the same structure, potency, terpenes, colour, and effects of the mom plant.
What makes a good mother plant? Here’s what we look for:
- Overall plant health
- Clean and free of pests and pathogens
- Vigorous growth and proper plant training
- Number and quality of cuts that can be taken
Our healthy mom plants, along with our methodical and thoughtful cloning process, play a crucial role as we write our chapter in the story of cannabis. And we have some bad ass, unique mothers in our Mom Room.
