On the one hand, compared to the clones, marijuana seeds have more advantages and fewer disadvantages. It is a well-known fact that seeds are natural and predictable too. In case you buy marijuana seeds from any trustworthy seed bank, so you will have chock-full of information that how your plant is going to develop in terms of yield, qualities, looks, and flowering time. Plenty of cannabis seeds are available in shops, in dispensaries and, throughout the internet so you can get them easily by mail. In fact, cannabis seeds expand faster than clones. The growing plants from seeds make up taproot. In simple terms, taproot is an extension of the stem that anchors the plant as well as grasps it securely. In questing of water and nutrients, taproot is considered one of the greatest sources to drive downward to great depths, even there is also an advantage that we can't measure when growing outdoor crops in hot and dry conditions. As you probably know, seeds are always utmost pure, so you should not worry about spreading harmful diseases to other plants. The plant that is grown from seed will have a hale and hearty root structures, however, its taproot is the core of an entire root system. There are endless benefits of seeds. As a matter of the fact, flowers from seeds are more and extra healthy as well as stronger too. Cannabis seeds are stronger and fruitful in comparison with clones on the market. You can store seeds for a long period of time, moreover, transport easily. Seeds are thoroughly free from pests and diseases. Feminized seeds are always bred to produce only female plants. One the other hand, in comparison to the clones, marijuana seeds have not many disadvantages. All the seeds are not incapable of germinating. Incorrect stored and old seeds may grow slowly. In case you use non-feminized seeds, half of the plants will not produce buds that will end up being male. Seeds start growing and get ready for harvesting after a little more time than clones.

On the other hand, compared to the seeds, marijuana clones have fewer advantages and more disadvantages. In fact, clone is basically a cutting from an elderly cannabis plant that is able to replant and lifts up to produce buds. Clones are almost always mature and established. Although clone is the specific genetic image of the mother's plant. Resultantly, if the mother plant is female, the clone will also definitely female. Clones grow faster than seeds as well as get ready for harvesting because they are already biologically mature. Having no doubt at all, clones flower as quick as a flash if time and space is an issue. On the other hand, in comparison to the seeds, marijuana clones have more disadvantages. As we told you, the clone has a genetic image of the mother plant, so if the mother has any health problem, in such a way the cutting will also suffer. If you are the first time grower, you actually have the lack of experience even you don't know how to deal with such problems, in such a way, the plant dies. Due to the lack of experience, if the mother plant has already problems such as fungus, pests, rotting of the roots, even bacteria, you may inherit the same problem from the clone even these problems can ravage an entire garden. Clones can't easily ship due to its sensitivity. Mostly, dying and damaged clones take more than weeks for recovering. Clones have a high risk of burning by lights and nutrients. Also, it is a known fact that clones are almost always female, so the breeding remains limited. Clone doesn't grow as seed grow because they don't grow a taproot. It has only a single layer of lateral roots, thus, the stem ends close to the soil line where it cuts.
