CLONE CARE - TIPS & TRICKS  

 

new clones

Decide where your clone is going to be planted - Outside, Greenhouse or Indoor. Next pick a medium used, either inert (ex: coco /peat moss, soil pot, or soil bed.  West Coast Chronics clones will grow well in either just keep in mind some tips below

 

**Avoid putting fresh clones outside too early when night time temperatures get below 60F 

 

**Avoid putting fresh clones in hot sun or back patio where temperatures are much hotter than actual forecast temperatures

 

**Avoid putting new clones directly under HPS or high intensity LED 

** Be sure not to disrupt the plants photo period.  Clones and plants  designated to go outside should never receive less than 18 hours of light per day.  Failure to maintain proper photoperiod may drastically reduce plant heath, vigor and yield.

ACCLIMATE

Acclimate your clone to its new environment.  Clones coming dispensary shelves need to be acclimated before placing under high intensity lights (HPS or LED) or DIRECT SUNLIGHT 

 

Consiter placing clones going outside in windowsill for a few days 

 

Clones going under HPS ligts should be placed in the shade of other plants or out of direct light 

Clones purchased that will be permanently planted outside can be transplanted into larger pots (ex:3-5gal) can be done after acclimation.  Plants may then be grown outside "weather permitting," cold days and nights should be avoided

**Avoid planting outside too early in the season WCC recommends waiting to perminatly plant outside until at least June in northern PNW maybe even a few weeks longer

FEED PLAN

Documnet your past and future feed schedule to be sure not to over/under feed your plant.  Cannabis is a fast growing plant that requires ample nutrients, but as a clone too much fertilizer will easily kill the plants.  WCC Clones are fed 250ppm of Dyna Gro "Grow" before delivery to dispensaries 

 

TIPS

A PPM meter is an accurate way to measure fertilizer content and new clones (1-3 days from purchase) should not be fed water over 300PPM 

Plants in small pots on constant irrigation can be fed non-stop and will use less fertilizer.  While hand watered plants in larger pots can usually handle  slightly more fertilizer but need to have intermitted fresh water feedings

PLANTING 

INDOOR

Once plants have been in the grow room out of direct sunlight for a few days they can be moved to direct light

GREENHOUSE

WCC Clones can be placed in greenhouse immediately after purchase given that environmental conditions are not exceeding 85 degrees daily or below 60 degrees at night.

 

OUTDOOR

Once clone has been acclimated to the sun, plant in pots or soil beds and place on regular irrigation. 

If plant still displays signs of stress in hot summer sun consider using a shade cloth for several more days

Cold night time temperatures will stress and delay growth.  Plants grown inside until night time temperatures are warmer will preform better
