I'm going to take cuttings for clones soon. If you check the pics you should see that the taller of the 2 plants has a "Y" where the main stem split. I'm thinking cutting at the bottom of the Y would give me a good cutting/clone. Any thoughts or advice welcome... Thanks!

Hey dude, sure you wouldn’t have a problem cloning but I think under the V may be a bit too big... as you need to cut 45• at the next branch below the V. Could work, you would be better using that V as 2 clones and cutting just above the V lots of Hormones already present in that section due to the prior topping! Good luck:v::skin-tone-2:

Yes you could cut the Y out and have a two-stemmed clone. I'd recommend taking some of the big fan leaves off the clone (lower ones) as the clone will have no roots and will transpire what liquid it has in it very quickly through big leaves. Clones don't need a lot of leaf area while they're trying to create roots, so I chop off all the big fan leaves when taking a clone and prune the lower side shoots as well, leaving a umbrella-looking plant. Once it has roots, I can re-pot it lower down covering some of the long-ish stem. Happy Cloning!

Too big for a clone bro. It might dehydrate quickly...

I think that the clone would struggle and ultimately fail to keep all that foliage alive with no root system.
Better to take several smaller clones out of it, at least in my opinion.

Hi Dude! For sure, a double-headed clone would be perfect! Keep us up-to-date with these clones and happy growing!
