If I wanted to try monster cropping this batch, when is the best time to take the clones? And should I target the small popcorn colas at the bottom for cloning or would I have better luck with one of the top colas?

Hi @Kaboose13! Clones should be taken during the vegetative stage, otherwise you'll have to take them back to veg, this may give great results if done correctly, but it takes weeks to properly re-veg clones. However I won't try to do it on your babies, it's too late and the chances for a re-veg success are low. You'll destroy potential buds and loose everything! Hope this helps, I'll be around, keep us up-to-date and happy growing!

The best time to cut some clones is when the marijuana plant is about 3 weeks into the flowering stage. Make sure to use clean and sterile razor blades or snips. When choosing which parts to take, go for the lower branches as they tend to root faster than from the ones on the top. Cut diagonally across the stem so there’s more surface for nutrients and water to get in. After taking the clones, place it in a glass of water and let it sit there for some time. This will ensure that no air seeps into its fragile vascular system. Switch the clones once completed cutting to a rock wool cube in a tray of one inch standing water. To get the clones back to the vegetative state, simply utilize the light schedule for that stage. 18 hours of light or more per day.
