When I first started growing my buddy told me to always buy or plant more than you need. He said to buy or make 2 to 3 times more clones than you actually need. Is this a typical rule of thumb?
I remember the 1st time I tried to grow 99 plants from seed I only ended up with about 24. After all the work of sexing was done. So the next year we started 200 seeds still only ended up with about 75 after everything was done. Is this typical?
So this time we used clones but I remembered my buddy’s advice to alway make more than we need. We made 300 cuttings and ended up with about 150 to 175. Still we only used 99. Pulled the best 99 and had a way better experience.
Is this common practice?
