Marijunana Propogation Question
    #191779 - 02/03/09 03:08 AM (7 years, 10 months ago)

Hey guys, so I have heard that taking clones from clones will eventually result in a totally undesirable plant. So, could I keep a plant alive solely for the use of cloning without encountering any genetic problems down the line?

Lol... They call them Mother Plants.  Its a plant that if done right can produce massive ammounts of clones for several years...

check out this thread by Annom, it describes the whole process of growing and selecting a mother plant.

I have never heard that, can someone validate the truth to this statement/question?

they say start new moms every year, but imo/e they will provide longer than that, as long as you let them recoup and keep her healthy.

I'm not sure if this is true. I've heard many stories of people who always make clones from clones and never saw any decrease in quality. I'm sceptical unless someone provides some evidence for this theory.

Yes, that's what most do.

i'd bet that the further you go down the lines of clone-from-clone-from-clone-etc the greater your chances of somehow altering the DNA (from so many cell-divisons), but the chance of that happening is still extreeemely small.

i wouldn't worry about it.  however, it is much easier to grow a mother and take clones from her.  i imagine that it is a lot less work compared to regrowing a mother-plant over and over and over.

The cells of a mother plant have also sustained many divisions if kept for a long while and harvested continually.

Luckily for us plants have amazing DNA repairing mechanisms and have a greater control on telomere length so they can basically keep on growing pretty much indefinately if given the right conditions. This is probably due to the fact that a plant can't substitute old cells for newer ones once they die due to the presence of cell walls. For example, if one of your liver cells dies, the next door cell will divide and that cell will be replaced. In plants if a cell dies it still has a cell wall covering it so no other cell can move in to take its place. So each cell in the bottom inch of your plant, for example, will have been there since the plant stopped growing at that height.

I have seen invitro cultivations of relatively old plant tissues spring to life like young buds once the right hormone stimuli were present.

right, but they all grow from one main base, all "second-generation" clones if you will.  by going from clone to clone to clone, you add an extra generation of cloning at each step, from 2 to 3, to 14 if you carried it on long enough.  you could potentially have a lot more "generations" of cell divisions. 

again, the chance of any abnormality surfacing is still exceedingly small, but the chance of it occuring at all is somewhat greater compared to the mother->clone process.

I can understand the theory... i know with mushrooms you can really only G2G so much before the cells just stop.  I forgot to ask the gardener (i work with a green house lol) about this today!  But i will find out a deffinite answer.... but i agree with the theory that cloneing a clone leads to inbreeds... ewww...

no, but still a concept that makes me believe it.  Its the theory... nothing in concrete yet.  But i like to try and relate something i DONT know to something i DO know to try and hypothesize my opinion...

I was just saying i can understand where that comes from... because of things like G2G having a stopping point...

Well, after some research, i found this!  http://www.gardenscure.com/420/propagation/36713-over-cloning.html One guy says...

"If you clone the clone you will lose some vigor and bud size, but not much. If you clone the clone of the clone of the clone etc etc, you will lose much of the desired traits, and end up with as you said crap weed."

Then it said to check out another thread but i dont wana sign up to gain the search function to find the other thread... lol.  sry... anyone care to do such?

It makes sense sort of... Because while it may have the same genetics i personally think it sort of stresses it and you loose traits and such.  Cause i always wanted to do SOG with no mothers... just about 2-3 weeks into flower take a clone or two from each plant... boom... new crop.  But i cant find any evidence of this being done and such...

what you guys are talking about is called senescence, and it doesnt happen in weed clones from what i've read, and my experience with taking clones of clones of clones of clones of clones.

Straight from the horses mouth, there ya have it.

Lol, this is a long conversation with no answer. May I step in? I am a plant biology grad student and deal with this sort of question every day.

Senesence in fungi and animals (related to age) is very different than in plants (where it is related to the cycle of loosing leaves based on environmental factors) , so lets get rid of the term for now.

Nibin was spot on when he described the DNA repair mechanisms in plants as related to their age. Unlike most organisms, plant cells will not stop dividing after a certain number of divisions which is what causes genetic aging in in these other organisms. What this means is that under perfect conditions plants can age indefinitely.

Now no system is perfect, but in practice, a mother plant will continue to produce fantastic clones for it's entire life span without any mutation or degraded performance.
