Cloning

I read a while back that if you were to keep cloning  clones (no mother) you eventually come to a dead end with genetics (poor yield/potency/growth)...is this true? Sorry for the noob question

I have no experience to back this up but I've read that you can clone a clone infinitely with no diminishing qualities, and as long as a mother is healthy and has branches available to clone I don't see why it wouldn't give healthy cuttings.

Well I know cloning from a mother produces infinite clones...im talking about cloning a clone...like every time you're about to put a girl into flower you chop a couple clones off her. Repeating that process indefinitally would you run into problems?

Ok good...i have a very small and secretive space to work in. I basically want to harvest a small plant every few weeks by continuous cloning and selecting the best of 4 clones from the previous clones...once I get kick ass genetics i'll make her a mother.

The whole point of cloning though is that the genetics never change.  You will have the exact same plant over and over, so you might as well make the first plant the mother unless your working with several different strains to select one you like.  Your clones will be always be exactly the same except for the way that you grow them.

Oh... I always thought there were small differences in clones which could allow you to take a plant with poor genetics and slowly turn it into a much superior plant through genetic selection...i guess I had the wrong idea for that term :crazy:
