Overwintering with minimal life support
    #857626 - 07/14/22 07:01 PM (30 days, 4 hours ago)

Due to misfortunes, ended up with only two young females planted late in the season. Will keep them potted for outdoor growing. I plan to make a few clones when the plants get big enough and try to keep the clones vegetating during the frosty months using a minimal grow light and minimal nutrients so they stay small. I'm wondering whether they will thrive and have a productive season if I then plant them outside in the spring. Or will they be tired and weak after several months in the basement, requiring a new cloning cycle?

The more general question is What are the minimum inputs (light, effort, etc.) required to keep a line of clones going indefintely?

You're probably better off growing them out and taking fresh clones than trying to keep them in stasis. 

A simple 100w LED would suffice for lighting, as far as nutrients and effort to keep them alive that will depend on your grow style.  For my current clones, I've been feeding them Jacks 321 nutrients in coco, letting them get huge in solo cups to save on medium.  The only downside is I have to water them 1-2x per day.

If you were to put the clones in self irrigated planter pots of organic soil, you could get away with leaving them alone for a while at a time.
