Before we tell you about our clones we need to clear up a common misconception.
Many people seem to think that if they buy a clone or seed that is from an excellent strain of weed that won a cannabis cup that the plant they grow with this clone of a cannabis cup winning strain will end up being of the same quality just because of it's award winning genetics. Also Some people think that if the picture has a lot of crystals that they can grow it identical with just dirt and water and because of the look of the picture they think it will come out to be the same quality. There is a reason why so many people try to grow and quit shortly after discouraged and frustrated with lost time and money.
Here's the truth,
an amature grower can take a seed or clone of a strain like Skywalker OG and the plant he grows may end up being crap with no more than 6% THC even though the strain has been tested at somewhere between 19%-25%. An experienced grower can take a seed from a bag of crappy import and the plant he grows from that seed will be as good as most of the MMJ you see at dispensaries. Although a lot has to do with genetics as well as technique. Same with clones. Growing ( Clones or Flowering ) its all about technique and genetics. So the best method is to get seeds from a reputable seed breeder to ensure you are getting the strain you want. Clones are a little more risky as there are a lot of bad clone companies out there, so even if you do not buy from us, here are some tips to help you how tell good quality cuts from the bad ones. Although there is no way to ensure you actually get the strain you want, or getting a healthy strain in general.
Here's some basic information to know what to look for when buying clones.
First off you want honestly from the get go. If you're not sure what to ask, or how to tell if they are lying to you, Try using these tips to start off with. This will help you tell if the person is lying to you about the clones they carry. No honest company will lie to you. If they are honest chances are they have what they say they do
One thing that everyone must know about marijuana clones is
** THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A LAB TESTED GENETIC VERIFICATION FOR MARIJUANA PLANTS**
Which means if a company says their strain is verified by lab testing.. They are lying. Also research the company before purchasing on google to see what others are saying. Every company has complaints but if a company has multiple complaints about the same issue over and over, then you should consider steering clear from these companies. Mr. Clone is the only company that actually allows any and all reviews to be posted on their site as long as there is no foul language or racist remarks. So not only do you get to see the good, you also get to see the bad. We will not hide anything from our patients. You get to see it all.
This is why Mr. Clone was created. To bring a honest clone company that has the quality of cuts and actually has the strains that it lists. Not only will you get the strain you ordered, but you will never get unwanted strains with your order just so we can fill it. If we are out of a strain, we tell you. If our cuts looks small or kinda crappy, we throw them out. Mr. Clone will never deliver a cut that the owner wouldn't take and grow himself. That is the Mr Clone standard.
What makes Mr. Clone superior to all other clone companies?
Why do our cuts produce better quality buds with higher yields every time?
Here is a detailed breakdown of how and why.
All of our strain mom's come from seeds not clones. This guarantees we are getting the correct strains and genetics. It also ensures you start off with a healthy, pest and pathogen free plant.
How to Confirm A Plant was Grown From Seed
There are two characteristics that all marijuana plants grown from seed have that a plant grown from a clone / cutting will not have.
The first thing to look for is to look at the branching at the base of the stalk. If the branch pattern is in pairs of two's (one branch growing at the same level as another branch but on the direct opposite side of the stalk) at the base of the stalk then it's almost definitely a marijuana plant grown from seed, not a clone. ( Example picture is in our photos section ) A cannabis plant grown from a clone / clipping will have staggered branching at the base of the stalk.
The other thing to look for is concentric rings (indentations) around the base of the stalk. This is something only a marijuana plant grown from seed will have.
You can't be certain the clone / plant you are buying is the strain the person says it is, but you can at least keep yourself from buying a clone with bugs or a disease. If you buy a clone with a disease or bugs you might introduce something to your garden that will take a lot of trouble and time to get rid of, such as spider mites or powdery mildew (often referred to as PM). Here's a thorough checklist to insure that you are getting a good healthy marijuana clone or plant.
All the leaves should be green, not pale green or yellow and no burnt tips or spots.
The leaves should all be "straight", not twisted or curled like an eagles claw.
The stalk should be green or light brown, not purple or dark brown.
Look the entire clone over for any white or grey spots on the leaves or stalks. Powdery mildew if present, is usually going to be on the top side of a leaf or near the base of the stalk. Really take your time and look thoroughly, powdery mildew can often be hard to spot. PM is very common on clones in California. Once you train your eyes to spot it though, you notice it easily.
Look under a couple of the leaves with a magnifying glass for any bugs. Take at least 20 seconds to let your eyes adjust to the magnifying glass and adequately analyze what you are looking at. Spider mites and a few other types of bugs prefer to hide on the underside of leaves.
Most clones are sold in cups, ( sometimes to conceal the fact they have not rooted yet ) take the cup and hold it over a white piece of paper or hold it over some glass and tap the side of the cup (a good hard tap) at the base a few times. Then check the paper or the glass with the magnifying glass for any bugs. Thrips and a few other types of bugs like to hang out in the soil.
If you are buying aeroponic clones or any other clone that you can see the roots on, the roots should be white, not beige, brown, grey or any other color.
If the roots are brown or soft and mushy, that is a sign of root rot and you should refuse the accept the clones.
So what really makes Mr. Clone better than the rest?
In addition to growing our mom plants from seeds from trusted breeders, preventing unwanted contaminants that can come from clones or cuts ( each strain has breeder listed in menu section ) we also have give our mom's and cuts a little extra to help them get started. The extras we put into our moms and clones do a few different things that are obvious in the end result
Our clones are given the right amount of nitrate's as the plant will store up to 70% of the nitrates it needs for its entire plant life.
We also give our moms a special blend of feed with a special formula I created that will
#1 More root mass with much more lateral root growth. Helping your roots get a great start to whatever medium you transplant to.
#2 Our clones will transition in less time than any other companies.. YES EVEN HARBORSIDE'S CLONES!
Our average transition time is usually 7-9 days instead of the 13-16 day time. You will see buds forming in about a weeks time. That means it has started producing instead of adjusting when put into flowering
#3 Faster rooting time. Our cuts root in 5-7 days. Also they start off with a lot of the stored energy that it will need for flowering. One example is the transition time.
#4 Higher brix and higher resistance to pathogens and pets. Our moms Brix tests show the levels any where between 11.3-15.2 brix. Our mother plants are so healthy that every cutting taken from them will have more root mass, more lateral growth, healthier, have a bigger diameter, already have beneficial bacteria on the roots, ( the white fuzzy stuff ) and will already have a lot of stored energy in the roots that will be needed in flowering.
So what does this all mean.. SImply put
Our clones will be stronger, healthier, faster growing, produce higher yields, better quality and have better tasting buds than any of our competitors located in California. We challenge any and all competing companies to do a side by side with our clones vs theirs. So far none have accepted our challenge. We want to challenge Harborside due to them being quoted as " the best clone company in Cali " fact is.. The reputation comes from actually getting healthy, pest and pathogen free clones, and most importantly.. The strain they say your getting is the strain you get but they are still lacking in preparing your cuts for maximum results. We are unsure if this is because of cost of the extra's they need, or just because most of their customers are just worried about getting clean cuts and getting the actual strain they are told they are getting. Either way... They are behind Mr. Clone when it comes to maximizing your potential.
Mr. Clone now has many of Harborside's customers driving down south to pick up from Mr. Clone as our results show that there is much more to having a great harvest than just getting good genetics. By not giving the strains the necessary ingredients it needs to not just succeed, but to maximize and even exceed what the strain is rated to do, means that you are not getting the maximum potential out of your clones.

Man dude every time I get cones from you I have nothing but great success! Each clone was well rooted with nice bushy bright vibrant roots! Man dude That hook up on the hydro store saved me hundreds!!! Oh, Did I mention the hydro store hookup? Need grow supplies? I literally just saved 200 dollars on normal grow supplies I would have normally paid full price anywhere else. That paid for my clones!! If your new to growing or even a veteran, talk to him about getting a set up and he'll point you in the right direction! Chris always gives you a ton of information. If you have any questions don't hesitate to ask! Its all about customers at Mr. Clones! If your not a very experienced grower, he can tell you which phenos grow the easiest and which ones are more delicate. Its not a money game here like everywhere else. He does NOT want you to fail. I highly recommend this place to any one who is sick of going to different places just to waste your money!
Mr. Clone is 100% LEGIT!!! All my babies were completely rooted and ready for transplant, No mites, no disease, no issues whatsoever!!! Mr. Clone cares about his customers so much that he admitted to me one of them wasn't doing to well and offered to throw in 2 more for free!!! Finally someone who cares about their customers AND has quality product. Don't be fooled by the others that are out there, you will only be met with terrible customer service and people who care more about profit than providing patients with quality clones.
Thanks Mr. Clone!

Chris is an awesome guy who truly cares about his customers. I recently purchased 7 clones from him and had a problem with a few of them. At the time I thought they where just bad clones but after talking to him and getting some pointers I realize I probably didn't take care of them right. Either way Chris was quick to jump at the chance of making it right. He promptly replaced the clones and even threw in a few extra. This is the only place you should be buying your clones from. Trusted true genetics, not the males youl end up with from clone queen. Trust me guys, Chris knows his stuff! Talk to him about what nutrients to use. He's all about service and not just about a quick buck like other companys.
Grabbed 4 different strains 2x each. I saw $10 a pop on Weedmaps but they said the fine prints in description blah blah blah. They were willing to respect the price but as a business man myself I paid in full. Clones were received no problem, I've seen better quality but I've seen much worse. All 8 are now showing new growth and thriving. Can't give 5 stars because I definitely didn't feel any love but I will give respect where do. Could have shot a freebie or two over a $40 difference I willing paid but... Thanks again folks, let's see how the strain produces now (that's what counts) $$$
Sorry but we can not force you to take the discount. I am guessing that is what you wanted us to do? We did offer it but you declined. To be fair, you were the one who actually didn't show yourself love as we tried to but you refused it. Pricing was listed under Clone Prices tab as you were informed at the time of placing your order. I am glad you liked your clones. We strive to deliver quality to all of our patients.
before stumbling upon mr. clone and his service I was making runs to dispensaries buying my clones. I was also paying the same price for clones except having a much lower success rate. I would have to buy almost 10% more clones just to get the number of plants I wanted and by the time they have flower they were at most almost 2 feet tall. my very first batch of clones bought from mr. clone however grew double the size if not larger. It was incredible to see the difference in the plants health. I also had a few questions and concerns about my plants and garden and Chris was more than happy and willing to give me as much help as needed. he would ask about as many questions as I had for him which made me feel like he was truly giving me the help I needed, in the end every piece of advice he has given me has proved usefull my garden and I've been seeing better results. I'd also like to add the respect I have for how he stands behind his work, I have had a handful of clones out of maybe a hundred that I've bought from him that didn't work out and I'm happy to say after diagnosing the problem and communicating with Chris what I was experiencing he was happy to replace them no questions asked. haven't seen any service like this before and I'm glad he's doing what he does, and have no reason to go anywhere else. thanks Chris
I recently had the chance to pick up some beauties from Mr. Clone and Chris was and is awesome with helping choose my strains and advising for my situation. Not just a drop and stop guy he genuinely wants to help make sure you have success! Fast, friendly, courteous, and passionate service along with outstanding product do not hesitate to contact Mr. Clone and ask Chris about getting your own amazing plants!
