Whether you have decided to cultivate a Herbs crop at home for profit or personal use, there are some important choices you have to make: If you’ll be growing in soil or hydroponically; indoors or outdoors, and, perhaps most importantly, whether you’ll be starting your crop from seeds or clones. When choosing between seeds and clones, ultimately it comes down to what’s going to work best for your budget, timeframe, and motivation for growing.
The Motivation Factor
Your reason for cultivating your own Herbs crop is an important factor in deciding how you’ll start. When growing for profit, you may want to opt for clones for a faster growth cycle and guaranteed female plants to start generating income. When growing for personal use, seeds may be a good choice if you may have the luxury of a longer growth cycle or want to experiment with your own crossbreeds.
The Advantages (and Disadvantages) of Clones
Before you opt for starting from clones, there are some things you should know. Growing from clones has some distinct advantages, but also has some drawbacks.
Bear in mind that many of the disadvantages of growing from clones can be overcome by choosing to work with a reputable and trusted distributor.
The Advantages (and Disadvantages) of Seeds
Growing from seeds is the more “traditional” method for growing Herbs, but, like clones, seed growing has its own set of advantages and disadvantages.
