Selling clones is a great way to make additional money while growing cannabis in your facility. If you are selling clones for the first time, this is an easy-to-follow guide on how to create clone batches, package your plants, and create sales orders for selling clones.
Creating Strains for Clone Batches
Creating strains is a fundamental part of creating clones to sell. Without strains, there is no way to create clones. Without items, there are no other ways to categorize your clones let alone create a package.
How to Create Clones as an Item
To create immature plant items, you will navigate to Admin > Facility Data > Items.
After selecting Items, you can choose Create Item or view a list of items that you have previously created. Once you see the dialog box, you can name your item + select the item type.
The name of the item that you want should reflect the convention below in the screenshot (Strain Name - Item Type) This makes it easy to see what types of clones are in your Inventory Availability. Next, choose which facility the item will be located in (if you have multiple facilities). Next, go to Item Type.
- If your plants are being sold in soil, select the Item Type “Immature Plants”
- If you are selling cuttings, select the Item Type “Clone - Cutting”
In the Strain field, specify which strain your clones are derived from. Lastly, the weight unit for clones must always be Each. This is because clones are quantity-based sales rather than weight-based sales. Click on the Create button (as shown above). Now you have created your clones as an inventory item and can feel free to move to the next step! (For further context on how to create items, see the GIF below!
Creating Clones in your Facility
There are a few different ways to enter your clones into your facility. You can track them by their mother or create a group of immature plants that you gathered from an outside source. We will start with how to identify mother plants and how to use them.
- A mother is a plant that is used to create cuttings. These cuttings can grow roots and become a plant.
To create a batch of clones from a mother plant, you must first identify the mothers in your facility.
|Identifying Mothers and Creating a Batch of plants from a Mother|
To create a batch of mothers, you will create a batch of plants from one strain that you intend to use as mother plants. The next important part of this process is to ensure that you leave the plants as immature plants in the batch to use those plants as mothers. There has to be at least one immature plant in a batch to create clones from that specific mother plant batch. This is why it is extremely important not to move the mother plants to Flowering. Leave them as immature plants until you can no longer wish to produce clones from those plants.
When creating the batch, be on the lookout for the “Is Mother Plant Batch Option”. This has to be selected to create a batch of plants that contain mothers.
