Monster pruning refers to the extraction of cannabis clones from a parent plant that has entered a flowering cycle. Cannabis clones are usually taken from the vegetative parent plant.
However, you can also make clones of plants that are already beginning to flower – but this is best done within the first few weeks. When exposed to light for at least 18 hours, these horribly cut clones returned to a vegetative state. Click over here to know more about marijuana clones.

Clones from flowering plants often take longer to take root than clones from vegetative parent plants, because of the hormones associated with flowers in the plant.
Since these clones take longer to take root, it is important to prepare for their health several days longer than traditional clones.
It is these developing hormones that are the desired result of the monster slashing technique: although this "mixed signal" may initially cause distinct mutations in your clone. Once the growth of the very large cut clone has subsided, you will find that the clone grows much stronger and stronger than the normal clone.
While you can treat clones with monsters like any other (slow rooting) clone, those clones need to be monitored more carefully. This is due to the load they impart in the transition to the vegetative state during the rooting process.
If a plant is under excessive stress, it can become hermaphrodite (male and female) leading to seed production in your garden – even if your garden consists of only one plant.
