All requested deposits must be paid in full before an order will be considered confirmed.
Clones & Clone Teens
Premium Clones are propagated using traditional methods from our thriving garden of mother plants. They are produced from award-winning genetics and arrive to your garden pest and disease-free, 6 inches in height and rooted. These are available in a 2 inch rock wool cube or peat soil.
Heartlet Clones are propagated using traditional methods from our thriving garden of mother plants. They are produced from award-winning genetics and arrive to your garden pest and disease-free, 4.5 inches in height, and rooted. These are available in a 1.5 inch rock wool cube or peat soil.
Teen Clones are propagated using traditional methods from our thriving garden of mother plants. They are produced from award-winning genetics and arrive to your garden pest and disease-free, 15-18 inches in height, topped once, thoroughly rooted in 1-gallon pots, and ready to flower. These are available in rock wool cubes or peat soil.
Strains & Pricing
All information about our clone strains can be accessed through our Strain Catalog. You can also download our strain cheat sheet PDF. All pricing varies by order size and newer strains can include breeder royalty fees. Volume and contract discounts are available.
Delivery Timeline & Order Minimum
Depending on the time of year, clone orders should be placed 4-6 weeks in advance and teen orders should be placed a minimum of 6 weeks in advance. During our peak season between March – June we will sell out quick, so planning and pre-ordering for Spring is highly encouraged! If you are requesting that your clones be planted in rock wool cubes your order may take longer than normal. The order minimum for clones is 500 stems and for teens is 150 stems.
A feminized seedling is a small, immature plant that is sprouted from a feminized seed. “Feminized” means that the breeder used a process called “feminization” to create seeds that are 99.5% female. Check out our feminized seedling page for more information or see this earlier post to learn more about the feminization process.
Dark Heart sources their seeds from award-winning breeders, Humboldt Seed Company and then germinates them in the nursery with optimal levels of light, heat, humidity, and nutrients. Germination is the delicate process where a seed cracks open and its tap root grows downward in search of food, while its stem reaches for the light. Seeds are placed in a balanced peat and perlite mix that aids with rapid rootball development.
Every seedling is checked and watered daily until it has at least 2 sets of true leaves. All seedlings must pass a quality check before leaving the nursery to ensure healthy leaves and roots.
Feminized Seedlings are grown in grow coons filled with peat soil and are shipped between day 18 – 21 at roughly 3 inches in height. They will arrive in 102 cell trays, with 2 removed. We charge for 95 units out of every 102 cell tray.
Auto Flower Feminized Seedlings are grown in grow coons filled with peat soil and are shipped between day 10 – 14 at roughly 2 inches in height. It is important that they are transplanted before the tap root becomes root bound so plan for transplanting as soon after delivery as possible. They will arrive in 102 cell trays, with 2 removed. We charge for 95 units out of every 102 cell tray.
Feminized Seedling Teens are only available by special request.

Strain availability for seedlings is constantly changing based on inventory, so pre-ordering is highly encouraged!
Delivery Timeline & Order Minimum
Feminized seedlings are made to order, so we’d need a minimum of a 4-week lead time for regular feminized seedlings and a 3-week lead time for auto flower feminized seedlings. The minimum order for all feminized seedling types is 950 units.
