Re-vegging is an option but does take allot of time and is as much a mother plant as any and then youre back to vegging.. Why wouldnt early rooted clones work the same way?
They just don't, a seed contains a boost of energy for growing life that a clone just doesn't have. Especially when flowering directly....also the tap root
The issue has been consistently high quality genetics in seeds.. which is much less of an issue now than it was even 10 years ago...
The chances of finding the holy Grail mum is pretty miniscule, really your better off trying to get struck by lightning..
12/12 from seed is ideal for every kind of cannabis that is not autoflowers...IMO...it's the life cycle the plant naturally wants to take as an annual...
And also once going to a 12/12 from seed routine, you can put all your energy and capital into the flowering area.
