At the moment, Face Off OG is only available as a clone. As such, it requires the expert care and attention of a seasoned grower. They are a direct female ‘cut’ from the original ‘motherplant’ and do not need to be germinated. Instead, they are fed ‘pure water’ until their roots begin to grow. However, it requires previous successful experience as some beginners may overwater, overfeed their plants with nutrients, or accidentally expose them to too much heat or moisture.
As a clone, Face Off OG guarantees its growers a full female batch, a perfect replica of its mother’s DNA, and stable chemical compounds. However, they tend to be quite sensitive.

Growers may also apply the Screen of Green method and expose it to a 12/12 light cycle.
