Every plant is slightly different and has different characteristics. They vary in growth pattern, yield, flavour and strength, just to name a few of the ways they can be different. Propagation is a way of growing the same plant over and over. Once you have found a plant that you are really fond of, by taking cuttings from it and rooting them, you can keep those genetics going for a long time. To do this successfully and repeatedly you will need some decent propagation equipment. At the bare minimum you will need rooting plugs, rooting hormone, a scalpel, a pistol spray gun and a propagator. Other handy items are a thermometer/hygrometer and a dedicated grow light like a T5 fluorescent panel, or the excellent Maxibright 200W or 300W LED Grow Light and maybe even a dedicated grow tent. Make sure that the propagation equipment and the area you're going take the cuttings is completely clean to avoid getting infections into the cut.
