Re-vegetate for clones

If a plant that was flowered and put back into vegetative state, could it be used to produce viable clones?

Yes. That is one of the main uses for the re-vegetative technique. Once you know a plant is a good candidate for cloning you can get it back into the vegetative cycle and use the new growth for clones.

To re-vegetate a plant, leave some vegetation on it when it is harvested and then turn the lights on continuously. Within a few weeks the plant will sprout new vegetative growth.
