I use oasis cubes straight from my local florist. they are about 5x3x9" I cut it into 1x1x1.5" and put them in seedling trays the ones that resemble egg trays. insulated floor, dome and a bunch of cfl's that i turn on as needed to keep the temps right. I actually had a couple of 100w incandescents to help with the heating when it was very cold. I placed a sort of bucket under them to prevent their light from hitting the clones directly as I felt that it was harming them and I just wanted the heat. I do not use a heat mat. I used to have an automated flood and drain but I felt like handwatering them fresh tap water every time helps oxygenate and clean the rootzone so that's what I ended up doing. My dome stays on until the last one roots. They root in 10-15 days. I rarely ever lose a clone with this method and I don't use any gels or hormones.
The light bulb idea may work as I need to increase the temp in my dome a couple degrees. It’s been steady at 71 degrees which may be ok but I think I need to provide a little more heat to the roots without exposing that hot bulb to the plants. Thanx for replying

Any Buds from older grows to enter bud of the month contest?
OMG I love this picture. No big buds yet I just turned my first grow into flower. I am really learning as I grow. I’ll take any advice I can get. I have nothing to compare mine to. Maybe one day I can join the big bud club 😁 thanks for posting the picture. I love it

Root riot plugs I use to use them back in the day and I'm sure there around 100 or so in my wine cooler, but I only use 4in rockwool make four nice big tall pieces so your cutting dont have to be so short I never loose cuttings either never.

Do you plant the wool in the transplant process Right in your medium? They look sturdy. I had trouble getting big clones as my plants are fairly short and bushy. Not many more than 6” long before cloning. Will the rockwool support a smaller clone?
