I am having a hard time cloning a white widow big bud hybrid. I'm using a DIY hydro and aerator with air stones and clonex. PH distilled water
I clone in dirt so I can't say for sure with hydro cloning but watering soil with distilled water is a no no. Not sure if that's a problem in hydro cloning.I am having a hard time cloning a white widow big bud hybrid. I'm using a DIY hydro and aerator with air stones and clonex. PH distilled water
Lol--you know, I still learn new things about growing all the time. In fact, I will be like a newbie when I do an organic outdoor grow this summer. Things have changed a lot since I last grew outdoors in the mid 80s.I am sorry. I stand corrected.
For 4+ decades, I believed what I posted. I guess it's just one of those wrongs you carry with you until someone says different. I'm not sure where I got it but it had a certain logic so it stuck with me.
I just did some searching to substantiate my claim and I couldn't find a single support. I'm not sure where I got it but I have been carrying it for a long time.
Just goes to show how misinformation can travel on the internet. LOL Oops, sorry.
Thanks, HG for the correction.
My favourite cloning method is using a box or shelf with cfls make it tight, i currently have 6 cfls in 1x1.5x1 lxwxh box, makes it warm inside, and i use the oasis cubes, stand them in plates or trays and i let a little bit of water sitting on the bottom not much just a little film, i found the ones kept like that to root faster, i plan on making a simple flood and drain for them one day... with several strains so far, this method has been flawless. I use regular floral oasis from florists, i find this stuff great
i think that you will like them for cloning. i only sometimes presoak them in h2o2 if they were wet and dirty before. new cubes i normally clone straight into them, i cut them about 1.5"x1.5" cubes. i wait for roots to emerge from bottom or sides, directly visible, cubes so easy to flip, the rate is so high with many strains that i tried. they take bottom feeding great i actually dont water them but the plate that they sit in until they suck no more and leave a little film for evaporation. i will soon install a sort of a mini flood and drain to keep them hydrated automatically just plug it in with the veg cycleWhy didn't i think about that? oasis. i have it in my garage... THANKS zem!!!
