I forgot to use my cloning powder a couple of crops ago...... didn't remember til a couple days later....... didn't make a difference...... they rooted just fine. My point is don't make to much out of it...... I didn't use any on the diy coffee can hydro either. I can't tell a difference in my experiences.

youtube is certainly a excellent research source... :rofl:...
ANYONE can post ANYTHING on it bud. It's an entertaining venue, but "I" tend to doubt the validity of "anything" posted there.
...and btw, I disabled the direct link for you..:)

While youtube can have some interesting stuff, it also has a bunch of stuff that is B S. I always take everything I see on there with a grain of salt. For instance, the video you watched could have been made by the people that manufacture or sell that rooting powder.

If your going to buy powder, compare the percent of butyric acid in it to the gel. The gel may be 3 times more money, but it's usually got 5 times the active ingredient.

:D
Happy cloning!

FWIW, I've been cloning for a few years and with more than a few techniques.

The easiest for a noob and using rockwool is simply Clonex gel and the Clonex solution.

I use the Clonex gel regardless. Rockwool, jiffy pucks, used mix, whatever. Powders don't even come close to gel.

The Clonex solution (used to water the clones), and MY tap water, ends up right at the right pH for rockwool (5.5-5.8+-). RW's pH is a bit basic and you need to 'pre condition' it with the 5.5-5.8 solution or pH adjusted water.

Use those 2 Clonex products with the RW and it's about as simple as you can get.

Right now, I'm doing a batch with jiffy pucks and K-L-N simply because I ran out of the solution. Still have the gel (used it on the cuts), and RW cubes and will go back to them when I get around to ordering more solution.

When I do the pucks, I just take twice as many cuts as I need because the success rate is much lower. No big deal if you plan ahead.

great info..thanks..ive already ordered a powder...and my plan was to use the powder and water with super thrive treated H2O..im not asking for a success rate..just am i on the right track..is super thrive treated, PH balanced distilled water enough for feeding clones...is this okay/safe?

Would a Rose by any other name smell as sweet?


I'm saying no...lol...thanks for reply..there's nothing like the "First Time"...i cant wait to see how this turns out...And from what i've read, all 3 of my strains(Lambs Bread--Super Silver Haze--Jack Herer)produce great outdoors(the purpose of the clones)...not too sure how big of a plant(LST'd)in a 20gal tote will grow..i've always planeted in ground...so all in all..im having a couple first...lol
