Well just wanted to show you guys my little babys they are 3 week old. i could not want more out of my 2nd grow.
Clones do best under florous IMHO. They don't produce much heat and you can get them within 2-3 inches of the plant with no worries. Slap a low speed oscillating fan. (3) 42 watt cool white florous. and let them get strong. After all they were cut away from the mom pretty quick. Not like a seed.Slowhand: You don't need much light at all for clones.
Yo dude! It looks like you've got a drip system goin on there. Am I right?smokey said:I have a 48w floro grow light i will switch it over to, ty. Just was not sure which was better. How do you find out about witch strands clone, if you can? I am more then confident that it is a sativa b/c i got it out of some mexican weed.
Hey Slowhand, what's up dude?Slowhand said:You don't need much light at all for clones.You might have a strain that doesn't clone very well and some strains don't clone at all.
Slowhand said:Hi Stoney Bud, The lowryders that i'm finishing up right now won't clone and i've been told that some other ruderalias won't clone. I think it has something to do with the auto flowering plants but some of them will clone.
Hey stoney, would this a good prctice to do no matter what? would it increase my clone survival rate. I am at 3 survivals out of 5 on average.Stoney Bud said:I sometimes have to score the bottom two inches of the cutting. This increases the hormonal effect and radically accelerates the rooting.
No, the scoring is just to get to the softer inner stem. When the stem is already a soft stem, scoring might hurt the stem.Mutt said:Hey stoney, would this a good prctice to do no matter what? would it increase my clone survival rate. I am at 3 survivals out of 5 on average.
Rootone is good stuff. When you cut your clones, make sure you get about 4 inches with at least 4 leaves. Put the bottom of the stem underneath the water and make a 45 degree cut on the bottom while holding it under water. This prevents an air embolism from happening. Then, quickly put it into your rooting hormone and then put it into the hole you've already made with a pencil. Try not to knock off any of the powder if your using the powder. Gently firm the soil around the stem until you know it has enough packing to stay put. Water from the bottom. This will keep the stem from moving.Mutt said:Rootone with soil.
