    Yeah but if you are really depending on it, take a few more. ime the rate of cloning can go down as well

    Hey QB -- I forgot to get my cuts until late in bloom -- So the little thing had to root and reveg at the same time -- I like to take my cuts about a month into bloom when they are beginning to pack the leaves closer together -- Makes them really bush !-Like Zim said U always start more cuttings than U need !-- Then keep the best and leave the rest !
    S-x-OL = Squish -x- Oregon Lemon !-- rooted in an aero cloner !-- I like being able to watch root development !

    QB - U can do a lot of stuff too this plant !-- One of my "midgets"-- That would be Barney's Farm "Nightshade " -- That is the whole plant !-- My boxes got 34 grow spots each !-- I don't grow them all like this but I flip a 1 foot tall plant to bloom routinely !-Using 2 inch aero baskets the plants can get top heavy so I keep them small ! 20171224_184437-1.jpg

    I usually buy clones and take the cuttings towards the end of the veg stage.

    Most of my clones come from the removal of the lower third of the plant about a week before I flip to Flower. This way I already know the plants are female and it helps the flowering plant focus its energy on producing better buds with fewer popcorn buds. I have taken emergency cuts from plants a month into flowering and they threw roots, it just took longer.

    QB -- This is my grow system !-- The pump assembly sitting on top the box goes inside -- It's a filtered 396 gallon per hour filtered pump --glued to a ceramic tile for stability-- Nute water sprays from the reddish micro sprayers on the PVC spray manifold --15 minutes on 15 off -- There are also a couple air stones to move fresh oxygenated air thru the box and roots !-- The checkerboard pattern on the box lid has 7 rows of 5 holes -- One of the grow holes I use for my pump cord and air lines-- So 34 spots in each !-- I packing up to move the grow -- The boxes work well as cloners but as long as U keep them small U can grow in them !-- I'll be moving up on plant size and changing the way I bloom ! 20180913_121239.jpg
