Made about 50 cuttings on sunday and they look like shit. I moistened the cubes, cut them with a sterile knife, dipped the clones in clonex and put them in their greenhouse, and watered. What am I doing wrong. If I lose these clones I have to start all over and Im going to cry like a little ***** If I have to do that. PLEASE HELP.

I'm betting that they've had too much sun. Clones need very little light. Take them inside or at least into Indirect light and put a flourescent light over them. About 12 inches away is good.

It may also be heat stress. Getting them inside will solve both.

Hurry.

If it's a flourescent, then move it to 12 inches from the clone tops and keep it on 24/7.

Strait water. NO NUTES

They should pick back up in as little as 3 to 4 hours. By tomorrow, they should be fine again.

Well, I think they're fucked. Im going to go to my growshop today to see if there's anything else I can get. But the only thing I can think of is that my roomie and I werent careful enough when we made the clones and underestimated their sensitivity needs. Thanks stoney bud for walking me through everything yesterday. Worst comes to worst, I will try to make more clones in the next few days.

did you mist em a couple of times a day and take the dome off to let em breathe for a little bit and get fresh air?

I take my dome off about 1 hr. 2X a day. and keep it well misted with store bought spring water.

I was told by my growing master to not even crack the opening for at least 6 days because they're too sensitive. I have been misting though.

I think I see the problem in your pics.

Those are what I call peat pellets I think. What are they exactly? The hole you've stuck the clone into should be squeezed against the stalks of the clones. I see in some of the pics what seems to be a hole still around the stalk of the clone. If that's the case, then not enough plant material is in contact with the moist, dark, media. No moisture is touching the stalk much and light is hitting it. Resolve both of those problems and your clones will perk back up. They still had good life in them in the last pics.

Wet the pellets good. Gently squeeze the pellets until you've sealed them good around the stem and squeezed out half the water. Set them into the growing spots, wet them real good again and don't touch them again for two days while the dome is shut. They will perk almost immediately. In a matter of a few hours. Your misting is what has been keeping them alive probably.

If I'm right in what I'm seeing.

If you want, just risk two and try it. If they perk, then do the rest.

It shouldn't get any warmer than 90 inside that dome. If it does, then the plants are better off in the open air. No fans. No movement of any kind. That's most of the secret. That and plenty of moisture, a good anti-bacterial and a good rooting hormone. Ten to twenty days and you should have viable clones.

Don't mist the clones while they're weak. It hurts more than it helps. The weight of the water on them can hurt them more. After they have perked up real good in a few days, mist them lightly once a day. Give them some fresh air for 10 minutes or so.

Good luck to you man.

Hahahahaa! Train wreck! Man, it did look pretty rough in those pics. I saw some life in them and I'm glad you could get that many growing good again. You're very welcome for anything I could do to help. I've learned most of my lessons the hard way.

One thing you'll have to look for in the mature plants. Severe stress like that sometimes causes hermies. You'll need to look each of your plants over very well after they get preflowers or you could flower some cuttings as soon as the plants are large enough to take clones from safely. The cuttings would tell you the males anyway. The identification of any hermies would have to be later.

The preflowers on the mature plant are you best indicator after a large stress. A cutting may only show female, where the entire plant may have flowers of both sex.

Good luck to you man, and when you notice preflowers on your plants, look them over well. Hermies can be a real problem in a grow room full of ladies.

first off....18 hrs/day for clones. 2nd....should be under a dome for at least a week. keep dome raised by some sticks to create air flow and spray inner dome w/ superthrive at least 2 times/day. Also, a great product i've found is liquid "stim-root". This shit rocks! I'm pulling 48 outta 50 clones
Try this......
